One of our favorite cars of the BMW display at the 2012 Paris show is this cashmere silver F11 5 series touring sitting on a set of 20″ V-Spoke Style 356 wheels in Liquid Black finish. The upsized wheels fill out the F11′s fenders very nicely and the liquid black wheels look great contrasted against cashmere silver.

The price on these 356 wheels are not for the weak-hearted however, as they are listed (MSRP) at $839 for the fronts and $865 for the rears (as listed in this recently released 6 Series accessories brochure).

The current F10 5 Series just arrived on the market in March 2010, but work has already started at BMW for the next generation 5 Series, which should come as a 2017 model.

According to BMW insider Scott26:

The next generation 5er is as I understand going through the motions of design process at the moment so they cannot give a concrete conclusion as we are still some time off from final design freeze , or the final car that will be chosen for production.

A great set of real life comparison photos between the F30 and F10, by Paul Tan.

Although the general styling of the newest 3 series and 5 series is now more consistent and shares more styling cues than the previous generation E90 and E60, there are still significant differences (in particular the front end) between the two designs as these photos highlight.

Here’s the tale of the tape for the F30 and F10:

F30
Height – 56.3 in
Length – 182.5 in
Width – 71.3 in
Wheelbase – 110.6 in

F10
Height – 57.6 in
Length – 192.8 in
Width – 73.2 in
Wheelbase – 116.8
