The old saying “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it,” rings true with Hamann. Over the last decade and change, we’ve been able to almost predict how Hamann’s styling packages would look on new BMW chassis. While it may not be a bad thing, it’s worth noting that there isn’t anything groundbreaking or original (in the Hamann sense) with their newest product addition.

BMW’s newest 5-Series is a really nice revamp in our eyes, with sportier styling and a front end that doesn’t look as big and bulky as the previous generations. Taking a quick look at Hamann’s rendition however, you’d be quick to wonder if someone just retrofitted existing E90/E92/E93 parts to the new 5-Series.

Much like what we’ve seen previously, this styling package includes a front spoiler, side skirts, rear valence, rear trunk spoiler and rear roof spoiler. The style is much of the same, conservative and subtle, but just enough to add a little more design to the car.

Hamann is also offering a lowering kit which drops the car about 1.4-inches, a variety of 20-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights inserts and a stainless steel quad-tipped exhaust system (for the 550i only). Interior upgrades are also Hamann run-of-the-mill with new pedals, carbon fiber trim, and floor mats.

We certainly don’t hate what Hamann has produced yet again, but sometime we wonder if it’s time that they change it up just a bit. Hopefully their full bumper replacements will be something a little different. We’ll stay tuned.
