info on 2015 M5?

I'm planning ahead some for a 2015 M5.

Any word, rumors, sites that discuss its contents? What might be added, refined, or dropped?

In particular, will manual transmission still be offered for US models?

Thanks in advance for any pointers - Researcher5

Thanks

Thanks for the observation -- this I understand (depreciation of supercars).

Keep the ideas coming!

Its not an observation its a fact from owning the car

And I doubt much will change given they just did LCI for 2014.

Wait until 2016 or 2017. From what I understand, that's when the big changes are coming, including an AWD model.

Thanks. Really my concern relates to "the last manual." I think I just got the last 6MT in the 550i M sport in July 2013. I'd like to be positioned to get an M5 in manual before they're not made any more (but I love my new 550i 6MT, so don't want to replace it for the long-term until the last moment).

CP was a nice addition for 2014, and I'm wondering what might come along anew in 2015.

I'm looking for as much warning as possible as to when "the last moment" may be -- the 550i 6MT vanished rather quickly and unexpectedly, and I really had to hustle. I have low confidence that whatever follows the F10 will ever have manual transmission.

I believe the M5 will have a manual. Considering the M3/M4 are being offered in a manual, I think the M5 will have a manual option.

You thought wrong. No (major at least) changes for the M5 for 2015.

very little changes. MY2014 just had the LCI.

Next major change would be the G30 M5 ... probably due out in 2017 as MY2018, most likely AWD
