Sounds like someone won't be invited again

This seems to confirm all the "rumors" going around.

Very nice, seems more of a sleeper M5 than the last two generations. Can't wait to see/hear more.

M5 F90

I'm currently in South Korea, at what Dealership did you go? I would like to contact them? Sounds weird that South Korea would have it before a German Dealership. The one I went to in Uijeonbu only had the G30 550. I asked about the new F90 M5 and the sales person said they will not get in South Korea. Just like my F85 X5M. I have the only I have seen in South Korea. I see many X5M 5.0D but no X5M. I did see a X6 M but not X5M F85. Just would like to do a follow-up. Thanks.

I contacted the guy who posted the specs on Instagram to get more infos ... no oled and launch estimated October.. no oled would be disappointing as Scot had confirmed them in a previous post .. also hope that the car will be presented in Frankfurt...

You know I did one of these before and I had to sign a non disclosure agreement. Here this guy is totally violating the terms of the preview. Smh

It's really simple. People going into these have to sign a non disclosure agreement. You wont find too many idiots violating this.

You can know the CEO of whoever of BMW M, chances are, he's not going to tell you anything you shouldn't know.

They're dropping the DCT (and obviously manual) in favor of the 8 speed torque converters. BMW just announced that they're going to stop using DCT for high hp applications because they don't handle the extra power well enough from a long term reliability perspective.
