G-Power Pumps New Blood Into Certain BMW 5-Series Models

Unlike some of their other upgrades, G-Power’s latest offering, aimed at the new BMW 5-Series, isn’t all that flashy, although power is the key word here.

For starters, by using the Bi-Tronik 5 V1 module, the tuner has lifted the output of the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo straight-six engine that powers the 540i, from 340PS (335hp) and 450Nm (332lb-ft) of torque, to 400PS (394hp) and 540Nm (398lb-ft) of torque.

G-Power has also massaged the 3.0-liter turbo diesel straight-six lumps found on the M550d and 540d, helping them reach new heights. The former normally makes 400PS (394hp) and 760Nm (561lb-ft) of torque, but after getting paired with the D-Tronik 5 V1 module, it puts down 460PS (454hp) and 860Nm (634lb-ft) of torque.

The 540d, on the other hand, saw its output raised from 320PS (315hp) and 680Nm (502lb-ft) of torque, to 385PS (380hp) and 750Nm (553lb-ft) of torque.

Additionally, different versions of the D-Tronik 5 V1 module are also available for the 520d, 525d, and 530d versions of the new BMW 5-Series, so G-Power really has gone the extra mile trying to attract 5-Series owners in search of some additional muscle.

As a final touch, the company is also offering a set of Hurricane RR ultra-light forged alloy wheels, available in two sizes: 9 and 10.5×20-inch and 9 and 10.5×21-inch, wrapped in either 245/35R20 and 285/30R20 tires, or 255/30R21 and 295/25R21 rubber.

    This mild tunings are always very interesting, but then they end up to be more expensive than an M5 or Alpina. Most of them are just not worth it… I’d like to know how much it will cost.
