BMW 5 Series M Sport by Japan Skipper unveiled in Tokyo

So I hear this company created a new package for the BMW 5 Series M Sport. It’s the current F10 model so we might as well take a second look.

This company is called Japan Skipper and it’s starting to get pretty hard to figure out where it’s based at or where it’s originating from.

All jokes aside, the Japanese tuner came up with a pretty acceptable package for one of our favorite cars. There really is nothing to give it away.

Schwabenfolia wraps F11 BMW 5 Series Touring

Schabenfolia came to our attention not so long ago as they’ve really monstered the appearance of the 1 Series M Coupe to a hulk-like presence.

Since then, they’ve been really busy, churning out lots and lots of projects of which we’re unfortunately not that interested given that most of them are not BMW products.

This one is however, and it’s quite the lovable model, the one we all know as the F11 BMW 5 Series Touring. Take care as I’m about to say something unusual for me.

F10 BMW 5 Series meets Strasse Forged

Here’s the shortlist of what we’re looking down at: the finest mid sized luxury sedan currently available on the market, a specific alloy wheel maker and a capable photographer.

Obviously, the first is the F10 BMW 5 Series. The second needs a bit of an explanation since it’s the guys at Strasse Forged.

The third, the photographer, is pretty much mandatory regardless of the sort of tuning or industry launch we’re dealing with.

E60 BMW 5 Series by Prior Design

Prior Design have a reasonable amount of experience around BMW vehicles, particularly the older generation models such as the E60.

In today’s piece we’ll be looking at one of their widebody setups, one that’s custom tailored around the previous gen 5 Series.

As usual with such conversions, there have been replacements made to the front and rear bumpers, the front fenders are wider and there are rear wheel arch extensions.

Unusual wrap – purple F10 BMW 5 Series

It’s always been my favorite color and I still look in admiration to all sorts of old techno violet BMW 3 Series models I see going about.

Naturally, I had to pay attention when a couple of custom car aficionados decided to take an F10 BMW 5 Series and give it some retro coloring.

I will accept that it’s not the one look that everybody agrees with but the I really believe the finished product has something SEMA about itself.

Senner Tuning E60 BMW 5 Series

Remember the time when tuning cars were something you saw on the street and rarely ever spoke about without being amazed at what it can do?

It’s mostly gone, every major makeover these days is not something the owner of a car talks about but something that hits the internet before its made.

Thankfully, there are still plenty of companies out there that let their customers stand out by themselves. If you don’t want anybody to know about it or you want to tell them yourself, you need to give these guys a look around the shop.

G-Power’s E60 BMW 5 Series

I usually say some tuning company got misty eyed about an older car when they start doing up any outdated model of a popular vehicle.

That would certainly fit the bill for the G-Power E60 BMW 5 Series. Then again, let’s remind ourselves that we live in the real world.

Cars live for much longer than usual here and if that’s the case, why not make your own stand out… or maybe outperform the newest model?

Wald International Black Bison BMW 5 Series

Japanese tuner Wald International have made a kit for just about every car out there. It’s always simple and it’s always called the Black Bison.

Even so, I reckon the F10 BMW 5 Series’ special package still seems tailored for itself rather than adapted from a different mix altogether.

I claim it to be a special styling package but the Asian company claims it to be a genuine aerodynamic package that has genuine functionality.

F10 BMW 5 Series rides on Forgiato Wheels

If the automotive industry is our wife, the tuning scene is that mistress we keep on the side. Much like in real life, there are limitations.

The first one needs to be somewhat restrained and grown up. Even if you want it to tickle certain parts on sight, she still needs to raise your children and you have to introduce her to your family.

The mistress on the other hand can be as young and wild as you want (or is legally acceptable) or as kinky as anyone of your friends can imagine.

Prior Design does the BMW 5 Series

Since we took a proper look at the body kit Prior Design offers for the BMW M6, we came across the spread they put out for the 5 Series.

The F10 BMW 5 Series gets another piece of great Prior Design work and looks great. It looks great in the same way the standard car does.

Every line and every detail of the lower body kit is beautifully done yet it features something different from what you’d expect.
