Lightbulb Spied: BMW 5 Series LCI M Sport and Interior w/ iDrive Touch + New Steering Wheel

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW F10 5 Series LCI M Sport and Interior Spied w/ iDrive Touch + New Steering Wheel
53
COMMENTS

Sure, we've already seen the F10 LCI basically revealed (at least for the front end updates), but this is the first look we get at the M Sport LCI model as well as the LCI interior.

The interior shows the new iDrive Touch system and new M Sport steering wheel, which resembles the F30 3 Series M Sport steering wheel.

The exterior doesn't show much changes to the M Sport bumper except perhaps a new foglight housing. This prototype also features a trunk spoiler (as standard?).

As we've mentioned previously, mechanical changes will include updated steering and the N63Tu engine (445hp / 480 lb-ft) for the 550i. Production for the F10 LCI begins this July, with deliveries starting in August/September.

I can't see a damn bit of difference with all that camo on. Can anyone else spot anything new as far as the m-sport body work goes?

Looks to have the touchpad on top of the iDrive controller like the new x5. And the new M Sport steering wheel from the F30 m sport and M6.

That's the M6 wheel that will be standard on the new M5's going forward.

Pics can be found here

The front foglights are different and the lower grill has the blank bit in the middle. Thats all I can see on the front.

The lower part of the front bumper looks pretty much the same, but the fogs looks weird.
So far I don't regret ordering the pre-lci f10.

Looks to me that the fog lights are simply taped over. You can see the round shape behind the black mask.

It's still hard to tell but the steering wheel looks like the new 3 series Msport one. I'm probably going to jump on a new Msport replica when it's out.

3-series M-sport wheel is awesome. Nice to see the F10 will get this option finally.

The Corona rings look squared like the 6 series headlights.

Also, those look like sport seats rather than the comfort seats. Maybe the M-sport will now have sport seats standard instead of the comfort seats, which will be an upgrade.

Trunk lip too since nearly every single M-sport owner has put one on they just saved the new guys the trouble!

'Square' headlights means adaptive LED headlights.

These are indeed the sport seats but having driven both sport -and comfort seats the comfort seats are 100x better. In Holland we pay a 800 premium on sportseats compared to the standard seats (which are crap) and a whoppy 2200 premium on comfort seats. But worth every dime!

I love BMW in this day and age where makers like M-B are trying to make the quick buck by drastically changing their vehicles for mere facelifts, ruining the timeless value and future regard of their designs, sans harmony or long term careful brand protection.

BMW keeping the M Sport so similar is a great testament as to how the INSIDERS regard these cars. You can look at is as they don't want to "mess with perfection", while Mercedes and the like do the opposite. Keeping the M Sport so identical shows they perceive it as a classic which was designed right the first time! Bravo.
