Bengt Halvorson with The Car Connection were at the Portugal press even and give us their take on the new F10 5-Series.

Here are some select quotes from the article:

Quote:
The new 2011 BMW 535i is more of a driver’s car than than the current 2010 5-Series—or most other mid-size luxury sedans—while still upping the technology ante and not forgetting about the comfort and luxury that matters.
Quote:
Fortunately, all of our worries—and most of the worries we can think of for BMW’s enthusiast base—are for naught. First off, the steering in the new BMW 5-Series is the best you’ll find in a sedan its size; it’s one of the best systems yet—with a great, natural feel on center and plenty of road feel in tight corners.
Quote:
The bottom line is that the new 2011 5-Series feels a little sportier and more expressive than the 5-Series it’s replacing. Those who might have dismissed the 5-Series might owe it to themselves to take a new look at this one.

Awesome! Just what I wanted to hear... I hope they kick it up a couple of notches with the M5 though. That car has so much potential to be a wilder-beast but they can turn it into a tamed puppy if they want to as well. Lets see what happens.

i am one of the people he/she is talking about and i am willing to take a second look. i am very surprised about it being sportier due to the size increase. i am starting to get excited about the F10. i thought i would have to buy a 2010 but that might change. BMW please release some photos of the M sports package!!!!
