Not much camoflage remains on the F11 5-series touring/wagon, which gives us these clear peeks at how great titanium silver looks on the F11. The world debut of the F11 touring is expected to occur at the 2010 Paris Auto Show.
German and Russian tuning houses are joining efforts to create bodykit and tuning packages for the F10 5-series. Full set of renderings inside. TopCar and Cardi are the russian tuners and Lumma Design is the german tuner. Their renderings show an aggressive front end package including a new front bumper aggressively sculpted with huge air inlets, carbon fiber front lip, LED lighting and honeycomb grill.
One version of the kit also features super wide wheel fenders and aggressive side skirts. The rear features a carbon fiber rear trunk spoiler, together with carbon fiber rear diffuser, quad exhaust pipes. Two types of wheel options will be available.
This custom F10 5-series is expected to debut in April … CONTINUED
The F10 5-series is now available for online configuration on the bmw.de German website! Spec out your F10 and see it in all possible color combinations (interior and exterior).
The official catalog for the F10 5-series is now available, which lists all standard and optional equipment, as well as some eye candy photos. Excellent reading for the weekend!
The F10 has certainly been making the rounds through the automotive press and AutoExpress was smart enough to take the car into the studio and get these awesome shots of the car in its more pure form. Take a peek!
Ever since the F10 was officially unveiled to the world, the F11 has had most of its camo removed, for good reason. The shape and look of the car is known at this point. What is left is for BMW to put the finishing touches to the car and finish up testing in time for the official world premier of this car, later in the year in Paris.
The look of the touring/wagon (f11) compliments the sedan version nicely and goes for the ultra modern and sleek look. The rear end flows with the front nicely, and tapers in a smooth shape which will look more Dodge Magnum then Volvo wagon when all is said and done. This is a good thing!

The eternal battle…. Now in its 5th generation the all new F10 5-Series goes head to head with the newly released Mercedes Benz E-Class. These comparisons have always been made, but now with a new sense of speed. Courtesy of the german language magazine http://www.autobild.de we now have a head-to-head photoshoot and comparison of the two cars. In this case, they decided to compare the popular Mercedes Benz E350 CDI vs. BMW 530d. Both cars being elegant yet very powerful diesel powered cars.
Included here is the photo set, but please make sure to read the full writeup @autobild: http://www.autobild.de/artikel/vergl…i_1020073.html

The new F11 aka the 5-Series touring (wagon) seen here in a basicly de-camod state reveals that the midsize BMW wagon will continue with the tried in true format now packaged under the F10 style skin.
The car is elegant as it is sporty and clearly places an emphasis on style over absolute load lugging capacity (after all, thats what the GT is for right?..).
Engine offerings should be similar to the F10 Sedan which range from a 2.0d (in europe) all the way up to the firebreathing 550i V8.
The sedan is expected to arrive in dealerships this Spring, so I would guess this car will arrive shortly thereafter, possibly in … CONTINUED
