Five-series buyers wanting the M5 look for half the price can now pick BMW’s new Sport pack. Available on all models, prices start at £29,550 for a 520i Sport saloon (£3450 over the standard car), rising to £46,525 for a 545i Sport Touring estate.

The Sport kit comprises an M5-influenced bodykit, with wider air intake, new bumpers and front valance, side sills, dechromed windows and 18in alloy wheels. Recalibrated dampers and stiffer springs improve handling. Inside, Sport models gain half-leather seats, electric sports seats, aluminium trim and M-Sport multi-function wheel.
