The F10 5-series has been in owner’s garages for just over a month, but 5POST members have already started to tinker and work on their new cars, starting with the fundamental but important oil change. With these first DIYs, we have launched our F10 5-series DIY section. So for all you weekend garage warriors, come on in to share and absorb.
We knew it wouldn’t take long for 5POST members to begin customizing their F10 5-series… and so it begins! Here are teaser shots of Lacster’s F10 with new wheels, lowering springs, grills, painted reflectors and vinyl trim. A proper photoshoot will take place Saturday, so stay tuned for more photos of this great looking F10.
Congrats to 5POST member ibimmer346 as he has managed to become our first U.S. owner of a 2011 5-series!! He managed to take delivery ahead of the official June 19 U.S. release date and has posted his first drive impressions. We look forward to seeing a flood of 5POST owners take delivery imminently!
Jeremy Clarkson has developed (rightfully so) a reputation as a bit of a sourpuss when it comes to BMWs. Thats why BMW owners take notice when he reviews a BMW favorably. And he does so very favorably in his review of the F10 BMW 535i, which he calls the "absolute best of absolutely everything we know." Pretty darn good endorsement if you ask us.
Here are exterior and interior photos of the space gray 2011 535i from the floor of the BMW display at the NY International Auto Show. This represents the U.S. premiere of the F10 535i. A 2011 550i is also present, which we will cover a bit later.
Top Gear online has great things to say about the F10 535i after their test drive. Calling it a “serious return to form”, with an excellent ride, smart details and lovely quality throughout. Check out their review.
Here’s the comparison everyone wants to see. Motortrend has undertaken the battle of the titans of the mid-sized german sedan market by pitting the 2011 535i against the 2010 Mercedes E350. Was there a clear winner? Check out the review to find out.
