They have been pushing to make the m6 stand out more than the m5. Especially m6 gc.. but for 20K more? :-/

I think in terms of looks, this generation f10 m5 is mild. compared to the last generation. The f10 in general looks nice. I just don't feel so much of a big M presence as the M3 provides over the regular 3 and as so does the m6 with the regular 6.

Love it all the way. I can't imagine what's under the taillight camo - has anyone presented a best guess rendering yet?

I want mine with those wheels in black, just like the mule... I wouldn't mind them concave though..

I'm curious if the front transponders for the BMW LI Quad setup will fit in the new front grill.

Haha, that's first thought I had also, (and likely not)

The wheels are not visually powerful. But the kidney grills are definitely the golden touch.

The reason for this is the target customers. Majority of m3 owners are young men trying to make a statement. Majority of m6 owners are the more mature version of m3 owners. M5 owners tend to be middle aged adults who want a saloon that goes unnoticed to the untrained eye but will rip your face off when you need it to. If you want a flashy car get an m3, if you want a wolf in sheeps clothing get an m5

Man is 43 middle aged(: had a 745i at 33 so I must have broken the mold, but was married with two kids. Sill have the two kids minus the wife ......hence the M5 and 650i with 991 on the way. Mid life crisis.

I just traded my M3 for an M5. I'm 29 years old and couldn't be happier with my decision.

If the LCI F10 starts production in July, when would we see actual pics of what the changes look like (with out camo) and wether or not the 7 spoke wheels are going to be on the car?

Don't think we'll see undisguised photos until June. Any earlier and it'll slow sales of existing stock even more.

The wheels and the front grills are a nice subtle change.

I'm going to say that we'll see a fully unveiled LCI 5-Series and LCI F10 M5 next month in May. Last year BMW opened up the ordering banks for the F10 M5 for the U.S. Market in May, so a full release of the LCI would be prudent in order to allow enough time for orders to get processed for July production just as what happened with the 2013 M5.

Do you guys think the LCI will get a new front bumper? It looks like it may be only headlights and grill. If it is a new bumper, it may be a direct swap.

The part you see camouflaged are the parts that will be changed. Nothing else.

I also had these on my 540 6sp. One of the best designs BMW made!

By release, do you mean delivery? i.e. if one were to order now for delivery in June / July would it include LCI?
