Hartge upgrades the BMW 535i GT

With the recent release of Hartge’s upgrade kit for the F10 BMW 520d, I kind of expected to see another one of their products really soon.

F10 BMW 520d with Hartge upgrade

Hartge is here with another nice build, this time for the F10 BMW 520d, and in a traditional Hartge way, the press release comes with a video.

Normally, an F10 BMW 520d is good for around 184 Hp and 380 Nm of torque, which is not really that bad. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement. And with the Hartge ECU kit, the 520d is taken up to 218 Hp and 450 Nm of torque. This is basically the kind of power developed by the BMW 525d version.

Even before BMW became the global manufacturer it is today, they had a strong following, with the aftermarket specialists taking a shine to their products early on.

Such is the case with Hartge, that was prepping Bimmers for as long as I remember.

Bulgaria’s Vilner Tuning Company left their mark on the latest models from BMW and more specifically the F10 BMW 5 Series and F12 BMW 6 series.

The tuning was especially done inside these beautiful BMW models, but not only. At the outside a white matte foil was applied along with some new beautiful rims. Vilner added new spoilers to the rear hoods, and the rear lights were also given a make-up.
