Hamann showcases its F10 M5 Mi5Sion at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, or what we think might be an M5

To say it’s a radical looking kit for the M5 would be an understatement. The Mi5Sion M5 receives widebody fenders that have added 30mm on each side. It has custom front and rear bumpers, carbon fiber trunk spoiler, door handles, and rear diffuser.

The interior features a contrasting black-white theme, with Alpine White and black leather seats to match the exterior and white trims throughout to continue the theme.

A rare thing happened today at the Geneva auto show. We actually managed to be surprised by the debut of a new model that had not been first teased or previewed online by its manufacturer; a rare thing these days where manufacturers typically tease, preview or reveal new models online prior to its real life debut.

Kudos to Alpina for bucking the trend and keeping a tight lid on the debut of the Alpina XD3 Bi-Turbo! On to the details:

DRIVE

The drivetrain of the XD3 Bi-Turbo utilises the excellent attributes of the BMW full aluminium 3 litre straight six cylinder engine with modern common-rail direct injection and two turbochargers with variable turbine geometry.

With the aim of further maximising the potential of this engine and using the … CONTINUED

Here’s a nice and simple F30 335i M Performance Exhaust Install DIY.

It’s not very difficult and you can save yourself hundreds of dollars (what the dealership charges). Approximate install time should be under one hour.

BIMMERPOST sponsor Alekshop has started an interesting E92 M3 build, building a US spec M3 GTS based on the BMW M3 Lime Rock Edition, which shares the same Fire Orange color with the M3 GTS. Per Alekshop:

The day BMW announced a release of the special model M3 GTS, we knew that this is the car we have to have!

After reading multiple press releases, looking at million pictures, translating technical info from German to English we gathered enough information to come up with a plan to build a US Spec M3 GTS.

Being a limited production car that was not offered in United States, we knew it will be extremely difficult to obtain the original M3 GTS parts for our project. That was a roadblock for … CONTINUED
