Looks like new rims, side mirrors, front and rear bumper, front lower air intake, side marker lights, headlights, navi software and I touch. Am I missing anything?

The manual may not be an option for the 550 or 528...only the 535 according to that article.

Is the shape of the mirrors different, or just the fact that they have LED's?

I can't tell yet.

Definitely different mirrors. Overall, I would say the changes are very minor unless I am missing something.

Ah, finally just pinpointed it. You're right, all new design to coincide with the LED's. I actually kinda dislike them in architecture.... they look kind of odd angled, while losing that sharp inner pointed "squareness" of the current ones. They now are rounded off with a "cut" at the top of the inside corner, which isn't as cunning a look namely from the rear 3/4 angle. They also appear to be bigger....?

EDIT: Then again, maybe I'm reading too much into them. Looking closer, they almost seem to have the same architecture as the current mirrors.

It appears the standard mirrors have a longer arm, which I do not like and does look odd. I believe the current version flows much better and looks better monotone as per my ride :

Also the new M rear views are different as well and those look much nicer then the luxury version shown. I wonder if the new msport gets them?

From the above Autoweek link, regarding the suspension -

"The suspension carries over for 2014, but has been fine-tuned, according to BMW. The front double wishbones and integral rear axle are made from aluminum, which BMW says allows the suspension to respond with more precision."

No news on the reworked steering.

So were they not aluminum before, or they were always aluminum? First they say it "carries over" but then implies that the aluminum used is new (marketing BS tactics?).

"The cars’ chassis technology – which includes a double-wishbone front axle, integral rear axle and Electric Power Steering with standard Servotronic function – has been further honed to deliver an unrivalled balance between sporting performance and ride comfort."

http://www.bmwblog.com/2013/05/19/wo...ries-facelift/

Again, no details on the steering.

That M5 interior shot is an M6.
The front of the LCI looks quite different in all models due to the new headlight design. It does freshen the look.

Nobody mentioned the new engine for the 550; from 400hp to 450hp. It's time for me to get my '11 F10 550 Dinanized! :-)

The LED fog lights sounds very interesting, is that a first in the auto industry?

It's not really new. The F10 is pretty much the last car to get the N63TU...6 and 7 already have it.

I wouldn't think so, but perhaps?

I don't get the function, however, as fog lights NEED to be yellow in order to be functional. If LED/white, then what's the point? Aesthetics? I never thought of fogs to be particularly a "function of style" when kept on at night.

I guess they should look cool if on at night, along with the halo's.... or on the other hand, distracting and taking away from the simply effective look of straight up halo's.

The nav screen is a dead giveaway. Clearly not an f10 interior.
