Along with the 5 Series, BMW's M performance division has also had a go at freshening up to high-power BMW M5. Most noticeable is the aggressive new face with takes the same sharper Laser lighting from the standard 5 along with the larger grille. In the M5, this is finished in black detailing which is also found in the reworked front bumper. The new rear lamps also get black surrounds while the rear bumper with the black apron around the quad tailpipes has been changed.

The Competition also sits 7mm lower and gets larger 20-inch wheels.
