Tribute video to the F10 M5 by BIMMERPOST member RPiM5.
Hagerty, a leading insurance provider for classic vehicles, has named the F10 M5 as a future classic. They have this to say about the F10 M5:
“A performance-oriented sedan with an old school manual transmission is quickly becoming an extinct species. While more drivers shun the thought of using three pedals, we applaud BMW for keeping this option alive in this segment.”
Have a look at a beautiful new BMW F10 M5 Competition model in Individual Tanzanite Blue with a full Cohiba Brown interior.
M5POST member RPiM5 shares with us his direct experience after six months of F10 M5 ownership, compared to his time with the E60 M5 (his car prior to the F10 M5).
Best things about the E60 M5:
1. S85 V10 engine! (with aftermarket exhaust, there’s almost no equal to the exhaust note. This is even more true if you do aftermarket headers!)
2. Smaller size of E60

BIMMERPOST shares with you our short term road test review of the 2012 BMW F10 M5, taken place over two weeks of daily driving with the M5.
Some people don’t like change. But BMW isn’t some people (or even a person), so it’s no surprise that they don’t mind change. Take the new BMW F10 M5 for instance: The mighty yet rushed 1 Series M Coupe and some M trucks aside, the new M5 is the first true M car to get a turbocharged engine. So, is it still a true M? After 14 days and roughly 2,000km in a 2012 Frozen Grey M5, I think I can give my subjective answer.
The F10 5 series is neither small nor light, and the same holds true … CONTINUED
