I gotta agree that different wheels/paint would be a better showcase, but overall I think BMW design did a fantastic job with the LCI. Looks fresh and aggressive and keeps the character of the car we love.

Looks like BMW is saving money on the headlights and tail lights. The rest looks great!
Tail lights are not great- they do not look futuristic like the headlights...

Would prefer montegi red and the competition wheels 789M. But it is still a mind blowing sleeper. It looks almost like a normal car while it's a monster! Love it!

Sad it all will end very, very soon.

Paint quality is crap and the wheels are horrendous. I am neutral on the headlights and taillights, but no way I would swap my 2019 for this.

I had to stare at this photo before I figured out why I didn't like the tail lights. Why do the lights fade in these areas? Is it on purpose? Is it a byproduct of the image adjustments? Is a bulb broken? What gives? I hate it.

BMW focus groups have not heard that in a loooong time.

But yes, for once they left the grille above the bumper and not let it drop to touch the ground!

I like the color. I dont like the headlights, grills, and taillights. And those wheels look weird on an M5.

While the F10 went back to classic 5-series styling; I agree it looked huge, the G30 does too and even the G20 3-series. These cars just won't stop growing.

Color sucks.....doesn't matter how they want to display it but maroon is a crappy color for a car let alone a performance car. The M5 frozen maroon is yuck, too. It's basically a Buick color.

Those wheels do not match the M5 at all. I hope these don't replace the regular comp wheels.

The hate is real and palpable in this thread. Mostly from those who will never own an M5 in their lives, or people with the pre-LCI who are butthurt now that their M5 looks dated.
