More goodies in conjunction with BMW’s centenary celebrations this year. BMW Group Malaysia has introduced the 528i M Performance Edition, an uprated version of its regular 528i Sedan.
Limited to just 100 units, these exclusive cars are fitted with an enhanced M Performance Aerodynamics package that consist of a front splitter, rear spoiler, and side skirts all made of carbon fibre. Further emphasizing the vehicle’s added sportiness is the darkening of its otherwise chromed double kidney grille.
The M Performance Aerodynamics package comes in addition to the already standard M Sport package that has been with the 528i in our market since as far back as 2011, when the variant was powered by BMW’s previous-generation 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine.
All variants of the BMW 5 Series in Malaysia are powered by 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines. The 528i gets the most powerful state of tune, pushing out 245hp and 350Nm to the rear wheels via ZF’s 8HP 8-speed automatic transmission.
Currently, BMW offers the entire F10 range in Malaysia, consisting of the 520d, 520i, and 528i, in M Sport specification as standard. This upgrade in specification came in conjunction with BMW being granted EEV certification for all locally-assembled variants of the 5 Series in April.
Despite the added kit, the 528i M Performance Edition is actually selling for less money than the regular 528i M Sport, being priced at RM363,800 on-the-road without insurance.
Like all BMW models sold officially in Malaysia, the 528i M Performance Edition enjoys the coverage of 5-year unlimited mileage warranty, 5-year free maintenance, and 2-year tyre warranty.
Other variants of the 5 Series are priced as follows:
