2012 bmw 5-series Reviews and News

2012 BMW 5-Series
2012 BMW 5-Series
Redesigned for 2011, the 5-series sedan got a handsome new suit of sheetmetal and some new mechanicals underneath. Fuel economy improves this year, as the 528i and the 535i gain auto stop-start, which can shut down the engine when idling at a stop. The 528i drops its straight-six engine for a 2.0-liter turbo four. We're sad to see the six go (although the 535i retains its turbocharged version), but the turbo four actually makes a bit more power than the six. The steering in the current 5 has lost some feel, but the chassis deftly combines a plush ride and superior handling. Buyers who want to take things further can spring for the sport package or the M sport package, both of which include dynamic damper control and an increased top-speed limiter. A manual transmission is available for the rear-wheel-drive versions of the 535i and the V-8-powered 550i. All-wheel-drive models, the 528i, and the Gran Turismo use an eight-speed automatic. Buyers who go the autobox route (a no-charge option where it's not already standard) are treated to one of the best automatics on the market. The 5-series Gran Turismo hatchback has effectively replaced the wagon. It's more than just a hatchback version of the 5-series. It's actually sort of a cross between the X5 SUV and the 5-series sedan. Compared to the latter, it's considerably larger -- longer, wider, and taller. Its sloping roofline gives it rather odd proportions, but its long wheelbase makes for plentiful rear-seat legroom (as much as in a 7-series), and, of course, it has lots of cargo space with the rear seats down.
BMW Rearview Camera Commercial Kids In Car
As a teenage boy, it's important to learn how to be polite and courteous to women, and prom night is the one night to showcase all those good manners. The teen in the video below seems to have it right when he greets his prom date, but the BMW's  rearview camera rats out his true intentions.
2012 BMW 5 Series GT Front Three Quarter 2
Call the 2012 BMW 5 Series GT what you want, but it's not a slow vehicle. BMW's been fiddling with the 2013 model, and now promises both more horsepower and better fuel economy for the high-riding tourer.
BMW M5 M Performance Edition Group
Buyers in the U.K. will soon be privy to a 30-car run of the BMW M5 M Performance Edition, a special model that is previewed by this brief video. The cars receive various aesthetic upgrades, although there are no performance modifications. Of the 30 cars, ten will be painted in each of three new "Frozen" matte colors: red, white, and blue. (Frozen Red is actually a wrap, rather than actual paint.) The cars also score black 20-inch wheels, a full Black Merino Leather interior, BMW Individual Piano Black trim, a "BMW M Performance Edition ONE OF 30" laser engraving, and M-Sport front seats. A BMW USA representative told us there are currently no plans to bring such M Performance models here for the U.S.-market BMW M5. However, in the past special BMW M3 models with Frozen paint -- the Frozen Silver and Frozen Black -- have been sold on our shores in extremely limited quantities. Based on that precedent, it's not impossible BMW will eventually offer up a matte-painted M5 like these examples in America. For a closer look at the BMW M5 M Performance Edition, check out the teaser video below. Source: YouTube Click here for video

HAMANN BMW M5 Front
Hamann Motorsport has big ambitions for the new BMW M5. The German tuner has developed bold new aerodynamic pieces as well as interior upgrades for the Bavarian sport sedan, and power enhancements are on their way.
