In a previous post, i wrote about a very sleek body kit for the 5 series models, the aero kit from prior design. They released a new full aerodynamic body kit, which they say is an upgraded version of first. The Prior Design aerodynamic package builds atop the previous release by adding a new front-bumper that fits all 5 Series models except the new M5, also new side skirts and rear add-on diffusor.
A new tuning body kit has been released for the F10 5 series model . It’s about the Vorsteiner package, and i must say its simply gorgeous. It is one of the best looking aftermarket kits to get the F10 to stand up.
The full kit includes the following tuning elements :

When you get behind the wheel of the saloon edition of the BMW 5 series, you will encounter a dashboard with a layout that represents an object lesson in simplicity. While there are a significant number of functions, they are all available through the rotary controller on the iDrive – BMWs own sat nav system. You can view the various functions via the widescreen monitor and, once you have accustomed yourself to the system, you will in all likelihood find it much easier to use than the standard touch screen layout. There is an electric adjustment option for both the backrest and the seat height, but you might find it easier to do manual adjustments to find a comfortable driving position.
The new BMW 5 series can be purchased second hand at much cheaper prices, why not visit motors.co.uk for further listings of available models.
