Videos featuring the M Flight Club leaving the Hamann facility parking lot after their tour and visit. ///M Flight visited Hamann in Laupheim, Germany last weekend (6 April 2013)… They rolled there with 30 ///M’s (M3′s, M5′s, M6, X6M)… They even had an E92 ///M3 w/ G Power supercharger!
Listen to the fury as 30 of these cars pull out from the lot in a spirited fashion.
We have spied a new F10 M5 LCI mule and it showcases some new design elements. Seen for the first time on the M5 are double slatted kidney grilles (a la the M6). Like the M6, the F10 M5 LCI will also feature an M5 badge on the grilles, which is covered under black tape but can be seen on this mule’s grilles.
This M5 wears new style wheels, in black, which look great set off against the gold M carbon ceramic brakes. Also seen are the optional LED headlights with squared off corona rings.

The F10 5 Series and F10 M5 LCI refresh models are coming soon, but spy photos have shown the external styling updates will be understated, with tweaks to the upper front fascia and headlight updates (sleeker looking and with optional full LED squared-off headlights), but the M5 will receive no changes to the lower front bumper design. Like the 5 Series, the F10 M5 will also receive light updates to its tail lights and lower rear bumper.
As for the interior, the most recent 5 Series LCI spy photos show that it will be offered with the new iDrive touch system. The M5 LCI will receive the M6 steering wheel as standard.
With these changes in mind, we’ve mocked up a preview render look at the F10 … CONTINUED
