Large set of 5-series GT photos (including some great details)

This set of photos of the new 5-series GT comes to us courtesy of Checkered Flag BMW. It was found in the very back of a car-carrier and the folks at Checkered Flag BMW convinced the driver to let them have a look at the car.

Lots of excellent little details are shown in these photos. Take a look.

I hate to say this, but I think BMW did it again... I have really started to like it...

It is so strange how almost every BMW design nowadays makes you first feel a bit disappointed but then especially when you see the cars in real life, you start falling in love with them. I think 5 GT is one of the best examples of this.

I noticed in the climate control display the drivers fan speed only seems to have 5 fan levels of intensity but the passaneger side has 9 different levels of fan speed intensity.

Could someone explain the reason for this? it seems very odd.

Did anyone else notice that the nav screen seems a bit small? Really small to me in fact. Look at all that wasted space to the right and left of the screen.

Remember Bridgestone says the "new" generation of run-flats are supposed to be worlds apart what was used in the past.

amazing. much better than expected.

i'm glad they decided to go the unique route, instead of sticking to a conservative, easy-on-the-eyes design (like Audis).
