Given past history of M LCI releases, anyone want to ponder when the LCI M5 will be launched?

I know everyone complaining about headlights and I don't like them either

The tail lights look inspired by m4 cs

Lol Yeah its ugly. 8 series has a nice DRL even the new 1 series has better DRL than 3 series.
Btw im not saying the LED better, its just a bit better than the laser light.

I have to disagree. The F10 was an OK looking 5-series. Definitely better than the E60. To me the G30 is the best looking 5-series ever as well as the classic E39.
I third this too.

The F10 was generally speaking a good looking 5 series but the front and rear end look chubby and absolutely disliked the cheap looking hood line well above the grille. That's ok on a Mazda 3 not a $50K+ luxury sedan.

Love the sleeker side profile of the G30.

The interior of the G30 is leagues above any F10 as well.

The G30 is a cut above the F10 and E60 before it.

+4 (obviously personal preference)

E39 was a good looker , particularly the msport versions , still looks good to me today.
Never warmed to the e60 (so never bought one) but over time have disliked it less.
F10 I thought was good looking but never felt the front was quite right.
G30 I think is better and about as good as it can be. Client well grills look like they are marginally bigger , still acceptable but bmw don't any bigger! Headlights borrowed from the vw golf, not keen as regards what we have seen to date but I'll reserved my full comment when it gets released next year.
I wonder what the 5next will look like in 2023/4 .......

What's up with the rumor that the 545e won't make it stateside?

Because BMWUSA would rather sell you a 745e at an even higher profit margin.

Not too bad at all - mercifully, it has been spared the same treatment as the 7

I think that scrapes through as ok but to be honest its fine as it is today.
It does look like a skoda / <insert name of many others cars here> so not so distinctive.

When BMW introduced the "angel eyes " on the E39 LCI (think I'm right in saying that was the first car to get these?) they made a very distinctive look to the make and for a while you knew you had a Beemer behind you at night.
these days, it could be just about anything.

I cringe at what the next 5 may look like.Perhaps might be the last combustion ones, but that's another topic.

I've recalled this exact same photo appeared in the US News automotive section/article in June 2018. That article talked about the new 2018 BMW 5 series "what you need to know", at that time (2018) pre-LCI. Needless to say, this is an airbrushed photo.

Do you guys think waiting for the 2021 facelift is worth it?
I have a good offer on the 2020 version that I don't want to waste if the changes are minor!

The changes seem mild for this LCI. Like what I can make out of the headlights and twilights.

Curious about interior changes if any.

You don't mess with success BMW.
