Too Much? Hamann Wants €105,000 For This BMW 540i Touring

How much is a body kit worth to you? On some cars, it can make all the difference in the world, yes, but on a family wagon, it can often be pointless.

That’s not to say that wagons can’t look sporty – the Audi RS6 Avant comes to mind with its flared fenders and powerful stance, but that car has all the power in the world, whereas this G31 BMW 5-Series Touring is stock when it comes to performance.

Let’s start with what we can see though. Hamann lowered the car and installed a custom rear muffler with black anodized tailpipe covers, to go with the new body kit – custom front spoiler, rear spoiler, roof spoiler, air inlet covers, rear winglets and side sill panels. Then, a set of 21-inch wheels was added, while the interior gained black anodized aluminum pedals and footrest, plus a set of exclusive floor mats.

This 5-Series is also loaded with some of BMW’s finest features. According to the tuner, it has a heated steering wheel, active steering, sport-automatic transmission, Comfort Access, M Sports pack, Rear View Camera, trailer coupling, panoramic roof, heated seats front and rear, ambient lighting, Harman Kardon surround sound, Apple CarPlay, BMW gesture control, Wi-Fi hotspot, sat-nav, Park Distance Control and more.

It’s even equipped with BMW’s Innovation Package, which holds Adaptive LED headlights, High-Beam Assistant, Driving Assistant Plus, Head-Up Display and Multi-function Instrument Display.

While this car’s €104,900 ($129,396) price tag includes taxes, it’s still considerably higher than what you would normally spend on a stock 540i xDrive Touring, which in Germany would be €66,350 ($81,844), if you went for the Sport-Automatic Steptronic model.

Of course, start adding all those expensive options and you’ll soon be pushing €90,000 ($111,000).

    Impressive indeed, But that price in a time when Wagons are not desirable anymore!, no thanks.

      Station wagons remind me of the Brady Bunch.

        That is why they don’t sell. The majority of buyers have a negative attitude toward traditional wagons. Yet,a CUV or SUV, to my eye, is merely a jacked up wagon. Oh well, 50 million people voted for that guy too, so there is no accounting for taste. Too bad.

          I completely agree with you. I just don’t understand negative attitudes towards wagons. That being said, I am of the minority that is fond of wagons, particularly the Merc’s, Audi’s and Volvo’s. This BMW however, is not a looking.

      Would take this Wagon over any mama’s and papa’s SUVs

    Looks great. For the money, I’d rather have a Range, though.

  • SteersUright

    Damn, I usually don’t even like wagons but that black beast looks SWEET. That said, you can totally forget it at that price though.
