I like the Marina Bay Blue a lot. And I didn't know how wide the new Rear Seat Entertainment Screens are now compared to the LCI F10 M5 Reat Seat Screens.

Now the only question remains, as Chris Harris will ask: But will it drift?

Edit: Anybody else notice the range indicated on next to the fuel gauge? 115kms at a 1/4 tank? Seems rather terrible. ~460km total range = 285 miles. Did we ever get an answer as to the actual size of the gas tank in the new F90 M5? If this accurate at all, the F90 M5 has a shorter range than an E60 M5.

Or am I reading that number wrong? Is it really 775kms?

Are not the range algorithms based on the previous miles driven. Maybe this car spent a lot of time idling or driving in stop starts or hauling ass. That could effect the range left.

I doubt they hauled ass with the car for 4kms all the way to the Autoshow showroom floor. Lol! If it had been idling a lot, wouldn't that increase the range too?

Idling decreases range. You're burning fuel with no distance traveled. The algorithm is based on recent patterns. I guarantee this car had to have a limited amount of fuel in the tank for the show, so the pattern established would not be impressive. The car, and Marina Bay Blue, however ARE impressive!!!

Really wish there was an option for all silver wheels (maybe there is?)... Right now it looks like the choice is blacked out or mostly blacked out.... which to me is a look that at this point is played out.

Idling destroys your range. Let your car idle for an hour and then check your range. Granted it is not as bad as flooring it for 25 miles, but a mixture of flooring and a lot of idling will kill the range algorithm.

I was there today and it does looking amazing in blue. And with the white full leather interior - gorgeous. I would maybe put other wheels on (not really a great fan of these 20 inch wheels´ design), but otherwise it is perfect.

BTW - the carbon fibre roof has drilled holes for roof rack. At last.

I don't like gauges, should be more circular like it was before. The tach redline should be closer towards the top of the dial rather than hidden. Dials should be easy to read, not just trendy- see Porsche

It looks like 115km to me.... at least based on the other 1's and 7's around the instrument panel.

Does anyone know if the rear tyres will be 285 or 295 yet? The original press photos showed 285's on the blue car and 295's on the red, nobody seemed to be able to confirm what the final choice is.

Looks great but needs to be lowered bad! I agree there needs to be a silver wheel option. Gloss black? Yuk

The rears are officially 285mm rear and fronts are 275mm. Yes they went down from 295mm that the F10 M5 had, but up on the fronts to 275mm from the 265mm that the F10 M5 had too. Rear tire width isn't as big of a factor anymore with the M xDrive system.

This thing is just a monster and is very impressive inside and out. The interior looks among the best of any car in the world. Everything looks high-tech and solid.

Automototube always goes over the tires, i was waiting for him to release his video, they changed the red car's rear tires to 285s from 295s in the press photos. However lemetier said you are able to set tire sizes in iDrive. Whether that menu will be accessible by us mere mortals is yet to be seen though. I'd hate to have the problem the GTRs have on the mis-sized R888s.

Here's the video, you can briefly see it when he pans to the rear tire size.

Also, why would they scare us to death putting Pzero's on the blue car? Don't they know that gives us bad flashbacks?

Have i mentioned how bad gloss black wheels look? I mean, if you were to give a poll to people between silver, gunmetal, a mix of polished/gunmetal (like the 343s), satin black, and jet black glossy wheels, I can almost gaurantee you gloss black would come in last place by a country mile. WHO would want gloss black wheels especially since most of these cars wont come with ceramics... even wheels that are well maintained are going to look AWFUL after awhile.
