If you think that current 2008 BMW M5 is not sporty enough (and it doesn’t look particularly sporty to me with its plump body with a thick layer of fat covering those bulging muscles), then you may consider installing the new “M5 Sports Line” body kit from Japanese elite tuning company Wald International.
In contrast with those numerous exaggeratedly aggressive-looking body kits of European origin, Wald’s package makes the M5 look more elegant and, well, somewhat ready, if you know what I mean.
The kit, Wald International says in its press release, includes new front apron with the gaping mouth of the rear air vent opened slightly wider (Wald had to sacrifice at least a couple of inches of ground clearance to achieve its goal) integrated carbon fiber parts that are here not only for pure cosmetic purposes, but are also supposed to increase the down-force on the front axle. The package also includes new side skirts, restyled rear bumper fascia with integrated carbon fiber air diffuser and new oval-shaped exhaust tips that replace the pair of double-barrels of the original, as well as new carbon fiber deck lid spoiler.
The tuned 2008 BMW M5 sits on Wald’s Portofino forged black-painted wheels that look at least 20 inches in diameter and are wrapped in low-profile performance tires.
The Japanese company still says nothing about the kit’s price and availability in Europe and North America.
