RKP Carbon Fibre Front Splitters - BMW 5 Series F10 M5
The RKP F10 M5 splitters were a true labor of love. More than just an exterior accessory to enhance the look of F10 M5s all over the world, the new RKP splitters allowed us to create an idea that originated directly in the enthusiast community. Although playing a role in the creation of a new part is always exciting, taking a component from an M5 fan’s mind, creating a prototype, and finally producing a finished product has been especially rewarding.
The RKP splitters for the F10 M5 were designed to mimic BMW’s own Performance splitters for the E9x M3 chassis cars, but, with RKP’s usual attention to detail and design the base part is enhanced to respect the original body lines of the M5. Special attention was paid to the sharp crease present in the side openings of the M5 bumper, and a sweeping transition gives the splitter a complex but elegant reflection in any light.
The splitter is available in 1x1 plain weave, 2x2 twill weave, pre-painted in any color and a host of custom options. Each splitter installs to the M5 bumper with double sided tape along the top edge, and by re-using original BMW mounting hardware along the bottom for perfect fit and an extremely secure installation. The splitters are incredibly flexible and light, but are reinforced in critical mounting areas with 12k woven carbon for additional strength.
