Sweet!

But, gets you thinking ... with all these electronic aids ... people are going to get real lazy with their driving skills + won't turn their heads anymore (ie: Blind Angle check and reversing)

I am so proud of BMW with the new 5er. with all the renderings and photochops i was really in serious doubt. The 5 GT also wasnt somethign to jump for joy at first. But this is all great. I appriciate every aspect of the car, especially the interior, its much more substantial now.

excellent job. I wonder though, how would bangle do it.

I love the techno stuff. Absolutely amazing but it's going to cost alot of dough to get all the optional equipment. Great looking car though

Nice job BMW< nice job. Beautiful design, nice power numbers combined with good fuel consumption. I mean 27mpg hwy for a twin turbo V-8? Nice. though, my choice would be the 535d if they bring it over here to the states, as I'm environment conscious, and 30+mpg COMBINED fuel economy with the low CO2 emissions and still great performance is a WIN-WIN-WIN scenario.

Cheers,

Speeding? Really, at 75-76 mph? The pic says 122KPH.

Cool tech gadgets, I like it!

Actually that is the thing which leaves all other car models (like Audi etc.) out of my list. Can't wait 520d with 8-speed auto...too bad that need to wait Q3/10...
