I would like to know the name of that blue colour, I absolutely love it.
Imperial blue, if you are referring to my reply.
Thanks, but I was refering to the pic I´ve posted, the press pic.
^It's the same - Imperial blue...
I must be getting old, I thought for sure that was Carbon Black.:eusa_doh:
I looks fantastic, much more than on the config.
I thought it was definitely Carbon Black, however Imperial Blue looks very similar on the configurator, which is actually isn't very representative of reality.
Yeah, Imperial Blue is much more blue. Carbon Black appears to be black from a little distance...
I don't know about other countries, but in Finland it's a tad over 6000€..
Guess this pack doesn't look good in white. The rear diffuser is stupid, i don't think a car like this needs such a big fat piece of black plastic down there... probably looks better if that part stays in body colour. And what are those reflectors doing so high up? it screws the car's smooth lines up imo. The front i think is a bit overdone, i would've preferred smoother and i definitely would HATE to see M cars or M packs getting more angular, which would make it increasingly similar to MBs, which look like transformers. I still think the best M packs were the E46 and E39, those were subtle yet elegant and sporty and they perfectly fitted the car's lines.
Yeah true,the E needs at least 17 or even 18 to look nice and even gorgeous with AMG pack,i've yet to see a M packed F10 but i just don't like the detailing of the front bumper and disapprove that big black plastic on the rear bumper,why can't them just give it a bumper similar in design to M5's? not identical but just like how MB does does with E63 and other AMG packed Es.
I agree about the transformers/angular thing, being that hopefully BMW stays away with the M-Pack. However, it looks like the front F10 M-Pack bumper is more transformer/darth-vader-y than anything M-B has out, which makes it look awkward and unfitting on the otherwise smooth and rounded F10.
Hmnmmm...did you see the CLS AMG pack???
^^ I'll check it out again. Just struck me as similar to the W212 or newer M-B AMG pack. Maybe the angular lines on the F10 M-Pack just appear more angular to me since they contrast the more smooth lines on the car.
Depends on how you put it, i think those MB bulges and really angular/triangular stuff are still more transformer inspired than this. the F10 M pack isn't all that angular when looked at closely, but the overall idea is not smooth, and i just hope it won't get any worse.
Some people here complain that the new 5er looks a little to generic and plain. Voila! this M-package changes this. So if you don't want a "plain" car, get the M-package
The new 5er is such a huge improvemant over the previous version. BMW played it safe this time around. I`m a fan.. I also like the new sport package, looks great!
This car has absolutely no rival in the look department, at least on its segment.
I must admit. I saw the M Sport package on an F10 at Paris earlier this month. It was a white car and I was very underwhelmed. Even the 19" wheels looked too small. However, earlier this week I saw a Carbon Black 535d M Sport with 19" wheels at my dealers and it looked very nice indeed. The colour clearly made a difference, maybe because a dark colour makes the car look smaller thus making the wheels appear big enough.
I'm absolutely the opposite.
