Not to be outdone by the stars of Detroit, the BMW 1M and 6-Series, is a Space Gray 550i decked out with the factory equipment M-Sport package which includes a new front apron, rear apron and sideskirts. The car also comes with factory standard 19" double spoke 351M wheels.

On the inside, there are sports seats featuring Alcantara / fabric upholstery especially developed for the M Sports Package give the interior a particularly sporting ambience. The upholstery’s exclusive character is underlined by high-grade materials, contrasting seams and the M emblem applied to the seat. Further interior features included in the M Sports Package comprise, an M leather-clad steering wheel, an M gear lever knob, the M footrest, an anthracite BMW Individual roof lining and M aluminium hexagon interior trim strips.

Space Gray seems like a color made specifically for the F10 5-Series' body lines. The color shimmers under the show lights like no other, and gives the car a sense of purposeful elegance. The M-Sport kit goes takes the car one step further by adding some agression to the purpose. The overall impression I get from this car is that its beautiful, a car for any occasion and environment, but at the same time the car means bussiness. The 407hp V8 engine under the hood will help make sure you can backup those good looks

Face yes. Side skirts aren't very aggressive and the rear apron is a bit of a let down IMO.

Hate Lexus's style exhaust pipes. All else look so good.

The car needs to be lowered and change for oval exhaust pipes.

Not really my style. I believe that the five and the three series are starting to look more and more alike. I dislike the Lexus style tail pipes.

I like it. But needs spacers and a 1" drop. Wheels look out of place.

When haven't the 5 and 3 looked alike?

The car looks awesome, if a bit large. Sits too high though, I thought it was an xi at first.

Can you get a 550i with a stick?

Side cameras. I have them on my X5. There are also cameras under the side mirrors and my reat tailgate. Quite an impressive feature.

I debated waiting for this damn thing, but the wife made me get the X5 instead , due to our child...

I really wanted the 550i
