With the 5-Series GT’s fading sales - not that they were extravagant in the past - BMW has long considered putting the vehicle out of its misery. At one time though, the company had big plans for their sports activity vehicle. BMW expected to sell 4,000 to 8,000 GTs annually, but they ended up only selling 2,848 units in 2010 and may sell up to 2,160 units in 2011. However, it would be a shame if they sent it away without so much as a last fighting chance. Enter the BMW 5-Series GT M-Sport Package.

The upgraded 5-Series GT will benefit from the usual array of M-Sport package accessories, including dark chrome tailpipes, a lowered M Sport suspension, and a new set of 19-inch V-spoke M alloy wheels. The interior will see new sports seats upholstered in fabric Alcantara, an M leather steering wheel, an M driver’s footrest, M door sill finishers, Palladium Grey interior trim strips, and a BMW Individual roof lining in anthracite.

The 5-Series GT may be fading off into the distance, but BMW will be making its last half-hearted attempt to make it great with sales starting in late Fall 2011. We’re not quite sure it will make a difference - we think the hatchback will need much more than the random added accessories - but sometimes it’s the thought that counts.

Well, I hope that they would get the success that they were longing for this vehicle. However, I must say that I’m still not impressed on this package. It is as yet like its earlier model.

Simple but I still love the exclusivity of this vehicle. However, I am hoping that they will use an efficient engine for this sedan and also have a cozy and comfortable interior.

It maybe looks so simple, but I’m still impressed with it for the fact that it is so reliable on the road and very practical to use for everyday transportation.

It maybe looks so simple and common because of its platform and to its other detailing, but I’m still very impressed with this in the fact that it is so practical to use for everyday transportation.

I simply love this BMW 5-series for having a decent platform and to its other detailing. I just only hope that the interior of this one can also offer a striking and impressive interior feature.

It maybe looks very the same on their other cars, but I must say that I would still prefer to have this M-Sport Package of BMW, for it had a very decent appearance. I just hope that they will use an impressive engine on this one.

Sadly, to say, I always find BMW cars had the same platform and even on the other detailing of their cars. However, I’m glad that this GT M-Sport Package of them is still reliable on the road.
