Reviews of the 2011 550i (F10) are now rolling in. Motortrend is one of the first to get some review time in a 550i and they are impressed with the 550i, calling it “better in every way” than previous generation 5-series.
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.
We have updated our Official F10 5-series info thread with new info, reviews, pricing, photo threads, ordering info, and more! The info thread will be continually updated throughout the F10 5-series model’s life.
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
Fifth Gear online has reviewed the F10 5-series and HIGHLY RECOMMENDS the newest 5-series. The folks at Fifth Gear say that the car is brilliant in many ways. It’s a joy to drive with fantastic handling and a much improved ride, and an improved elegant interior.
The 2011 F10 550i has now made its Canadian debut at the Vancouver autoshow. Shown in a space gray color, this marks the first time that the 550i has been shown in a color other than Sophisto Gray (Dark Graphite Metallic) as seen in the U.S. debut photos.
Many of our 5POST members have been wondering what exactly makes the F10′s suspension and handling so frequently praised. This interview with Jos van As, lead of the F10 chassis and suspension tuning team, provides some great insight!
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.
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.
