Sterckenn Gives The BMW M5 And M2 Some Subtle Visual Tweaks

British tuning company Streckenn has unveiled a series of visual modifications for the BMW M5 and M2.

One could argue that both M cars leave the German car manufacturer’s factory looking great, but these upgrades developed by Streckenn are relatively subtle and suit the cars’ styling. In fact, most people would be hard-pressed to identify the aftermarket parts from the OEM exterior panels.

Starting with the M5, the tuner has developed a bespoke carbon fiber front lip spoiler and a pair of new carbon fiber inserts for the air intakes. At the rear, you will find a bespoke carbon fiber diffuser that adds a serious amount of aggression to the super sedan but isn’t over-the-top. Owners of non-M badged 5-Series will be pleased to know that they can order similar parts for their rides.

It is a similar story with the M2. Keen to not mess with the design of the rear-wheel drive sports car too much, Streckenn has created a subtle, yet sharp, carbon fiber splitter and a new diffuser.

While the M5 is a seriously impressive performance car, it’s the M2 which has been making headlines recently, and for a good reason. Not only is it much more affordable but, in just a couple of months, perhaps at the LA Auto Show in November, the German car manufacturer will unveil the long-awaited M2 CS. Production of this version, which will be lighter and more powerful than the Competition, is expected to be limited to just a couple thousand units.

    Thank you. I have been thinking the same ever since “addons” came out. I do like the look/style of these, I am sure they would make replacement pieces also, well maybe…

    Generally, I would agree with you. Like those mirror caps that go over the plastic mirrors–and even if they didn’t, probably weigh nearly the same anyway. However, these are fairly small contrasting bits that look good and are tasteful, so I’m okay with them as just style concession. The spoiler lips are functional though.

    For me, I think glossy carbon fiber looks goofy in the interior of a car, especially a luxury one. But all the top M and AMG models use the stuff standard. The M5 weighs well over 2 tons, I’m sure that 2 pounds of wood veneer or aluminum trim isn’t going to make one bit of difference.
