i5 M60 full M Performance Carbon Fiber Kit Install Video

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


We borrowed the i5 M60 from BMW Park Lane to do driving review, and before we gave it back we decided to fit the full M Performance kit to see what the car would start to look like modified.

What do you think of the M Performance kit? Next up for us I think we'd have liked to have lowered the car down a little to close that arch gap!

I'd rather have some black parts wrapped the same color as the car. Fire red.
But I'm also older.

Does the performance kit actually improve the performance or is it just eye candy?

These should help improve the down force a bit, which is to say handling will improve at the expense of range. That said, I think most people will get these for the eye candy factor

Like 0.1% improvement? 😅

Eye candy though is at least 15+%

I'd also like to see what it would look like if someone wrapped the rocker covers and lower bumper trims with a different color than the car, along the lines of the E34 M5. I think a red or blue car with silver rockers/bumper trim would look sharp.

I like the kit… makes the i5 look more aggressive. I would probably choose a different color for the i5 altogether though.

That's saying something ........

Also, can we please stop talking about HP? I know it's one way to measure cars but where the FVCK are you going to use that? Serious. On all season tires no less. /rant

Car looks nice for a luxury/"Family Car with kids" on a road trip with the added equipment to increase speed. However, give the car back to BMW Park Lane the way they loaned you the car.

Amazingly these AWD EVs still get stellar acceleration on A/S tires.
