This is BMW Malaysia’s latest limited edition run for the F10 5 Series LCI. It’s called the BMW 528i M Performance Edition and it’s currently on display at a roadshow at Paradigm Mall, but we snapped these photos at Auto Bavaria Glenmarie where it’s on show as well.
The car is limited to 100 units and is priced at RM363,800, a full RM15,000 less than the regular pricing for the 528i. It comes with bits from the M Performance aesthetics catalog – gloss black kidney grilles, a carbon fibre front splitter, black side skirts with M Performance badging and a carbon fibre bootlid spoiler.
Other than that, equipment is the same as a regular 528i, which was recently updated in March 2016 to include a bit more specs. Standard kit now includes adaptive LED headlights, 19-inch Style 351M wheels, sunroof, four-zone climate control, keyless entry, a head-up display, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system and the updated iDrive system with ConnectedDrive and Concierge Service.
Powered by a 2.0 litre TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine, the 528i makes 245 hp and 350 Nm, all sent to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. Zero to 100 km/h is done and dusted in 6.2 seconds, and the car will go all the way to 250 km/h.
As usual, that price is inclusive of a five-year, unlimited-mileage warranty and five-year free service.
