Bagged 5 Series Sedans Make the Heart Flutter
If you’re going to let your 5-series hug the Earth, there’s only one way to do it.
Ask anyone about their opinion on a specific car or modification, and with almost absolute certainty, you’ll get a different answer with each person you go to. For this instance, we’ll talk about one mod that is polarizing to say the least – slamming.
Some don’t understand it, some say it looks silly, or even “broken,” but the fact is, it’s quite popular because it looks amazing when done right. Those last two words pull up an even deeper polarization, because you could either slam a car with shorter coils, or go with bags. Grocery jokes aside, we (or at least this author) feels that an E60 deserves to be bagged. Why? Because you can get the static look you want, and keep a decent ride quality for any other time you’re on the move.
As for looks, Ben Simpson’s bagged 5-series is a great example of “done right.” His black E60 5-series sits on bags, and had a few other minor visual mods to tie the rest of it together. Blacked out grille accents and M-sport appearance package work great, and the whole car sits on chrome lipped, grey rims from a relatively little known wheel manufacturer called Viaggio.

Now, don’t get us wrong from the earlier statements made in this article. Coilover suspension systems have their uses as well. Coilover systems which have a number of ranges and adjustments would be perfectly suited on an M3 regularly used for track days. Sure, coilovers can also lower a car, but since you’re still dealing with a spring, that’s the height you’ll choose, and keep. The best part? This is just one person’s opinion on the matter, and we invite you to share yours. Have a slammed BMW? Share it with us!
