Leaked images reveal styling of sporty BMW 5-series

This is the BMW 5-series M Sport.

Pictures of the top-trimmed 5-series brochure were leaked to motoring website Bimmerfile, and show the car with a revised front end, side skirts and a tweaked rear end. It is also expected to be retuned to give a sportier ride and handling.

You still will the first time you run over a pot hole in one and put your back out.

i just don't understand this, you can get any Msport without the Msport suspension, i personally like a slightly harder ride, i have used my car (with sport suspension and 18 inch wheels with 35 profile tires) for over 30k now, and i have driven it for over 6 hrs straight without any sort of problems and got out of it feeling fresh.

If you dont like it don't buy it. i judt dont understand this "its got sport suspension and big wheels it must ride like a horse and cart being driven over the Alps" from my experience they are not really hard at all, harder would be a better word. Try driving an F40 and then you will know what hard suspension is!

Back on topic, i personally think that looks great, and bodes very well for the forth coming M5

Glad the title has 5 series in it, pictures look like a 3 series. M cars do look good but those new wheels don't do this car any favours.

From my own experience the current 3-series M-Sport is the only car I have ever been in/driven that has induced back pain as I've driven over a bump. It really is awful.

I hope this new 5 is better than that because I really do like the look of it.

BMW drivers are made of sterner stuff, I have had three in a row and wouldn't go back to anything less - the current 3 series M Sport is sublime.

If you really want to experience back pain, try any Audi with an S Line pack.

New 5 series is the business, as every motoring pundit so far will confirm.

i think they're ok actually. i'm still alive after a year in a BMW Z4 sport. heck i actually took the car back in to the garage to have the alignment checked out. the tram lining was that bad i thought the was something wrong.

Yes, also really bad. It didn't give me back pain though. Maybe Audi seats are better.

It's strange because to start with the ride didn't seem to bad, firm but compliant but as soon as I hit a decent size bump any idea of bump absorption went out the window.

Maybe I'm just getting old. My back is fecked that's for sure.

Not a fan of it to be honest, particularly the front bumper. The wheel selection doesn't look that great either.
