E39 M5 Tuning
Nowadays, car tuning has become not only a hobby but also an important industry. More and more car owners want to improve their car’s performance, handling and presentation.
Most vehicles are manufactured with an average driver in mind and tuning has also become a way to design the car to the owner’s preference. Some owners modify their cars with auto racing in mind. Although these performance cars can not compete, they are built for the simple pleasure of owning and driving such a car.
The BMW E39 M5 is one model that has lots of tuning options. Although the stock car is considered as one of the ultimate design in the super sedan category, some owners prefer to do some tuning to give it their personal touch. These modifications include engine, “chip” or ECU tuning to provide better fuel economy or produce more power at high RPM. In the hope of achieving better handling, the ride comfort is sometimes sacrificed. Another major function of tuning includes performance modification to the car’s exterior.
This means changing the aerodynamic characteristics of the vehicle like the side skirts, front and rear bumpers, adding spoilers, splitters, air vents and light weight wheels.
