Even though the changes are minor, the 2018 BMW M5 still receives some tweaks that differentiate itself from a regular 5 Series.

Up front, enlarger air intakes now come with a double-louvre grille with “M5” badging. At the side, filling the bigger arches is a selection of new stylish alloy wheels with wider tires. In addition, air breather vents are also repositioned. At the rear are quad exhausts, a bootlid spoiler, black rear diffuser and a sportier rear bumper.
