We've already covered the planned updates for the MY14 BMW 5 Series, but the
M5 is its own animal. The updates will include styling updates, new color choices,
enhancements to interior and lighting, plus the new 575hp Competition Package
that we covered in another separate story here at www.europeancarweb.com
New for MY14 is a kidney grille that features the M5 badge and slats that echo
the double-spoke design of the car's wheels.
Additionally, there is the option of Adaptive LED Headlights that put out a bright
white light from the pair of LED units placed horizontally in each light ring. All new
5 Series will get the new tail lights with narrow LED strips.
The new leather steering wheel again takes its design from the double-spoke
wheels, and there's a bigger storage compartment under the armrest. The
display of the iDrive4.2 now features chrome trim. The iDrive4.2 controller also
gets a touchpad surface, allowing characters and letters to drawn with your finger.
From July, BMW Individual will offer a range of exterior colors including Pyrite
Brown Metallic, Frozen Blue Metallic as well as other Frozen paint finishes.
Cashmere Beige and Nutmeg leather will also be available exclusively.
