Here is the best F10 5-series video we’ve seen besides BMW’s own official videos. Featuring some nice visual/audio effects a la Top Gear, the video shows off the stunning 2011 550i nicely, with some humor thrown in. Somewhat surprising is the fact that it’s produced by a BMW dealership – BMW of Alexandria. Make sure to check it out.

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.

Some forum members have criticized the look of the new F10 5-series with smaller wheels and even the sport wheels that are on the 550i. But, these photos by PoleApart showoff how great the F10 can look without going to aftermarket wheels. Pictured on this F10 are the 20" BMW Style 312 wheels in a ferric gray finish. Stunning, in our opinion

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.

Which? consumer test magazine had a chance to test both the F10 535i and 530d. While calling the 530d massively competent and refined, the testers still preferred the 535i, which encouraged a more enthusiastic driving experience. Either way, they felt the F10 stacks up impressively well on performance and refinement against current rivals, including the Mercedes E- class and aging Audi A6.
