Some of you should take the chill pill and wait for the car to come out, instead of making hasty conclusions.

the new M5 is way too important for BMW to fück it up even to the slightest degree.

M5 commands respect. It's the ultimate super sedan. BMW would have considered all the production criteria since day one of the new 5-series development. It has to be better in all aspect over the predecessor.

No way BMW will screw up.

I like those wheels. They looks like BBS FI. It would be nice if BMW offered them as an option.

It is pretty, large, and likely heavy.

I think I see dual intakes on this car...I'm wondering if it will have individual throttle bodies, a trait that the S63 engine does not have...

+1 . M Division has yet to disappoint. Obviously no one is thrilled that they are going to forced induction, but let the car come out and then we'll see what's what.

I've already decided that I don't want the next M5. When the E60 M5 came out I was blown away by its use of F1 technology. What's special about this new M5?? Its got a boring TT V8 and (most likely) an Automatic Transmission...

I am pretty sure ///M has a nice bag of tricks up its sleeves.. lets all relax and wait to see the outcome. My SMG opinions aside I think they have hit home runs so far!

Roof?

From the pics it looks like no moonroof?

Will it be a CF Roof, or just optional without moonroof?

Im test driving the 550 this weekend. I have been reading this about the new 5er. I hope it is not true.
