The changes are subtle on the surface it is underneath that will really count.

A new re-profiled front end incorporating the latest kidney grille (with a forward looking stance/slant and thicker chrome outline) brings prominence to the front of the car.

The overall look for the lower intakes is taken from the 2010 BMW Concept Active hybrid 5 although incorporating air curtain technology and depending on model, further decorative trim elements.

Finishing off the cosmetic side of things The 5er will be offered with adaptive LEDs as an option , updated taillight graphics and a reprofiled rear diffuser. The Front wing mirrors follow the rest of the recent BMW line by incorporating the side indicators.

The next-gen six cylinder engine that will premiere with the F32 BMW 4er Coupe in spring will be available taking power out substantially higher than the outgoing N55. The engine will also feature BMW's Cylinder dimming recently introduced on the 7er and other aspects of the latest EfficientDynamics features.

Further inclusions of the latest four cylinders including a petrol powered EfficientDynamics model. Rounding off the regular 5er will be the latest inclusion of the BMW V8 in the 550i with more power and cylinder dimming technology for a more efficient drive and the M550d performance diesel.

And rounding off will be the usual interior trim , exterior colour and wheel re-designs. New technology such as the latest iDrive , Connected Drive features and in-car entertainment (B&O sound system).

The priority changes are effected to the steering which is reconfigured to be more communicative. A more class-leading ride and dynamic proficient handling updates in order to improve the overall impression of the car. The changes also apply to the BMW 5er Touring models and BMW 5er Gran Turismo.

The M-Sport packet's receive a slight minimal refresh aswell as optional M Performance accessories updates.

The updated BMW 5er line will premiere next Summer in time for sales in September where the car will receive its official debut at the IAA in September.

Like all M car LCI updates, changes to the M5 are minimal in regards to exterior updates.

The China only BMW 5er Li will premiere around the same time.

Official Debut at the IAA in September? Wouldn't it be available for sale in August or September?

happened with the E60 as well. it's inevitable, especially with how long the F10 has been out.

Probably. As long as their shapes don't change, which they don't seem to have done.

Neither the F10 nor M5 is getting attached/integrated headlamps and grilles (like the F30).

Its good to hear that BMW listens to everyones feedback and is taking the lack of steering feedback seriously. I know it may seem like a small detail but it makes a world of difference in a car. That says a lot about BMW as a company.

Funny that the F07 550i GT already got the LCI engine, for MY2013. It's like that poor thing needs all the help it can get.

I truly wish that they can retain the shape of the current head lights, so it'll be easier for me to swap.

Well according to Scott26, it sounds like we won't see the LCI 5ers for almost a year anyway.

I really don't understand the negative sentiment when a model receives an LCI update. Do people really have to have the latest and greatest that they are willing to spend the money on retrofitting new parts? I guess seeing how many members' signatures list two or three year old cars that are 'retired' answers my question. I suppose some people just get bored of owning the same car for 2-3 years, or are only happy driving the newest model. Buying a car should be viewed like buying new tech gadgets such as phones or laptops, a newer or updated model will always be right around the corner.

New. Headlights. Really? If you bought the car for the headlights, I'm not sure a retrofit will help you.
