Following up on earlier rumors, it appears that the M tuned 5-series diesel model has been confirmed. According to Thedetroitbureau and Autoblog, BMW has confirmed that there will indeed be a new diesel F10 tuned by BMW M joining the 5-series lineup.

Despite being tuned by BMW M, the F10 diesel M will not receive the “M5″ moniker, but will instead be named along the lines of M550d, 550dM, 550dXM, or 550d xDrive M, each a bit of a clumsy name in our opinion. For what it’s … CONTINUED
