The specialists are renowned for their timely BMW conversions, and they’re not going to disappoint with their new project commissioned especially for the new generation 5 Series.
And granting access to extra oomph is an easy fix, because G-Power works all of its magic through an additional engine control module. The D-Tronik 5 V1 is custom made for the 3.0-liter inline-six diesel engine, with the M550d xDrive reaching 453 horsepower (338 kW) – 59 hp (44 kW) above the regular version, along with an earth-moving 634 pound-feet (860 Newton-meters) of torque, a good 74-lb-ft (100-Nm) upgrade over the stock figure. You can also put the pedal to the floor in the 540d and dial output and torque to 380 hp (283 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm), compared to the standard 315 hp (235 kW) and 502 lb-ft (680 Nm).
Meanwhile, go for the Bi-Tronik 5 V1 for BMW’s 3.0-liter inline-six gasoline mill and you’ll get the 540i to 394 hp (294 kW), again a healthy 59-hp (44-kW) upgrade. Torque also jumps to 398 lb-ft (540 Nm), an extra 66 lb-ft (90 Nm). G-Power is asking 2,318.32 euros for the modules, with the parts keeping BMW’s factory diagnostics and engine protections. G-Power can also hook customers to the new BMW’s factory diagnostics and engine protections alloys in 20- and 21-inch diameters, both coming with hefty prices: 6,680.67 euros and 7,647.06 euros, respectively.
