BMW has released a range of BMW Performance products for the facelifted E70 BMW X5. Just as a recap, BMW Performance is a label for accessories that BMW sells to spice up its cars, in efforts to take some of that (mostly aesthetic) aftermarket mod spending away from other tuners. BMW Performance bodykits look different from the M-Sport bodykits and are often more aggressive-looking. In Malaysia if you see an E90 it could carry one of three sets of bumpers – standard, M-Sport and BMW Performance.

Anyway back to the BMW Performance parts for the X5. There’s now a BMW Performance Aero Kit for the X5, which BMW claims was developed in BMW’s wind tunnel in Munich.

It can be fitted to the 2011 X5 LCI, except for the X5 M and X5 models equipped with a trailer hitch. It includes redesigned front and rear bumpers as well as side skirts and an optional black kidney grille.

On the interior there’s a BMW Performance Aluminium Pedal Kit which is made of aluminum with rubber inserts. And there’s a direct replacement for the steering wheel which has a thick flat-bottom rim covered in hand-stitched Alcantara.

This steering wheel can be fitted to any facelift X5 except for the X5 M and Land Departure Warning equipped regular X5s.
