With the diesel performance upgrade, the 5-series gets an extra 37 HP (27 kW), increasing the maximum torque of 50 Nm and the maximum speed to 252 km/h. Despite the increase in the power of the ACS5 3.0d, moderate fuel consumption, outstanding driving performance, and excellent durability remain the same. The performance upgrade not only includes the control module but also a sports rear silencer of V2A special steel with chromed tailpipe trim in racing design.
The suspension solutions of the BMW 5 Series E60 & E61 have been thoroughly tested in an extensive program, and matched to the use of low profile performance tyres. The sports suspension allows lowering the car by around 30 millimeters, providing more sports handling and excellent driving comfort. The anti-roll bars and the racing aluminum strut brace stabilizes the front end especially in braking maneuvers and swift cornering.
The front spoiler gives the 5 series E60 & E61 a more appealing outfit and improves the downforce on the front axle. The front spoiler is integrated with the air ducts that provide optimal cooling for the front brakes. The new side skirts elongate the side aspect and the aerodynamics sports mirrors further refine the 5 series. A rear roof spoiler, a rear spoiler, and a rear skirt are available which gives balance at the rear. AC Schnitzer keeps personalization options open for the customers and offers additional Chromeline set to choose.
The highlight in the wheels for the 5-series are the new Type IV Racing Rims, which comes in size 9.0J x 20″ at the front and 10.0J x 20″ at the rear. The new racing rims allow the use of tyre sizes 255/30 R 20 (front) and 295/25 R20 (rear).

Customers can also choose the wheel designs Type II or Type III.
