BMW has released a wide-ranging catalogue of M Performance parts for its recently refreshed M5 Competition, with some items also available for the cooking models in the facelifted 5 Series range.

As is always the case, the Munich-based firm says the accessories were developed “using the comprehensive know-how” of the its M division and comprise “sporty” design accents as well as “driving dynamics and performance” updates.

Many of the new M Performance parts are fashioned from carbon, including the front attachment on both sides and the front splitter. In addition to a variant of the grille surround in high-gloss black, the item is available in a carbon finish.

Similarly, the M Performance side-mirror caps, air breathers and side-sill attachments are made from the lightweight material, with two rear spoiler designs available (along with a carbon rear diffusor).

Inside, you can specify your M5 Competition with an M Performance steering wheel complete with Alcantara grip recesses, large thumb-rests and a “special lining” for maximum grip. BMW also offers an M Performance carbon/leather or carbon/Alcantara tiller, as well as a “pro” version with blue highlights.

Interestingly, the Bavarian firm furthermore offers an M Performance sports suspension for the M5 Competition, with the coilover arrangement allowing the vehicle to be lowered by between 5 and 20 millimetres. There is also an optional sports brake system, together with 20-inch M Performance forged wheels in a Y-spoke design with a Ferric Grey matte finish.

What else? Well, BMW says an M Performance key case with an Alcantara/carbon finish is available, as are an M Performance tyre bag and a “breathable and machine-washable” indoor car cover.
