Exclamation F10 5 Series LCI Spotted Uncovered. Gets Separate Lines?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Should be the first spied in the world.

Looks like BMW is introducing separate "Lines" packages for the F10 LCI.

Mechanically, the F10 LCI will received reworked steering, and the 550i will come with the new and more powerful N63Tu engine. Production for the F10 LCI as beginning in July 2013, with deliveries starting in August/September of 2013.

I am getting a 2014 LCI 535d doing Euro Delivery on July 24. I like the LCI enhancements however they are minor.

If that's actually a real pic (why use a background?), it definitely got the 7-Series treatment and actually looks pretty good. Didn't affect the overall appearance of the 5-Series.

As I need 3 messages to start my own (introduction) thread I might as well ask in this thread ;-)

Does anyone know if there will be new or changed colours available, both interior and exterior?

Hope you guys know that these will most likely not retrofit, right? X5 and X6's didn't either.

Differences between spy photo and autobild photo:
1. Autobild f10 has lines from lights to kidney, spy photo f10 does not
2. Autobild f10 has ridiculous and pointless squared vents and flat whiskers, spy photo f10 has f30-like whiskers

I think f10 lci will have some air vents near the fog lights like f30 has

Oh no. They are introducing lines?

Last chance to order f10!!!!!

I hope they just nail the m sport this time with a better rear bumper like the 3 m sport. That's my quip about the m sport in the first place

Totally disagree. The bars in the taillights is one of the best features across the lineup (where available). It stands out even more when you look at the taillights on the Audi's and Mercedes (which have become awful, 2014 E-Class).

Lets just wait before we make up our minds. For me, I really need to see these cars on the street and dealerships. Then I can determine whether to like or not.

Btw, m5 front sway and H&R springs improved the steering feel a lot
