2011 5-series sightings continue throughout Germany as this Sophisto Gray F10 was just spotted in Dingolfing. Spottings will no doubt continue until the F10 5-series official public debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show next March. Pics courtesy of bimmertoday

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.
