The Wake of Magellan – BMW F10 M5 by PSI
When ordinary is not enough, we reach for the extraordinary. More often than not, that pursuit becomes a voyage, one filled with landmark events and above-average memories to savor for a lifetime. Our client is a family man, but wanted his family car, a new BMW F10 M5, to be unlike any other. Here at PSI, we are no stranger to pushing the limits while maintaining a pleasing aesthetic. During several conversations, we realized that it was time to look beyond the usual wheel styles and sail into unknown waters. Enter HRE Wheels, with their RS-series Street Collection.
Well aware that a mis-step can sink an otherwise fantastic build, we settled on the striking RS102M model, with their unmistakable 5-spoke design. The directional design resembles a ship’s propellers, and is impossible to ignore out on the street, while the Satin Charcoal Gray finish offsets the Sapphire Black body paint. We had the inner barrels custom painted to match the centers and lips for a seamless match. With the perfect set of wheels in place, acquiring the perfect drop was necessary, and a set of KW Variant 3 coilovers fit the bill perfectly. Their build quality and adjustment levels enable a comfortable, smooth ride on virtually any surface. Having the stance sorted, we installed an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system to add some crackling thunder and reduce weight.
To complete the look, we added a carbon fiber Vorsteiner front spoiler and rear diffuser, which enhance the elegantly aggressive appearance, while inside a complete BMW M Performance carbon fiber trim set was carefully installed. IND supplied the finishing touches in the form of gloss black front and side grilles. Our client can now get underway with dramatic style, leaving lesser vessels in his wake.
