BMW 5-Series by Vorsteiner

Vorsteiner released a new tuning kit, this time for the BMW 5-Series sedan, known as the F10. The new package brings a series of styling improvements with no performance tweaks.

If the owner would have just stuck to a simple wheel swap, the new 20 inch Vossen set would have worked wonders. That being said, there are better wheels out there if you want to tune your BMW 5 Series. But that is not the whole deal with it.

As a general rule, I enjoy seeing tuning projects from a few dedicated aftermarket specialists, and when it comes to Bimmers, Vorsteiner is definitely one to follow.

The kit will be presented at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas, and this is just another reason that you should be excited about the build. But when I saw what they plan, I couldn’t help but feel a bit let down. The M-Tech kit will feature carbon fiber parts, made using a pre-preg method.
