On the front grid, which is broader and lower than previously, the external modifications of the 5-series facelift are centered. It also has a new one-frame design with a center chrome element and sits inside the reprofiled front stroke. The bigger grill gels are extremely good with new lighting, included in the higher versions of M Sport with BMW’s Laserlight technology. The headlights are fitted with quad LED beams, daylight-shaped L lights, and outer borders indicators.
In addition, the facelift is highly organized – comparable in design to the current three-series – as well as a reworked rear bumper.
The exterior alterations of the 5-series facelift are central to the front grid, which is wider and lower than previously. It also features a new single-frame design with a chrome accent in the middle and sits inside the refreshed front pulse.
