If you want a subtly upgraded BMW, you should probably be looking at an Alpina. For something a little more outlandish? That’s AC Schnitzer’s territory. This is - after all - the company that stuffed an M4 engine into an M235i and tunes it to 562bhp, just to make a sort of showpiece.

As you’d expect, then, the company’s latest range of products for the new 5-series Touring are not for the shy and retiring. We have big side skirts, an angrier front bumper, a shiny quad exhaust and spangly, arch-filling 20-inch rims. But don’t worry, 19-inch items are available if that sounds a bit much. In total, eight wheel choices are set to be available.

There range of upgrades go further than skin deep, too. For starters, AC is offering a set of lowering springs to drop the front by 25mm, and the rear by 20mm. And if you fancy more poke, the tuner has that covered too.

Have a 530d? AC Schnitzer will give it an extra 50bhp, bringing the total to 311bhp. Or if you have a 540i, you can have its 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six tickled from 335bhp to 395bhp.

Eventually, there’ll also be power upgrades for the 520d, 530i and even the M550i, not that the latter car is really wanting for power.
