In the slipstream of the DTM winners: BMW M Performance at the Essen Motor Show 2012

BMW M Performance 3 Series Touring thumb In the slipstream of the DTM winners: BMW M Performance at the Essen Motor Show 2012Just a few weeks after the triple triumph at the German Touring Car Masters (DTM), the BMW appearance at the Essen Motor Show 2012 is inspired by the brand’s sensationally successful comeback season. The current BMW M Performance range is presented at the international tuning fair, celebrating the success of BMW in the driver, team and manufacturer rankings. The retrofit products from the program of Original BMW Accessories perfectly exemplify the intensive transfer of technology from motor racing. The range of products from the areas of drive, suspension, aerodynamics and cockpit is currently being extended to other BMW models. At the Essen Motor Show from December 1st – 9th 2012, visitors will be able to see the world premiere of the BMW M Performance accessories for the new BMW 3 Series Touring (available from April 2013). There will also be an attractive program of activities to create DTM atmosphere and motor racing flair at the exhibition stand, which covers a surface area of approximately 480 square metres. For example trade fair visitors will be able to take part in the “Pit Stop Challenge”, demonstrating their tyre-changing skills on a DTM racing car or be able to obtain BMW DTM driver’s original signatures at one of the autograph sessions.

Kelleners BMW M5 F10


kelleners sport ks5 s bmw m5 thumb Kelleners BMW M5 F10The 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…)

prior design widebody kit bmw 5 e60 thumb Prior Design Widebody Kit BMW 5 Series E60Proper 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…)
