At the interior, people from Hartge decided to come with aluminum pedals, leather trims together with a new leather steering wheel and Hartge logos. New floor mats offered in various colors are available for the Hartge tuning kit.
At the exterior, the Hartge BMW X1 stands out by some large 20-inch Classic 2 rims with ten spokes. The new suspension kit available for the Bavarian SUV manages to increase the aggressiveness of the model by lowering the ground clearance with 30 mm.
At the beginning of August we talked about the new tuning kit by LUMMA Design for the BMW 7 Series. Though at the time not much information was available, we now have the follow-up for that piece of news, as LUMMA Design has offered more info and pictures to boot.
The BMW E92 M3 model got a serious visual upgrade from the RENM tuning company. Named the “Agitator”, it will surely stir up those that will have the opportunity to set their eyes on it. But the RENM M3 Agitator doesn’t bring just new looks into play, but also increased performance, for a complete package.
The coupe version of the next-generation 6 Series, codenamed F12, was caught in these spy shots while was tested by the German drivers at BMW. The new 6 Series generation expected to enter the market somewhere in 2011 is based on the current BMW’s 5 Series F10 generation but got slighty bigger dimensions comparing to the actual generation that is about to make room for the model in photos.
G-Power is a well-known name when it comes to tuning. Probably this is not the first time when you hear about the Germans. Actually, they created the fastest sedan in the world. And it’s a BMW! G-Power M5 E60 Hurricane RR managed to set the record held by G-Power M5 E60 Hurricane RS, the first one coming with extra 50 horsepower, reaching 800 horses, thus, it became the fastest sedan in the world.
This time, there isn’t any sedan. The model picked by the German tuners is the M performance version of the BMW’s X5. The G-Power X5 M Typhoon is able to deliver a total amount of 725 horsepower while the torque level reaches 890 Nm.
At 555 hp and 680 Nm of torque and being capable of reaching 170 mph (275 km/h), one would be more than satisfied by the power that the BMW X6 M can supply. But there will always be people that would want more and to cater to their wishes, tuning companies will continue to bring more and more upgrades. This is the case of the M6XR from Manhart Racing.
You can’t claim that the Germans from AC Schnitzer are unknown when it comes to tuning BMW models, thus, they prepared a new tuning kit for the 2011 BMW 5 Series F10. The tuning kit comes with an additional horsepower amount for the 530d version, aesthetic touches and improved handling.
Starting with the performance improvements, because in my opinion this is the start point when creating a tuning kit, the German tuner managed through ECU recalibration and a new evacuation system to increase the 530d’s hp amount by 41 horsepower reaching 286 horsepower.
