One awesome video review of the F10 535i

I can't speak French, but despite the language barrier, this video review does its job well and reaches across all languages IMO. The sounds and action footage does the job very well

Just a reminder, the upcoming 535i will be equiped with the new N55 single turbo twin scroll engine producing 300hp that has made its first appearance in the 535i Gran Turismo and will be seen across nearly the entire BMW lineup.

For all ofmy criticism of BMW doing away with the N/A engines for //M, and doing away with the policy of "each //M gets its own engine" I think what they are doing with the rest of their cars is just brilliant. Great looking, and appears to be great everyday performance and luxury.

Nice job BMW, keep up the good work.

Cheers,
e46e92

Is it my imagination or is the exhaust note in that 535i way better than any of the current 35i's?

Who needs a V8?

Man, that sounds excellent! I'm a diesel freak (its, the TORQUE!), but diesels simply sound like rubbish compared to BMW's N55. I'll take my 535i in black, with a manual transmission. Can't wait to test on on the raod. More videos..and please include more engine sounds!

It sounds MUCH better than my 535i!

Love the interior, love the options, love the performance, HATE the new body.

I think the new body is gorgeous...much better looking then the current 5. It vaults BMW design into the realm of Audi - which had become the kingpin of recent years

Omg this car is amazing. That engine sounds perfect from inside the cabin, and those hood ridges look way better from a driver's point of view. Goddamn, this car is awesome.

I don't understand this statement. This design is much more conservative like an Audi, if that's what you're trying to say.

I wouldn't say Audi styling has ever been >>>> BMW's styling. The B8 A5/A4 look great because they were much newer releases, but I can't think of an Audi that's far and away greater than its direct BMW rival.

You are right. No. You can either chose between 6-Speed Manual or 8-Speed Automatic. 7-Speed DualClutch is "exclusively" for M3, Z4 35i, 335i and 135i.

PS: I like Sig M3 sketch. Did you make it yourself?

I want an M3.

The M3 E90 sketch is better than M3 E92.

Sorry for off-topic.
