New 20 inch wheels will also be a part of the Competition Package. In the video below you can hear that the exhaust has been revised and the M5 finally sounds like an M car. Definitely a more throaty rumble opening up the S63TU V8 meaning BMW won't have to rely as much on synthetic engine sound to compliment the M experience. About freaking time really.
Not only will the sound be addressed but the steering as well. One of the complaints about the F10 and the F10 M5 as well is the lifeless and over-assisted steering. Basically, the car doesn't communicate through the steering wheel as a BMW and M are expected. Interesting to see BMW finally admit this and decide to address it.
So, maybe all is not lost at M. Clearly they are swallowing their pride and responding to the competition if all these reported changes are accurate. Good BMW, there may still be some hope for you yet.
