AutoWeekUSA has done a really nice synopsis of the upcoming F10 535i. Here are some select quotes from the full article which you can read by following the link down below. On the highway, the 535is engine is barley audible at a steady cruise. That’s because BMW geared the eight-speed automatic so high, you rarely need more than 2,000 rpm; the top gear runs a 0.667:1 ratio. The new electro-mechanical steering system with rear-wheel steer makes the 535i even more maneuverable around town than before. With optional adjustable suspension in comfort mode, the low-speed ride is sufficiently supple to soak up broken surfaces with authority.

The 2011 F10 5-series is one of the most hotly anticipated sedans in years and it shows in the many tuners that already have big plans for tuning and customizing the F10 5-series and F10 M5. Check out the F10 visions of Nowack, Lumma, Carline, Racing Dynamics, Hamann, Kerscher, and Brabham.

Time marches on and the F10 BMW M5 continues its cold weather testing ahead of its scheduled launch for 2011. To recap, this car is expected to utilize a turbo charged V8 engine derived from the motor used in the X5 and X6 M. Power outputs are still unknown but I would bet on it being higher then that of the X5/X6M. Other M5 Spy pictures can be seen here.
