Fresh M Performance Parts Turn 2019 BMW X5 Into An Athlete Of Sorts

For those customers who want their all-new BMW X5 to look different from their neighbors’, the automaker offers a range of M Performance Parts.

As usual, the catalog includes sportier exterior and interior elements, as well as performance parts. To improve the looks of the 2019 X5, BMW offers several carbon fiber add-on parts with a high-gloss finish. At the front, the M Performance front winglet attached to the bumper and the M Performance front air intake contribute to a more muscular appearance.

The side view is dominated by the 20-inch Star Spoke 748 M light alloy wheels in a Jet Black matt finish. Interestingly, the rims feature all-terrain tires, something you wouldn’t expect to find on a BMW X5. Obviously, you can have performance tires as well, mounted on wheels up to 22 inches big.

Behind the wheels, one can see the massive BMW Performance 19-inch braking system with inner-vented and perforated discs and red calipers. Also noticeable from the sides are the carbon fiber mirror caps and the M Performance side sill foils in matt black with “M Performance” lettering. The latter element is a visual trick that helps make the X5 more slender than it actually is.

Customers who don’t like the huge “hockey stick” but still want people to know their X5 features M Performance Parts, can opt for a less visible side skirt adhesive film in Frozen Black.

Moving on to the rear, the accessorized X5 boasts a sizeable M Performance diffuser made from carbon fiber, as well as winglets crafted from the same lightweight material. Both add visual muscle to the Bavarian SUV.

The sporty theme continues inside with the M Performance steering wheel and its 12 o’clock marking and carbon fiber/Alcantara trim. The stainless steel pedal covers and M Performance floor mats round off the upgrades.

Finally, BMW also offers an M Performance Drive Analyser that consists of an OBD stick and a smartphone app. The system gives the driver all the main driving dynamics data, offering logging and analysis options. In other words, you can have a telemetry system on an SUV. This technology also enables trip recording on a smartphone video camera, driving data logging and route tracking based on GPS positioning. The M Performance Parts for the new BMW X5 will be available from March 2019.
