Slek Design has released the first photos of their carbon fiber aero kit for the F10 M5, which includes a carbon fiber front lip spoiler/splitter, sideskirts (side diffuser) and rear diffuser.
Alpina has revealed the specs and first full photo of its new B3, based on the F30 335i sedan.
The F30 B3 boasts more power and torque than the E90 B3, yet is more gas efficient.
The new B3 Bi-Turbo delivers 403 HP (301 kW) at 5500 RPM, paired with the ZF 8 speed automatic.
0-100kmh (0-62 mph) takes only 4 seconds.
Full specs (and photos) of the car will be revealed when it debuts at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show early next month.

Per iND provides an update on its F10 M5 project tuning car:
Development of IND’s M5 continues, and in this week’s update we find our M5 within the bowels of AMS; dyno room. Having logged over 20 hours on the dyno since the installation of a host of AMS-supplied testing and datalogging equipment, we’ve started to build a knowledge base that will help to make key decisions and allow us to take steps toward our ultimate power goal.
Our M5 was wired with a complete sensor package including:
intake air temperature sensors before and after the coolers
boost pressure sensor at the intake manifold
ambient temperature sensors
intercooler water temp pre and post intercooler

Bulgarian auto customizing company Vilner reveals their latest creations – a bespoke F10 5 series and F13 6 series coupe.
The centerpiece of the exterior customization is the matte white vinyl wrapping both cars. For the high contrast look, the 6 Series is fitted with a carbon fiber front lower apron with integrated splitters; and both cars get carbon fiber trunk spoilers, rear diffusers, black kidney grilles, and graphite/black wheels complete the contrasting look.

What they’ve done with the factory 335hp / 332lb-ft N54 engine is given it a ECU tune, modified its turbos, customized cooling system with additional secondary cooler, and replaced factory exhaust with custom titanium exhaust system. This all works to produce 514hp (521PS) and 453 lb-ft torque (614Nm) (from 2800 RPM). Top speed is 186mph.
Its transmission now has a 3.25 ratio (with 3.45 ratio available) and the 1M RS also features a locking differential with a Drexler lock, as well as a new clutch (with a racing clutch offered as an option).
The 1M RS sits on lower and stiffer club sport suspension with optional H&R lightweight stabilizer bars. Braking … CONTINUED
