BMW 5 Series by Hamann – Click above for high-res image gallery

The waiting game. A new round ensues for enthusiasts every time an automaker like BMW unveils a new product, a four-door sedan, especially. In the case of the 5 Series, what we're eagerly anticipating is the new M5. In the meantime, BMW has released its own line of M-Sport accessories and Alpina has joined the party with the new B5 Bi-Turbo. Now German tuning house Hamann has entered the fold with its own equipment list for the mid-size Bimmer.

The package consists of a new body kit, complete with a new front bumper incorporating an adjustable front lip spoiler and daytime running LEDs, side skirts, rear apron and diffuser and a pair of spoilers, along with 21-inch matte black alloys with contrasting polished rims, a 35-milimeter dropped suspension and a four-tip exhaust system. Carbon fiber and aluminum accessories are available for the interior, though details on Hamann's engine upgrade program have yet to be revealed. In the meantime you can check it out in the high-resolution image gallery below.

      Funny how these baller cars always have the same black wheels with the shiny rims. You'd think they'd have moved on by now.

        It has rims? Oh yeah - didn't notice with what surrounds them. Beautiful. A work of art. BMW still does timeless designs.

        @dave: yeah, the new 5 is starting to grow on me, too, though I still think looks a little bit too soft (I still prefer the harder look of the E60). The tuner bodykits like Hamann do a good job of addressing this, as they're not catering to the suburban moms.

      No matter how much I try, I still can't find anything this company does to improve in any way on the stock car. If anything, it makes it worse. I think companies like Hartge and Sportec have much nicer minimalist designs. I remember when I was in England last year, we went to one of the aftermarket auto shows there and they had several Hamann BMWs on display and one of their representatives was reading off specs...........basically, for about 20 grand, you got an average of about 3/10s of a second and pulled 97g instead of 96g for the M3, according to their numbers. He said what you were really buying was a styling statement, not just performance.

      I second the wack rim job! and crappy deck spoiler. everthing else is ok i guess till we see somebody elses design . But I will say this new 5 is a home run !!! I also saw it in person SWEET!!!!!!

      This looks GREAT, except...

      - Lose the rear deck-lid spoiler. It doesn't look good or functional

      - By preference of taste, lose or keep the upper spoiler. Meh, I guess it could stay

      - PLEASE STOP the black with the chrome lip rims!!! Really, any color with a chrome lip for that matter, needs to be destroyed. That trend was cool for all of the first 5 minutes I saw them on a car. Then it faded even faster, when EVERY tuner tuner car/EVERY rapper car/EVERY athlete car carried the same trend. D@mn, do you people have a mind of your OWN, or are you just FOREVER destined to make your aesthetic tuning choices based on what someone else is doing?! If you're gonna do that, at least choose an aesthetic thats timeless. Hint: These choices tend not to be trends.

      Man, this is why I can't wait to establish my own Design/Tuning firm! I'll put an end to all these whack-@ss design trends, and have a timeless aesthetic.
