BMW launches M5 and M6 upgrades

BMW has launched a line of retrofit accessories for BMW M5 and M6 models. Details here

BMW has launched new line of M Performance accessories for its M5 and M6 models, off the back of Martin Tomczyk’s success in the DTM series. Upgrades include visual changes, as well as some performance upgrades too – which are all available to retrofit to any M5 or M6 model.

For those who desire a slightly different sound from their ‘M’ car, BMW now offers an official Akrapovic exhaust option. Made from Titanium, the exhaust system not only changes (and BMW says improves) the sound of the car, but reduces weight by around 10kg.

There’re also a number of other bits in the interior that can be replaced with carbon counterparts. Externally you can buy yet more carbon fibre, including the rear spoiler, mirror caps, rear diffuser and rear exhaust trims.
