You know the drill; you’re a grown man now, you can’t have a sports car and even if you’re buying a fun to drive car like the BMW 5 Series, it’s likely to be an estate.
The F11 5 Series Touring is still a fun car to have but you cant’ really be proud of it sitting in a parking lot to the full extent.
So what are you to do with your diesel kiddie shifter? How about you take a look at Kelleners Sport’ catalog and remind everybody that you have one of the best engines on the market under the bonnet.
You can have it restyled to come with a three-part grill, a new front spoiler lip, sporty side skirts and even a rear diffuser.
Most of the guys in management don’t really know what that thing is. They might identify the sport exhaust system with its four round 90 millimetre stainless steel tail pipes but that’s about it.
Regarding the option of a 19 inch wheel set or a 20 inch one, it’ll be tricky to have anybody say anything bad about them.
And boy will the compliments keep coming in when that engine under its bonnet gets a bit of a tune up. So far the most popular models are available.
The F11 BMW 550i Touring will be able to develop 490 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque whereas the 535d version will push out as much as 376 horses and 557 lb-ft.
That’ll certainly be enough to keep up with that smug young manager’s sporty sedan any day.
