The program is called the KS5-S and it boost the M5’s 4.4-liter V8 to 600 hp. That’s around 40 bhp on top. Because of that, the top speed is now 330 km/h but one would not have to reach such extremes to notice the additional power. The Kelleners Sport valve-controlled stainless-steel rear silencers with four 90 mm diameter tailpipes will make sure you get the point as soon as you turn the key.
On the outside, the mirror-caps have been given a carbon fiber makeover. That is also true for the Kellener rear spoiler and diffuser. The front lip spoiler and side mouldings complete the custom aerodynamic kit. (more…)
Proper E60 nostalgia coming from Prior Design. It’s a complete “Widebody Aerodynamic-Kit” for the previous BMW 5 Series. Willing to add some character to your old bimmer?
We are talking high grade materials here that are easy to fit, flex and paint. The kit consists of a front bumper, hood air-scoops (which are more like vents), two front fenders, side skirts, rear fenders, a rear bumper and finally a trunk spoiler as optional. All is TÜV certified so you know it’s Prior – quality is their signature. Must say, the end result is rather pleasant. Fattening, but pleasant.
It will cost you however. A price shy of 4000 Euros or in other words around 5000 Dollars. That’s a lot of character we think. (more…)

Took my car to the local drag strip last night and boy was I happy.
My first run was a 11.92 @ 119 mph with a 1.9 sixty foot.
My second run after getting use to the ridiculous launch controll I was able to get a 1.85 sixty foot leading to 11.78 @119mph. I think I can get a little better time out of it as I get used to the launch controll.
The car is bone stock including tires and air pressure .
All runs done in comfort suspension setting, reducing the amount of tire spin do to wait transfer to the rear. Sport plus everything else. (more…)
