A bright yellow probably wouldn’t be our first choice of BMW Individual colors for an M5, but if you’re trying to get noticed in Qatar, where chrome wrapped cars are not out of place, this color choice makes more sense.
The exact color is Atacama Yellow, which was first introduced on the Limited Edition Design Pure Impulse Z4 for the UK.
We’ve seen Atacama Yellow on several other BMW models since: http://www.bimmerpost.com/?s=atacama
Perhaps this tree overcelebrated Arbor Day a couple of days early, fell over, and crushed this poor unsuspecting F10 M5.
We have added a second video clip featuring the upcoming BMW M Performance Exhaust for the BMW M5 (F10).
We were on hand to have a look at the BMW M Performance Exhaust for the F10 M5 and we’re excited to provide our members with the first look, listen and details of this upcoming exhaust system.
The M5 M Performance Exhaust system is titanium construction, 12 feet in length and 33 pounds lighter than the factory M5 exhaust. It will come in two versions – one with titanium steel tips (as pictured below) and a carbon fiber tip version. The titanium tips feature an M engraving and we imagine the carbon fiber may also feature some graphic or emblem. The M5 M Performance Exhaust will of course maintain the car’s factory warranty when it becomes late this year. The M6 will also be receiving the … CONTINUED

Journal for the M5POST M5 Euro Delivery owners reunion at the 2 Day M Performance School.
We have spied a new F10 M5 LCI mule and it showcases some new design elements. Seen for the first time on the M5 are double slatted kidney grilles (a la the M6). Like the M6, the F10 M5 LCI will also feature an M5 badge on the grilles, which is covered under black tape but can be seen on this mule’s grilles.
This M5 wears new style wheels, in black, which look great set off against the gold M carbon ceramic brakes. Also seen are the optional LED headlights with squared off corona rings.
The rest of the exterior look to only receive very minor updates, with the biggest change coming to the area on the front fascia under camouflage tape. That change can be seen … CONTINUED
Great side by side comparison video of various F10 M5 aftermarket exhausts – 3D Design rears, Akrapovic Evo, Eisenmann Sport rears, and Meisterschaft Super Light GT w/LXR centers.
Cold start, idle, and rev action! A little something for everybody, be it rears only, full system, valved, or not.
