Looks brilliant! Thanks for posting Gustav.
I think that it's more of a rebirth of the e39 - the turbos will give good torque at lower rpm - Obviously not manual like the e39 though! And doesn't sound so insane like an e60
I've heard somewhere that the power will be more like 575bhp - probably something to do with the power race (Ie Audi RS6)

When has BMW put them elsewhere (like on the steering column)?

There are pros and cons to both locations but what else would you expect from BMW given their history with paddles.

Hence the 'again'.
Didn't expect anything different, just wishful thinking I guess.

Kill switch found on prototype BMWs. Not a production feature.

I liked the video so we could have a sneak peak of the dash styling. For some reason the interior is important to me. I hope BMW changes the round exhaust tips to some other shape that molds well with the rear facia.

Man ive been on vacation, missed all the F10 M5 updates!!!!

In the first video at :35-:37, did anyone faintly hear what could have been a 2-step launch control system? Im personally not a fan of those as they are normally on ricey subarus and whatnot but, the sound seemed unmistakable

Interesting. 2WD 2-step launch control in a twin-turbo 2 ton V8 sedan.

This is going to be one heck of a car. Anyone who still thinks this is not a worthy successor to the E60 is just silly. I would love to meet you. The E60 had two more cylinders but the F10 has one more soul than the E60 (at one).
