The BMW X7 M50i and M50d are the Bavarian brand’s current flagship SUVs as no fully-fledged M variant has been planned. In an attempt to somewhat fill this void, dAHLer Competition Line has developed a tuning package for both engines.
The BMW X7 M50i uses a twin-turbo 4,4-litre V8 that delivers 390 kW and 750 N.m of torque to all four wheels as standard. Using an engine performance tuning module, dAHLer has been able to increase this output to 456 kW and 850 N.m of torque.
The M50d uses a 3,0-litre straight-six quad-turbodiesel that pushes 294 kW and 760 N.m in standard guise. With the same module, dAHLer has increased this to 338 kW and 870 N.m. Updated performance figures have not been provided for either package.
Joining this increase in power is a stainless steel performance exhaust system with a high-performance muffler and double exhaust flap system which claims to echo no drone on the highway. Although it boasts a more aggressive sound then the stock muffler, the firm says it’s still be perfectly livable for daily driving. The system also includes a high-flow, valve controlled, stainless-steel performance muffler and is available as a cat-back system. The piece is handcrafted from high quality 1,4301 stainless steel in Germany by a team of specialists.
For more visual presence, dAHLer also provides a set of 23-inch forged alloy wheels that are 30 to 35 per cent lighter than the standard set. If this design is too bold for your liking, you can opt for the firm’s 21-inch set. Within the cabin, a set of aluminium pedals and custom branded floor mats can be ordered.
If dAHLer’s offering for the BMW X7 M50i is not extreme enough for you, you may appreciate Manhart’s rendition which pushed the power output up to a whopping 500 kW and 820 N.m of torque.
