2011 BMW 5 Series M Sport Package – Click above for high-res image gallery

Through the wonder of the internet, we've been given an early glimpse at a set of M goodies for next-year's BMW 5 Series. Bimmer Today managed to get their hands on a few scanned brochure images of a long roof wearing a few fancy bits of kit, including a reworked front fascia, aggressive side skirts and tweaked rear diffuser. The scans even show a couple of extra wheel options that should be available on 2011 models. BMW has managed to up the sex appeal by slathering the parts all over a long roof 5, but we feel pretty safe in guessing that the same parts will be available on sedan models as well.

Inside, buyers opting for the M Sport package can expect a few minor changes, including a new three-spoke steering wheel, seats trimmed out in a new design and an M-branded shift knob. The photos don't say too much about what kind of performance upgrades will come along with the bolt-ons, but we would be surprised if BMW decided to stray from its tried and true formula of offering a more aggressive suspension along with the new track suit.

      I might just have to buy this to make deliveries. Screw you Ford Transit, this car is more practical because I don't have to be embarrassed about it on the weekends.

      Oh, if only I was insane enough to believe that.

      Why can't we Americans like wagons more? That looks a lot more sexier than my Jetta Sportwagen!

      5,000 rpm redline? I guess you can get your M package on a diesel, huh? That makes it even all the better for my tastes.

      I was reading Automobile Magazine (latest issue) and Jamie Kitman said that Volvo announced that it will stop selling all wagons in USA soon. I was wondering it that is the case, because that is the first time i hear it.

      Is anyone familiar?

      Woah, it really looks a lot like a big 3-series on these pictures. Which is a good thing.

      The car doesn't need this package though IMO. Looks great without it.

      Man, that looks soooo much better than that horrid X6 and 5-series GianTruck or whatever it is called. BMW is going to be behind the trend here in the US by not offering the wagon. Younger buyers are increasingly interested in wagons and 5-door hatches. Most can't afford 5-series right now, but when they can, BMW won't have the product here.

      Looks definitely handsome.

      as saddened as I am when i see a regular 5 series with m treatment, this sure looks good on the wagon!

      Sorry, this new M Sport package for the 5 series touring is a complete fail! Why would BMW produce a exterior styling kit for the 5 series that almost resembles a 3 series/m3?

      Those of you in the United States need not apply. We have decided that you don't like wagons. Look at that shiny new Gran Turismo! Isn't that better? Its kinda like those mini vans you Americans love so much!

      Ugh.

      I think this would definitely look good on the sedan whenever they do end up showing the M-Sport version.
