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.
