    Re: Getting my 525i this month

    Well, new model's been heavily advertised throughout this forum but I'm not bothered by it. The 525i is pretty much what I want in terms of specs and standard accessories. Like most will say in this forum : follow your heart!

    Listed price is still $193,800. Now it depends on your overtrade price and your SE's ability to fight for a bargain, or provide you with impeccable service that is priceless. Mine managed to do most of the above! So I'm happy.

    Re: Getting my 525i this month

    Here are some news on the new 5 series and picture renderings to go :

    Preview: 2010 BMW 5-series revealed

    Geneva Motor Show's in Mar 2010 which is also expected to be the launch date. When will it come to Singapore? No one knows. But the current 5 series production run will come to an end this December. New orders stopped since 9 Oct and whatever's left on the table will be the last machines on BMW's inventory.

    Re: Getting my 525i this month

    More news on the new 5 :

    Developed under the internal codename “F10,” the next-generation BMW 5-Series will soften the harder lines of the current E60 with more conventional-looking headlights and a cleaner front-end design. As indicated by a recently leaked photo — and the front end of the 5-Series GT — BMW will move away from the polarizing design of the current model.

    New European pedestrian safety standards are expected to drastically alter the design of many European cars for the worse, but BMW will not only maintain its classic twin-kidney grille design, it will reduce the length of the front overhang.

    As is typical of most recent BMW redesigns, this 5-Series will add some space between the wheels by extending the wheelbase nearly 10 centimeters and widening the track. The overall length will grow by less than 2 centimeters, while its height will be reduced slightly and its width increased by a fraction. A set of 17-inch wheels will be the smallest available with 18- and 19-inch wheels optional.

    When the new 5-Series finally arrives at dealerships, it will be available with the same twin-turbo V8 found in the X6. Just as in X6-guise, the twin-turbo V8 will make about 400 horsepower in the 5-Series — which would put it in the same neighborhood as BMW’s E39 M5.

    It is also believed that the base 5-Series will be available with the same twin-turbo six found in the BMW 335i and 135i.

    The next-generation 5-series is expected to feature an eight-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive option being available. The new 5 will also have Park Distance Control and an around view monitor system, similar to Infiniti’s Around View Monitor.

    Re: Getting my 525i this month

    Was advised by SE that aftermarket rims are a big NO-NO for new BMW cars and may affect warranty. Told to go for OEM BMW rims instead which in a way, I tend to agree. At least it won't be open to contention when sh*t hits the fan...

    But then again, those OEM rim designs are boring to say the least. I've got the hots for the HRE ones, but they're phenomenally high in price. Any bros here got any thoughts on this?

    It loses the characteristic E60 front LED day running lights and the rear cold-cathode fan-shaped tail light. Too much like a E90.

    Not feeling the new 2010 design either...

    Too much restrictions on design. I think most of the European car designs for 2010 are going to be less than desired...

    Anybody knows how much is the 3M floormats? I got one set for the E90 and wish to sell them since I no longer need it.
