Lightbulb Some LCI F10 5 Series Details Emerge in VINs - 550i Gets N63Tu Engine, 535d for US

I've done some damage on the F30/F32 side, now it's time for F10. This is by no means exhaustive, I just happened to hit on a productive VIN range, but there's no guarantee all new F10s are in that range.

The first VIN below shows the LCI 550i touring with uprated N63Tu 445-bhp/480-lb.-ft engine (just as the 650i Gran Coupe and 5GT already received last year), good for +45hp / +30 lb-ft torque over the N63 engine.

The second VIN shows the 535d coming to US.

The 5 Series LCI update is due this Summer/Fall. See all F10 LCI news/updates @ http://www.bimmerpost.com/?s=f10+lci

And finally, this VIN shows LCI 535i as maintaining N55 engine with same power rating.
