COMMENTS

It's always a fun exercise to compare a just announced BMW model against its predecessor. It puts into perspective how much technology, engineering, and design has progressed in the 6-7 years since the last model. Here, we compare the F10 M5 (full official info) against the E60 M5 in the styling and performance departments.

Also see our other F10 M5 comparos:
F10 M5 versus Mercedes E63 AMG and Cadillac CTS-V
F10 M5 versus Porsche Panamera Turbo/S and Jaguar XF-R

I wish they had used two slats on the side marker for the f10 like e60, but I think the new one blows the old out of the water.

Am I the only one that doesn't hate the E60? New one looks better, but I don't like how it's bigger. Interior is definitely better looking.

I like interior the best. Everything is in proportion. Reflectors on ass need off.

Other brands have crazy interior style with big ass vents to fill empty dash space.

E60 for sure! the front of the f10 just isn't harmonious, there is no symmetry at all in the front but I like the back of the F10 very aggressive and very wide stance almost as wide as the E60 M5 version in standard form. I can't imagine how much wider the F10 M5 must be since it has 295 sections in the rear compared to the 285 standard on the E60 M5.

I prefer the side profile and the fender grill design of the E60, but in all other areas the new car looks better. The new interior is really well designed.

Definitely loving the new F10, they did a great job. With that said, the E60 M5 still looks great and I would still thoroughly enjoy the V10

Exactly, these fools are arguing about NA this and NA that. That's great and all until the F10 comes and runs away with the massive amount of TQ it has down low. If you wanna be pure and NA (and all other types of nonsense) consider getting a car that is much lighter and was engineered to be originally with a 6 speed manual.
