BMW Corporate Survey Regarding Future M5

Did anybody else take the survey?

It appears they are looking for feedback on possibly introducing a hybrid 6-cylinder M5, with equal performance to the present model, and better gas mileage.

Doesn't matter what the customers say, they're gonna do whatever they want.

Agree 100% with you!


This is the first M5 for me and I love the car. I would not buy a hybrid one if that is what they offer on the next generation.

No on a v6 unless coupled with a 1000hp electric setup, under 4500lbs and fully loaded for $100k

I would rather not have a quieter, worse-sounding, more delicate and disposable car. The F90 is so nearly perfect. Add a front lift system maybe? Update the looks lightly. But why fuck with a good thing

I got the survey for my 540i asking same questions. I told them I'm not interested in any hybrid. Either it's fully electric or fully gasoline powered.

Well I dont think we are buying an M car for fuel mileage but will consider like Stealth7 say at 1000hp otherwise stick with v8 or v10
