• BMW M Performance Parts and Accessories now available for the 2014, 2015 F15 X5 including N55 engine tune

      Craving performance parts for your new F15 X5? Well, BMW has some parts for you but really the only performance boost you will get is through software and only if you have an N55 engine. So, if you happen to have a 2014 or 2015 X5 xDrive35i and M Performance Power Kit giving a boost of 20 horsepower and 32 pound-feet of torque is available. Total output rises to 320 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Yes, this output is easily surpassed in the aftermarket for far less money.

      If you have the xDrive50i model with the N63TU BMW does not offer an M Performance Power Kit so you are out of luck. That is unless, once again, you seek out the aftermarket which can provide larger gains than BMW would give you anyway. The main appeal of the M Performance Parts is for the older guy who does not want the hassle of removing his tune before dealer visits and to maintain the warranty. Basically, this is an option for people who even the mild (and expensive) Dinan upgrades are too big of a hassle.

      BimmerBoost does not recommend any of these parts as a serious performance boost other than the M Performance Brake Kit. The 19 inch rotors borrowed from the X5M offer a serious performance upgrade. That said, this can also be exceeded in the aftermarket.

      The majority of the parts are cosmetics with 21 inch wheels, carbon fiber overlayed trim, diffusers, splitters, black grilles, and M Performance Decals.

      BMW is smart and will definitely get a bunch of extra money with these parts by slapping the M logo all over everything. Press release and pictures below.




















      Woodcliff Lake, NJ Ė February 11, 2014. . . At the 2014 Chicago Auto Show,BMW of North America today announced that just four months after the new third-generation BMW X5 arrived in US showrooms, it will offer a full complement of BMW M Performance Parts. BMW M Performance Parts are accessories now available for a wide variety of current models that enable the enthusiast to tailor their BMW to their individual tastes with a sporty, track-inspired character.

      As with M Performance Parts already available, carbon fiber plays a prominent role with the exterior enhancements for the new X5, including mirror caps, front splitter, rear diffuser and rear aero flaps. A rear spoiler, high-gloss black kidney grilles and M Performance rocker panel decals are also available. Double-spoke 21-inch wheels with performance tires complete the aggressive look.

      The carbon fiber treatment continues in the interior with an available Alcantara steering wheel with carbon fiber accents as well as a carbon fiber cover for the gear selector lever. Available stainless steel pedals add a finishing touch to the interior.

      BMW M Performance Parts are not just about show. An M Performance Power Kit is available for the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo inline-six in the X5 xDrive35i. It adds 20 horsepower and 32 lb-ft of torque, bring total output to 320 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. The kit also provides sharper throttle calibration for a more direct connection with the accelerator pedal. The available M Performance Exhaust, available with chrome exhaust tips, provides the perfect complement to the increased power.

      Another compliment to the enhanced acceleration and responsiveness provided by the M Performance Power Kit is the increased stopping performance provided by the M Performance Brake Kit. The M Performance Brake Kit for the new X5 includes six- piston calipers with 19-inch steel rotors largely adapted from the previous generation X5M.

      There is one additional benefit for BMW M Performance Parts. When they are installed at a BMW Vehicle Distribution Center before the time of delivery, BMW M Performance Parts not only carry the full four-year or 50,000 mile factory warranty, but they can also be fully residualized in a lease from BMW Financial Services.

      These latest accessories join an already extensive list of M Performance Parts, available from an authorized BMW Center or online at www.shopbmwusa.com.

        Just judging from the photos if the wheels are 21" the rotors look to be a bit more than 2" smaller.
