    M5 US sighting

    Just saw a test mule of an M5 today on Pacific Coast Highway with the usual tapings but different wheels (BBS).

    With BMW R&D located in Oxnard, CA, it is not unusual to see these test mules a year to a year and half of their introduction to US. In the past, I've seen Z3, Z8, M3 and Z4 way before their production in Pacific Palisades, CA.

    The new M5 looks much smaller that the current.

    Re: M5 US sighting

    How do you know it's an M5 and not the future '4 series'?

    Re: M5 US sighting

    Show me pictures of the test mule for the future 4s and then I'll tell you.

    The car I saw was exactly like the photo of the M5 test mule on internet for a while. New 5 in black with tapings covering bottom half of the car with 4 exhausts. The only differences were the wheels which were shiny BBS.
