5 series M Sport gets the Hamann treatment

If you think that.....

BMW is taking their sweet time in coming out with the latest M5; or
if you think that BMW's M Sport body kit is too tame for you; or
if you know you can't afford the upcoming F10 M5 as your paycheck isn't large enough; and
if you think that your 520d with the M sport body kit still looks like an 'unclemobile'....

then you should head over to Hamann for a makeover.

This kit differs from the Hamann Motorsport kit for the normal F10 5 series as it adds to the M Sport parts. The front end receives a lower lip/splitter setup, the sides receive thicker skirts, the rear looks like it only has larger quad-tailpipes (from a sports muffler setup) as well as a tiny boot-lid spoiler and a roof spoiler. Fat 21inch alloys on suspension that is lowered by about 35mm rounds up the package as do the monotone rear lights.

The interior gets the usual alloy pedals and carbon fiber trimming. Nothing out of the ordinary and nothing seriously worth mentioning.

At best this is all dress up. It does look good but if you're all about max power then this is not for you. The exhaust system may add 5bhp or so to a 520d or 520i and the car may feel like its handling better (with those huge wheels and lowered suspension) but aim it at the nearest pothole and weep.

I suppose Hamann is doing the bread and butter stuff first for the 5 series and is waiting to let loose its tuning skills on the upcoming M5. I mean, why bother modding a 520i like crazy when they can go ballistic on the Full Monty that should be launched as a 2012 model sometime soon?
