Great side by side comparison video of various F10 M5 aftermarket exhausts – 3D Design rears, Akrapovic Evo, Eisenmann Sport rears, and Meisterschaft Super Light GT w/LXR centers.
Cold start, idle, and rev action! A little something for everybody, be it rears only, full system, valved, or not.
Watch as a tuned F10 M5 belonging to M5POST member Niko1414 takes on various cars at the latest Airstrip Attack races.
The races featured in the videos are against a CLS 63, 997 Turbo, C63, and Lamborghini LP560.
Watch and listen to some super sedans blasting around the ring, in a great back-to-back listen of some of BMW’s most exciting current and future M models – the F80 M3, E90 M3 CRT, F10 M5.
On May 11, 2013, BMW Performance Driving Instructor Johan Schwartz will have a go at beating the Guinness Book of World Record for the world’s longest drift, while driving one of the BMW Performance Center’s M school cars – a F10 M5.
The attempt will be made on the BMW Performance Center skid pad – the same one used to teach skid techniques at the BMW driving schools. And the factory M5 is one of the most fitting BMW models for this attempt, as its 560hp and 502 lb-ft torque easily breaks the rear end traction of the RWD sedan loose.
The current world’s longest drift record which Schwartz have to beat is 19,035 feet (nearly 3.6 miles), set Sept. 30, 2011 in China.

Per iND provides an update on its F10 M5 project tuning car:
Development of IND’s M5 continues, and in this week’s update we find our M5 within the bowels of AMS; dyno room. Having logged over 20 hours on the dyno since the installation of a host of AMS-supplied testing and datalogging equipment, we’ve started to build a knowledge base that will help to make key decisions and allow us to take steps toward our ultimate power goal.
Our M5 was wired with a complete sensor package including:
intake air temperature sensors before and after the coolers
boost pressure sensor at the intake manifold
ambient temperature sensors
intercooler water temp pre and post intercooler
Car and Driver sets some great M5 and M6 drifting to slow motion action and music in this hypnotic compilation from their recent shootout test.
Video of the Hamann exhaust system for the F10 M5. Together with its ECU software tune, it bumps the M5′s power to 720hp and 900Nm (664 lb/ft) of torque.
A few M5POST members gathered over the new years eve weekend for some socializing, driving, and exhaust sound-off.
Check out the photos and video footage from the gathering and listen as the F10 M5 shows off the Eisenmann Sport, Eisenmann Race, and RPi GT exhaust systems.
Car and Driver shares their comparison pitting the F10 M5 versus the F13 M6 at the Anglesey Circuit in the UK to see if the M6 is truly better at the track than the M5, as advertised.
The M5 and M6 share the same 560hp powertrain, but the M6 is billed as being even more suited for the track with its lighter weight (about 100 pounds), lower center of gravity (due to lighter carbon roof and lower roofline) and slighter faster acceleration (about a tenth of second faster to 0-60, at 4.1 seconds).
Check out the real world results and differences on the track.
