BMW 520i M Sport.

The BMW F10 5 Series LCI range in Malaysia has received a host of model year updates for 2016. Several exterior, interior and tech items have been added to each of the three variants without affecting their prices.

Formerly known as the BMW 520i, the new 520i M Sport now features full M Sport embellishments as part of its upgrades. On the outside, it gets the more aggressive M Sport exterior styling kit, M Sport badges and a set of 18-inch Style 613M alloy wheels (previously non-M Sport design).

Inside, the treatment continues with a new M Sport steering wheel with paddle shifters and sports seats up front, along with a black headliner and aluminium trim pieces. The car appears identical to the existing 528i M Sport in all other areas, save for the updated iDrive which now features BMW’s recently-introduced ConnectedDrive with Concierge Service. Thanks to EEV incentives, it’s priced at RM329,800 (OTR without insurance).

The BMW 528i M Sport, meanwhile, gets a larger set of 19-inch, Style 351M alloy wheels – an upgrade from the previous 18-inch items (now on the 520i M Sport). Other new items include a boot lid spoiler, a sunroof and the updated iDrive system which adds the ConnectedDrive with Concierge Service. Price is RM378,800, with EEV incentives.
