Why are there so many inline-6 comments? The 550i is a turbo V8.

Here is a link where you can see the 550i F10 accelerating from 0 to 250 km/h. The 10.7 seconds from 0-160 km/h are really true. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0vBrXYTzvg

The 10.7 s is probably a tested number. Why you can\'t believe it?

\"give us referance that this car will do 0-160 km in 10.6\"

\"It is likely around 11.6 not 10.6\".

Tell me why do you think that it will do 11.6?The 550i get\'s the 600NM from 1500rpm-4500rpm.FACT!Like it or not.

Maybe I'm a bit too conservative (lol I'm just 19) but these new BMWs and Mercedes models aren't good-looking for me. W124, W201, W202, E39, E38, E34 were way better. The only positive thing is BMW still uses Inline 6 engines not cr#p V6 engines.

I have to agree on the most part of your comment. Those cars you mentioned all are legendary classics and I am a huge fan of these. For many reasons. They did not have annoying electronic aids and "safety" features that numb the driving experience and add so much weight to modern cars. They are proven to be great in quality and long lasting. And, most importantly, - they are cheap nowadays, even to the extent that I can actually afford to buy them.

I could talk to considerable lengths about how much I love old Mercedes, and BMW E39 and E38 happen to be my favourite types of 5-series and 7-series. But I really don't want to become short-sighted in my admiration of cars from the past. It always takes some getting-used-to when something new comes out and I want to be open minded and really hope that the new generations of cars will become as legendary as some of those mentioned above. After all - through the history cars do have a tendency to improve. Place a Benz Motorwagen and the new S-class side by side and you'll see what I mean.

I looks fine to me. I'd buy one....or wait for the M5.

I think it looks better than the previous 5 series. I didn't dislike the old 5 as much as many other people did. Hell, I'd take any 5 series.

Yep, it looks like E92 with four doors, which is not bad.

I will reserve other comments for when I see it live

The rear lights look Korean. The front and the side are good

The rear lights remind E34.

Disagree. This car is not ugly. How can it being so conservative seem ugly to you? And if you think E92 isn't ugly this can't be as well. Because it looks so similar.

Why does BMW produce only ugly cars? Every 2010 BMW are ugly (maybe the 3-er Coupé is an exception). In the 90's BMWs looked way better. The E39 was gorgeous. The E34, E36, etc were elegant and sporty.

Because the 550i GT, X6 50i and 750i (F01) have a 408 PS, 600 Nm, 4.4 liters twinturbo engine or it is a different engine?

Georg are you sure that the engine is supercharged?


User avatar

Wojtek  11y ago

It's similar to e92 - (335i version) but noticeably bigger and obviously looks definately better than previous model of e60. F10 conecting the best fatures of e92 good looking shape of lamps and large air intakes like in new 750i, but unfortunately BMW has lost agresive shark look and characteristic charm. Such a same ;-( Technically may be even more advance and faster but not remarkable. Let’s hope that new M5 will be astonishing.
