BMW 5 Series: Front fenders

Air Breathers are also used on the front fenders of the G30. The Air Breather is an air outlet behind the front wheel, which diverts the air flowing into the rear region of the wheel well in a controlled manner towards the fender in order to reduce turbulences in the wheel well area. As a result, the drag and fuel consumption of the vehicle is reduced, which in turn means a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
