Press release

The M Sports Package for the new BMW 5 Series Saloon and for the new BMW 5 Series Touring will be presented simultaneously in September 2010. The package, which was developed by the BMW M GmbH, comprises components that have been specifically adapted to match the suspension, the aerodynamics, and the exterior and interior design of each model. The M sports suspension, M aerodynamics package and 18-inch M light alloys featuring a double spoke design contribute towards enhanced driving dynamics and an exceptionally powerful appearance. Moreover, optionally available features include 19-inch M light alloys as well as an M rear spoiler for the saloon.

Sports seats featuring Alcantara / fabric upholstery especially developed for the M Sports Package give the interior a particularly sporting ambience. The upholstery’s exclusive character is underlined by high-grade materials, contrasting seams and the M emblem applied to the seat. Further interior features included in the M Sports Package comprise, inter alia, an M leather-clad steering wheel, an M gear lever knob, the M footrest, an anthracite BMW Individual roof lining and M aluminium hexagon interior trim strips.

yeah, I agree with that. The new model looks like a bigger 3 Series and nothing excited me about it. I think the only design that look amazing for me is the Z4.

The new Z4 has a big engine bay, but the hood/bonnet is very low. The new M3’s V8 has a big air box on top, this is the reason why the M3 which has a taller hood/bonnet still needs a hood bulge. I guess the only way to fit the V8 into the new Z4 is to give it a huge ugly hood bulge more than double the size of the one on the M3.

Yes I like Audi’s and think they have the best looking wagons around. This in no way affects my opinion about how BMW seems to be unable to produce an attractive wagon. Love BMW sedans, but there is just something about the wagons...this is getting better though.

This M Sports Package doesn’t do it for me. Somehow it looks a little too aggressive for the 5er Touring. Overall it just doesn’t
work. The article could read "2011 BMW 3-Series Touring M-Sport Package". 3er & 5er Touring are indistinguishable from each other at first
glance.

Woah, it really looks a lot like a big 3-series on these pictures. Which is a good thing.But i think it doesn’t need this package looks great without it.

I think this would definitely look good on the sedan whenever they do end up showing the M-Sport version.

IMO its not that appealing as the other BMW Sports car. but it looks great in black. but still I’m not that impressed with it’s design.

Add a vent here or there and this is what the M5 will look like.
