It looks like a smaller 7-series, the design is practically the same!

Wow, it looks like BMW has another winner on its hands with that wheel design, it really compliments the car very nicely. Also it looks like the headlights will have a very 'cats eye' look with a sharp edge, similar to the E46 sedan with facelift.. I cant wait!

It does have dual squared off exhausts similar to the 7 series so I would think its the more high spec range topping car (be it 550i or whatever the top model 5 series will be). The 535i should have dual exhausts also, so I wonder if they will be regular round pipes instead of this square shape?

This should be the "5" to end all fives..........

Love the rims, the color etc. Should be a major winner.........

Unlike the E60- when I saw it first unveiled from a spy pic in South Africa in March 2003 I was shocked.............and not in a good way.

Great find! The F10 profile looks good even on a transport truck!
