G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

Checked one out today in person. My biggest issue..

,, is the Sensatec dash. Truly feels out of place in the rest of the car. Are there any pictures with the brown sensaec and ivory Napa leather? Maybe the brown looks better than the black. The gauge cluster looks OK not great but its something I can live with.

Unless they offer a Napa option I may have to forego the leather dash. Why not have a stand alone $1000 option like in the X5? Any pictures of the brown dash will be much appreciated.

Was in a rush so no test drive, or extended review. Also, the 530i did have a "Sport Line" label on the door and the guy said it had sport seats. Not sure how that syncs with the packages, since I cant find it online. But the site is a mess now anyways.

FYI, M Sport and/or Luxury line has Sensatec dash standard -- can't "not" have it with M Sport.
