It is a well-known fact that cars like the BMW M3 and the larger M5 are so perfect that they are nearly impossible to make any better. That’s about as perfect a sports sedan can be. You could toss in a custom cat-back exhaust, new mufflers and larger wheels and that is about it. Going any further with engine mods will ruin the fun of owning a BMW M-series.
You can, however, add on an aftermarket body kit, if you like, and give the M5 a little extra style.
Vorsteiner, a California-based tuner, has an upgrade kit that can help make your M5 stand out. The company has just released aero mods for the 2014 BMW M5 . The kit includes a front carbon-fiber spoiler and a rear diffuser both of which are cured in an Autoclave for increased strength and durability. The carbon-fiber composites are treated with a four-stage, UV-inhibiting clear lacquer coating.
Vorsteiner also offers unique 19-, 20-, 21- or 22-inch wheels with widths ranging from 8.5 to 13 inches, and a cat-back exhaust for the F10 BMW M5. You also get a couple of Vorsteiner badges and other minor exterior modifications.
Aside from the cat-back exhaust, there are no other engine mods to speak of on this Vorsteiner-modified M5.

2014 F10 BMW M5
For 2014, BMW has updated the F10 generation M5 with a set of all-LED headlights and an optional competition package. The LCI facelift , as it is called, also includes a new twin-kidney grille element. Under the skin, the rest of the car remains the same. Powered by a twin-turbocharged V-8, the F10 M5 ’s engine puts out a meaty 560 horsepower which insiders claim, can propel the four-door sedan to almost 200 mph. Sadly, BMW limit the M5 to 155 mph.
With the optional Competition Package , you get 15 more horsepower and M-Ceramic brakes. BMW claims to have fiddled with the suspension of the car for a more aggressive ride and handling dynamics. Full LED headlights are optional but you do get M lightweight alloy wheels. The new on-board iDrive infotainment system can be operated via an optional Touch Controller.
