The BMW 530i gets a cosmetic upgrade and how! When the seventh generation was launched in June 2017, the sedan was offered only with the SportLine trim. The 530i now is offered with the M Sport trim as well.
The BMW 530i is offered with door sill finishers in aluminum and is illuminated with Sport Line designation, tailpipe finishers in black chrome, window recess covers and finishers for window frames in sanitized aluminum, a rearview camera, and 18 inches double spoke alloy wheels.
The M Sport Package features larger air vent in the front bumper, a dual tone rear bumper, and rectangular exhaust tips. In addition, the sedan is equipped with adaptive LED headlights, LED fog lamps, a glass roof, and 18 inch M Light Alloy Double Spoke wheels. There is also the M Aerodynamics package with a front apron, side skirts, and rear apron.
There are cosmetic upgrades to the interiors too! Interior trim finishers in fine-wood with pearl chrome highlights, sporty seats, leather Dakota upholstery, a 2-zone automatic climate control, a touch screen infotainment system with gesture control, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay connectivity, and the BMW Apps.
