The F10 does NOT make the E60 look outdated instantly.

The interior is a giant leap forward, though.

Pros F10:

-integrated fender grill/signals much improved over e60
-more aggressive hood
-more streamlined rear
-increased side profile character


-entire front end falls "flat" from side profile, e60 front end nicer
-side skirts leave much to be desired compared to e60
-wheels are atrocious, definitely do not belong on an M5, maybe a civic or some teenagers beater
-rear reflectors look awful, breaks up the whole rear

meh, not too impressed......also come on, no matter how many turbos you put on the v8, I would take the legendary sound of the v10......NA > turbo
Ill throw a huge +1 to everything in this post.

I've been following the development of this future M closely. That F10 M5 may get me back in a BMW.

Going to take a F10 550i out for a ride tomorrow. Going to help me decide if I put a deposit down on the future M.

My wife and I are even considering European delivery.

I feel the same way too. I really love the sound of an s85.
