BMW X5 M Sport Limited Edition and no-cost M Sport deals announced

February 4, 2013

BMW Australia has packaged together complimentary M Sport deals for the 5 Series, sporty Z4, and 1 and 3 Series Coupe and Convertible, boosting value by up to $7900. A new BMW X5 M Sport Limited Edition is also being introduced.

Starting with the X5 M Sport Limited Edition, the SUV comes packed with $15,000 worth of extras, including a full M Sport bodykit, 20-inch alloy wheels, and an M Sport interior rehash.

‘Professional’ high-grade satellite navigation is standard, as are bi-xenon headlights, reverse parking cameras with top view, anti-dazzle mirrors, and beam assist for turning.

The complete kit is based on the entry-level X5 xDrive30d which comes with a 3.0-litre TwinPower turbo-diesel engine producing 180kW of power and 540Nm of torque. As previously tested, the powertrain is capable of 0-100km/h in 7.5 seconds.

In other models in the company’s lineup, BMW is offering M Sport packages at no cost for the 5 Series and Z4, as well as M Sport Plus packages for the 1 Series Coupe/Convertible and 3 Series Coupe/Convertible at no cost. The deals bring between $2500 and $7900 worth of added value.

The deals will likely make way for new or facelifted models to be introduced later this year, and are part of ‘Festival M’ promotions which will run from February 1 to March 31.

BMW says that up to 50 per cent of its vehicles are specified and optioned up with M Sport packages, proving how popular these are.

Prices for the X5 M Sport Limited Edition start at $99,900.
