I agree. Although it looks slapped on like the E60, the E60 side grill looks way better than the F10. On the F10, it looks like cheap like something you would find on a Chevrolet Cruze...

vaaary niiice!

I like being understated - a sleeper.

Now lets hope BMW spent enough time on the electronic steering to get some feel back in it. The normal 5 series has as much sttering feel as my playstation.

I'm a fan of understatement but this is a little too quiet for my tastes. BMW is putting the M5 squarely into executive super sedan territory (much like the RS6). That said, I suppose this isn't really different from where the M5 sat before, it just never really had the looks to go along with the classification.

I guess BMW decided that anyone who could really afford an M5 would already have something sporty in their garage anyway. I have no doubt that it will be fast as all get out but I would have liked a few more visual cues as to the car's abilities. I still like it better than the E60.

And the side vents - ugh. Maybe Pontiac was having a fire sale on leftover G8 components.

I'm pretty sure that is a carbon fiber roof. I think they can impregnate it with color or just paint in like a normal body panel.

They would probably paint it to stick with the whole understated M5 theme.

$2500 x 36 months = $90 000 in lease payments, plus about $10 000 due on signing, you've paid $100 000 already, and theres still a buyout of about $50 000 at the end. CRAZY!
It will be interesting to see what BMW does this year with pricing. Porsche has already dropped their prices twice over the past year (incentive discount at the end of 2010 and full line-up price reduction this year) to combat our strong CAN $.

If you are correct, it will make the decision to buy in the States and import it that much easier. With the 6.1% duty being offset by our dollar that may be in the $1.06-1.09 range it becomes almost a no brainer.

In terms of appearances, there's little to show that this M5 stands out significantly from a F10 with M package. Not fair to a buyer who pays a lot more for it.
