Is it me or does von hooydonk look like a scumbag? He has a certain EuroTrash quality or at the very least in need of a shower.


I miss Bangle's passion and articulate-ness as these intros.


I'll reserve judgement for the car when I see it person. Looks great while in motion, so I'm hopeful.

meh. it's okay. it looks like i imagined the next 3er to look. it doesn't have that 5er grandness to it. the E60 5er looks like shit but it somehow looks more classy than the F10.

again, to me, this is what the next 3er should have looked like.

It looks rather ordinary to me. Perhaps the photos don't do the justice ... Yawn.

idk, but to me it seems like BMW cant get the 5 right, it does look a bit boring, a cross between a 3 sedan and the 7! reason for not getting one, but ill wait until i see it up close and personal

I think BMW hit perfection on the head with this car. Especially when you see that picture of the car lined up with the rest of the family! But what really gets me going is that the car looks even better in real life pictures that haven't had the heavy marketing photoshop job applied to them. In person this car will be electric!

I will reserve final judgement until I see it in the flesh but so far it looks ok, however nothing to fall in love with. It has very little wow factor but maybe this is the design language they are looking for. Overall decent job.

Guys, if you look at this car and look at the past 5 series they all share the same line EXCEPT the E60. They all have a simple design. Look how ugly the e39 look in that group pic. They all look ugly and bland in the group pic.

what makes the 5 series look good is the sport package and it has always been this way. even the E60 545 looks great. The sport package is what transform the 5 series from a boring look to a jaw dropping look. Then you move up to the M-sport then the M5.

You can tell that this car belong to the 5 series family. you cant tell that with the e60. even the dash has a similar flow just as the previous generations EXCEPT the E60.

Some say this car looks likethe current 3 series and 7 series. I too think it looks like a 3 series in some ways. however if you look back, the only "era" of cars that doesnt have similar lines are the e90 pre gen 7 series and the e60. those all have totally different lines.

the e36, e39 and e38 all have similar lines.

I agree... he seems like a David Beckham of auto design ...

This design is so much nicer and hotter than the competition. Can't wait to see the sport package on the 550i and the M5. The car is amazing!!!
