+1. I've never been a fan of all black wheels. I think it looks better this way.

And finally, an ///M car has nice, branded calipers. I wonder if you'll have the option to pick the caliper color. I'd like to see them Red on a black car.

And is it the lighting, or are the badge and side-vents in shadow chrome or something?

The overall look is not even aggressive. The side grills are a joke! i have to see in-person to finalize my judgements

Looks amazing, but I'm slightly disappointed.

Considering that the F10 550i is about 350lbs heaver than the E60 M5, let us assume that the F10 M5 will be 350lbs heaver as well. That means that the E60 had a power to weight ratio of 7.89 lb/hp vs 7.88 lb/hp for the F10. With all that tq, I'm sure the F10 M5 accelerate quicker, but I'm not so sure about above 60mph.

The power figures are absolutely disappointing. *sigh*...yeah, 560 is great and it's about the handling blah blah blah, but come on! only 5 horses more than a more than one year old X6M/X5M? Pissed...at least give it 30 or 35 horses more...damn you BMW. Tuners get ready to throw this car over 700 ponies...

  • Engine bay is monsterous

560Hp is nice. I wonder how this will stack up against the RS6. I bet Audi will do 580-590 HP.
+1. Hopefully someone could do a photoshop of blacked out side vents because they still look awful IMO. Also, love the "///M" callipers! To me it makes it look more powerful/aggressive and screams "I'm a ///M bitches!" to all the other cars on the road!

You do realize that with software reprogramming alone this beast will push 700hp

So this is basically the same exact engine as the X5M?
I thought they were supposed to retune the engine for this car
