color

dang, I was convinced that my next 5 would be this color, but it looks quite blah in that lighting. Looks great in the showroom, but...

Currently have Frozen Arctic Grey, which looks great in any lighting!

Reminds me a little of Indianapolis Red from the E60 M5.



Really not liking the rear lights on the F90 LCI, makes the car look really heavy at the rear in my opinion.

Unpopular opinion but that E60 looks so damn good, I still prefer it to the new ones, although I'm sure many won't feel the same way.

For some reason every 5er after the E60 looks fat, not bad looking just could go on a diet, even the new 3er looks bigger compared to it

Really like this LCI. Looks sharp and more classic BMW.

They are still dual slatted but now they form to one point at the top where it is angled more, making it look like a single slat.

Dang. You can barely see it. I'm guessing irl, it'll be easier to notice. Still give me Pre-LCI anyday for me

thanks for pointing that out. I finally realized what the LCI taillights remind me of; these civic tail lights.

the taillight bars are too bulky and the solid black surrounds makes it look like a jeep.

Aventurine Red is a nice color but doesn't suit an M5 Competition in my opinion. They tried this before with the E60 and Indianapolis Red. Both colors that fit better on a 7 series IMO. I like the headlights, but the tails look strange.

I like it except that the front grilles stick out way too much. It makes it look like there's a big gap between the hood and the top of the grilles.

I think it looks good for a sleeper build. Not my style but I could see somebody not wanting to stand out much and enjoying this handsome shade of red
