Video review of the new F10 5-Series


It seems as though AutoSpies had alot of fun in Portugal during the BMW press events for the new 5-Series and 335is. They put up this excellent video review of the new 5er, which IMO is a must watch. It contains alot of information we all know already, but its nice to see these things in video. Hit play, sit back and relax

You don't like the ones in your E92 though? I agree they don't look normal, but it doesn't block anything, except for a AC vent.

But, almost every manufacturer has this problem. It's as if it's always an afterthought. My dad's E-Class (2008 model, not the new one) gives you either a cup holder or an armrest. That's even more ridiculous in my opinion, as they've fitted the cup holders in the armrest. If you want a cup holder, no storage compartment, and no armrest.

They ARE an afterthought. European cars generally do not have cupholders!

QFT. Do you really think the bolt-on cupholder in the 6 Series and Z4 is there by design?

Great video review, but the guy must have had a terrible camera or something. Him walking around the car with the camera shaking was annoying.

I agree. I meant to say they are an afterthought; said it incorrectly.

As much as I agree with you on the point that the 1/6/Z4 bolt-on cup holders are an afterthought, I somewhat prefer the design compared to anything else I've seen on cars recently. It's not in the way of anything, except when you have a passenger there (which I suppose is a lot of times for many people). But for me, I prefer that location.

I don't like the cup-holders on my E92 at all, the nestle water bottles that i put in there...not very big or long, when i enter the highway they always either fall out or tilt to a side...if the cap is a little loose, u get spills because of that....the cupholder is not deep enough to hold most bottles to be honest......anyway aside from this annoyance, i love my car
