Space Gray 2011 550i at Canadian debut in Vancouver

Here you go, the real official North American launch in Vancouver today. What a stunning car. For those people who think the styling has taken a step back from the current 5 series, I want whatever your taking. Seriously on my drive home I saw a number of 5 series on the road and this new design is light years ahead. Obviously everyone has a different opinion which, as my wife tells me, makes the world go round but....

Anyway the two interior shots are not of the 5. I took a pic of the cinnamon interior on a 550GT to show the latest cinnamon. I can tell you that in real life the colour isn't as nice. The pic I took I had to use a flash so it actually looks better in the pic than it did in real life,

The other interior was of a 7 series hybrid with Oyster/black interior which is what I am not contemplating. It looked really nice. The wood in the 7 is different but the tone is similar.

Overall the 5 looked great. And by the way the prices I posted a few days ago are official. That particular model with packages was 85000 but the base was 73000.

The US must really suck in terms of BMW loyalty or something. Every other country is getting a first hand view of the car and I am told that we still have to wait another 3 months to see it. /rant

The color is quite reasonable for a 5-series car, and the photos are outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

Looks good in space grey.

Yes they are the 7.

Thanks for the pics! I personally think the F10 is nicer looking with the darker colours, like Sophisto Grey or BSM. The contrast with the LED lights comes out nicer that way.

Canadian Pricing for the 535i = $62,300.00 550i = 73,300 Base Prices
Prices on the 5 series have actually gone down?
IMO this new 5 series is Hot!

CanadianGold2010 - thanks for the great pics. My new whine is, "I want a new 5 series." Styling is incredible, and as you and many others have noted, the overall look and I believe ride are more like what I love about the E39. I think I need a metallic black 535i w/ beige interior, but in my case, I prefer the gloss wood trim. I might be a bit subjective on this one. Cheers.

PS: Weren't the Olympics great?!?

I was just excited to get to take some pics......The dealer actually showed me an analysis of this years car vs last year in terms of pricing. when you compare and include a standard equipment, the cost of the 535 actually went down 4000 base msrp and the 550 went down 6000 msrp. Pretty surprising and speaks to the US economy being bad and then BMW Canada having to lower prices because the Canadian Dollar is at par with the US and they cant be offside price wise.

Yes the Olympics were amazing. I don't think anyone here in Vancouver expected such a great party. Canadians aren't usually so overt in their national pride and these games just brought them out.....

I just had another look at the pics - I'm trying to figure out the function of the small black circle that is mounted on the fender just in between the front wheel and the reflector. It appears to be made of plastic or rubber, and is (co-incidentally?) in line with the bumper collision detection sensors. Might it be a position sensor of some sort as well? Cheers.
