The F10 5-series recently debuted in Asia at a launch event gala held in Hong Kong. This particular F10 launch event appears to be the fanciest one yet, including musical and artistic performances and celebrity appearances. Even the F10 models on hand were the most decked out, with more wheel variety and some accessory parts.
Thanks for pinguhk for sharing the photos.
Techno Classica Essen
This past weekend I went to Essen (Germany) to go see the Techno Classica Essen. It is a very cool and eccentric classic car show. I saw some really cool cars and a ton of memorabilia and collectables. I have been wanting to go to this event ever since I heard about it way, way back when! I am glad I went!

Here is the new BMW F11 Touring as it debuted @ the AMI Leipzig. On display was the 535i in Imperial Blue, 530d in Tasman Green with optional accessories and the 520d.
Those of us who have seen (or will see) the BMWs at the New York Autoshow have apparently been viewing replacement cars and missing other cars scheduled to be shown. 6 BMWs were stolen in 3 separate heists from a NJ processing center and a private facility – a sophisto gray 550i, 535xi, 650i, 750LXI.
The 2011 F10 550i has now made its Canadian debut at the Vancouver autoshow. Shown in a space gray color, this marks the first time that the 550i has been shown in a color other than Sophisto Gray (Dark Graphite Metallic) as seen in the U.S. debut photos.
The 400+ horsepower twin-turbo V8 2011 550i (F10) (all details here) made its U.S. debut today at the 2010 NY Int’l Auto Show. It made its appearance in style by being driven into the spotlight during the press conference. Sophisto gray is a hard color to capture, but we think we’ve got some pretty good representations of it in our photos.
Here are exterior and interior photos of E92 335is coupe world debut today at the 2010 NY International Auto Show. See here for 335is official specs. The 335is was truly a stunner in person! Hopefully it shows in the photos.

The focus of the BMW display at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show was definitely the F10 5-series, 4 of which were featured front and center. Here is a collection of all our F10 5-series photos from the 2010 Geneva Motor Show, including the ActiveHybrid concept, a white F10, and a space gray F10.

Still photos are great, but nothing gives a better impression than walking around a car and seeing it in person. We’ve brought this to your desktop with a video walk-around of the M3 ZCP Competition package model now at the Geneva Motor Show. Enjoy.
The M3 ZCP Competition model has been spotted at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show! This Monte Carlo M3 ZCP looks stunning in the dark room with dramatic overhead lighting, room soundtrack, and wall graphics.

Power has been bumped up to 400hp / 397lb-ft tq and the car has been fitted with some beautiful aero parts and a stunning interior. Check out the B3 S and the other Alpinas present inside.

Before this morning’s BMW Press Conference came and went, we had already accepted the sad fact that no BMW M1 concept would be making a surprise appearance. So why no M1 appearance? If a certain insider is to be believed, it’s because a higher-up at BMW recently drove and was disappointed by the M1 prototype, and has requested changes which the M1 concept is currently undergoing. Another reason is supposedly that BMW wishes to concentrate its marketing on products coming to market sooner than the M1 … CONTINUED
