Once again, AC Schnitzer has developed a complete product range for this model which includes performance upgrades, exhaust systems, wheel and tyre combinations, aerodynamic bodystyling components and accessories for the interior.

More power is available for vehicles with diesel or petrol engines, in both rear-wheel and xDrive variants. The range of performance upgrades is vast, giving extra power of between 34 and 93 hp depending on basic engine.

Sports rear silencers made of stainless steel with chromed tailpipes provide the sonorous note. And AC Schnitzer of course provides suitable combinations of wheels and tyres for the new 5-series LCI series: alloy wheels in BiColor or silver, or forged racing rims in BiColor – what a choice for the customer. Or you might prefer the totally new Type V forged alloys in 20″, which are a real flyweight at just 11 kg.

A complete aerodynamic bodykit is also part of the AC Schnitzer special accessory range. Aluminium accessories such as pedal sets and gear knobs – together with velours foot mats – complete the range.
