The new BMW 5 Series has arrived, and it's causing quite a stir. Some love it, some hate it, but one thing's for certain: it's got people talking. The team from TheStraightPipes, including Jacob, take the 2024 BMW 5 Series I5 M60xDrive for a spin to see if it lives up to the hype.

With a whopping 593 horsepower and 586 lb-ft of torque (605 lb-ft in sport boost mode), this beast is no slouch. Engaging sport mode, they experience the pumped-in audio, which, while not entirely natural, adds to the overall driving experience. But it's not just about power; the 5 Series impresses with its handling, thanks to rear-wheel steering. It's a car that feels like an evolution, building upon its predecessors.

Now, let's talk about the looks. The design of the new 5 Series is polarizing, to say the least. The front grill lights up, reminiscent of the M iconic Grill, even though this isn't an M car. Some may find it a bit over the top, but it's less butchered than the 7 Series. The wheels, on the other hand, are a standout feature. Dark with nice accents, they perfectly complement the car.

Inside, the 5 Series boasts a high-quality interior with a touch of plasticky elements. The ambient lighting and red seats add a touch of flair. The infotainment system, iDrive 8.5, offers wireless CarPlay and a shortcut for climate control. The crystal controller, while visually appealing, proves a bit challenging to use. But the adaptive cruise lane centering is top-notch, almost as good as the X7.

Overall, the new BMW 5 Series delivers on power, handling, and style. It may not please everyone, but it's certainly a car that demands attention. Whether you love it or hate it, one thing's for sure: the 5 Series is here to make a statement.
