     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just over a week out from the Global Release of the M5 Competition Package. May 8th my contact in Munich has informed me.

Background. I have one on order. I didn't want to post this information until my dealer called and confirmed a date to finalise my order. Now after weeks of calling, pushing and just being plain annoying all the information from each contact is now coherent -BMW Australia, Munich and my Dealer.

Details I know so far...

Global Specification:
  • Power up 19kW (+25hp) 460kW
  • 0-100km/h 3.3 seconds
  • 0-200km/h 10.8 seconds
  • 305km/h top speed with m drivers package
  • Sports Exhaust** with competition specific tuning (more cracks and louder)
  • Revised Suspension (lowered and firmer in sports/+ settings)
  • Y-Spoke 789M wheel
  • Black Badging, including "competition" under rear M5 logo
  • Black front and side grills
  • Blacked out lower portion of rear bumper (around diffuser)
  • High gloss rear boot lip in black
  • M Carbon Engine Cover
  • Competition door trims

**The Sports Exhaust is not the full titanium exhaust
*Carbon Ceramic Brakes are not included


Performance details now leaked on the BMW Germany website:

https://www.bmw.de/de/neufahrzeuge/m...nen-blick.html

Website currently taken down

The price. I know majority of the people reading this are not from Australia. If you are, fantastic, I can give you a price to the dollar. $229k before on roads (Australian Dollars). But again, most of you this means nothing. I can say, the price is almost identical to the last competition package on the last generation F10. Given this US customers can expect the price to be similar to the last comp pack.

As per my last post production begins in July. Deliveries begin in September.

Australian buyers will see quite a few extra options standard with the package including the Bowers & Wilkins diamond surround sound system.

Per Marius16, here's the F90 M5 Competition with Y-Spoke 789M wheels:

Too bad. Weight reduction is so important with this car. Ceramic brakes and Titanium exhaust are two of the top items needed in any competition version. Oh well, I guess I don't have to wait for this release.

May I ask what you were expecting when the E63s is it's direct competitor?

It might be lighter. These are the specs I know so far.

Since deliveries begin in September, does this mean they will release as 2019 models?

Cool thanks. Looks like the mirror caps are black too and the chrome accents on the door handles are gone.

CCB are an ~$8500 USD option that are only beneficial for repeated/multiple lap track use. Many people will be glad they aren't standard.
