BMW 530i M Sport Dark Shadow Edition Launched Locally

Only 36 of these limited-run black-themed BMW 5 Series will be available in Malaysia. 

To those who wish for their 5 series to be a little bit more black, and a little bit more menacing, BMW Malaysia may have just the thing for you now with the recent launch of the 530i M Sport Dark Shadow Edition. 

According to BMW, this particular limited run 5 series supposedly ‘sees aesthetic athleticism and driving pleasure converge in a striking, sophisticated all-black finish’. Reading past the all the marketing fluff however, this Dark Shadow Edition is essentially a 530i M Sport with some additional black trinkets. 

To that end, these additional dark-themed visual enhancements includes the exclusive Carbon Black exterior paint colour, along with the Shadow Line Part which brings with it black window finishers and a high gloss black kidney grille. 20-inch M Performance light alloy wheels in Double-spoke style 669 M Orbitgrey cap off the exterior changes made to this Dark Shadow Edition 530i M Sport.  

Moving inside, a choice of either Black Dakota leather with blue stitching, or Cognac Dakota leather with contrast stitching could be had for this special edition BMW 5 Series. As for what is under the hood, the same 252 hp/350 Nm 2.0 litre turbocharged petrol four cylinder mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission remains unchanged from its normal 530i M Sport counterpart. 

Speaking of the normal 5 Series, priced at RM 392,800 (including sales tax), this Dark Shadow Edition 530i M Sport costs exactly RM 10k more than its normal brethren. Then again, BMW Malaysia is keen to point out that the Shadow Line trim and M Performance wheel set already totals to RM 37,000 when specified separately.

Limited to only 36 units in Malaysia, the 530i M Sport Dark Shadow Edition is exclusively available for bookings, with a RM 1,000 deposit, at the BMW Shop Online starting from the 4th of January 2021. To those who wish to view this special edition BMW before buying however, viewings are available in selected BMW dealerships nationwide. 

More information about the viewing dates allocated for each showroom, along with the BMW Balloon Financial Plan, can be found in the press release below.
