So the real question here. Does anyone know if you will be able to get a LCI 550i in 6 speed manual?

Only thing that matters is the steering changes. Ow minor update. Interior looks lovely. Unfortunately can't change the bloated curb weight and 116" wheelbase.

Did anyone notice how there's two extra buttons on the seat above the lumbar support? Are they bringing the side bolsters back?
Sigh. Good time to upgrade now.

Can't really tell, but how are the rear lamps different? Are they darker?

The multi contour seats/comfort seats here in Europe has the adjustable side bolsters on the pre-LCI too.

I agree. Aesthetically, there was never a problem. BMW could throw all the luxury/tech features on but ultimately the F10 is going to be judged by the poor steering pre-LCI. Hopefully the LCI changes that.

Big wins in my opinion are:

- LED headlights
- B&O stereo
- iDrive with touch controller

Those make it a win in my opinion.

BMW should NOT have increased the price. the navigation should be standard on a car like 5 series. for an executive sedan, wouldn't you expect Navi when you sit your ass in the car? so WTF BMW!!!

and why no update to the N55 engine. not even a power bump!!!
when will the N55 be phased out? we need more power

there should be a power bump or weight loss that would put 5 series on a level pegging with A6

Wow.
Actually, BMW has moved the turn signals to the side view mirror housing across its range because of European laws going to effect soon that requires all vehicles sold in the EU to have turn signals in the mirror housing. BMW was the only manufacturer in Europe that still had them on the fenders.

The N55 replacement will launch in the 4er Gran Coupe, then trickle down through the rest of the line-up

I'm sorry, that's not what I meant. I was not referring to the turn signals being moved to the mirrors, which I don't mind at all and actually prefer on most vehicles. What I was reacting to was the fact that BMW didn't want to create new front panels to account for this change, and instead appears to be continuing to use the pre-LCI panels and merely placing a model identifier/badge where the turn signal used to be.

Looks cheap, and reflects a poor cost-savings attitude on BMW's part for the world to see.

Not really dying for the new exterior - the extra lines in the front and rear bumper are superfluous.
LED headlight option for all models is cool.
E-class facelift interests me more, but perhaps because I don't have one.

Also, prefer the old tailights, 3 lines is too much, like the 7.

Ok gotcha...well on that note I definitely agree!

Launch control is available on F10 models equipped with the Sport Automatic transmission, which is standard on the 550i. This is noted in the press release in the first post.
