I agree. It was one of those things where once they revealed it, you just look in awe. The new 5er simply looks good, bar none. I know looks are subjective and whether or not you prefer the aggressive look or the modern/simplistic look, I don't see how anyone can look at it and say it's not a good looking car, both inside and out.

That car is indeed a very very nice design, beautifully executed both inside and outside

Unlike another new model that just came out... somehow, I can't remember which one

Great, and my family might get one in the near future. The problem is the EA Steering. Hopefully BMW can improve it(like the new 6) so we can get some feedbacks like every BMW should have. Maybe after facelift...

another home run for the F10, this car is the real deal. and im SURE the F30 will rank the same as looks arent everything and styling is pure opinion.

Man I hate the fact that the F10 has TV screens for the back seats..thats something I would expect for the 7 but nor for the 5..It gives me a weird feel about the car. For the first time I would consider the lighter, smaller A6, which has some pretty cool techs and decent engines, not bad in styling too.

Why did the power train category score the lowest? Design and mechanical both. You would think the opposite.

My dealer told me the F10 was really eating into their 7-series sales. Maybe it's too good?!?!

It simply is the perfect blend of everything! M5 will be untouchable.

I was in the Palm Beach (Fl) area for a couple of weeks. Saw dozens of F10s, almost as many as e90/92s.
Same here in (west) Europe: F10s everywhere in Germany, UK, Belgium and the Netherlands. 80% of them are 520d's by the way.

The F10 seems to be a huge hit for BMW.

until you buy one, then the appeal wears off.

I can not go into any details because BMWNA had me sign a non-disclosure agreement.

I love my new 5.

They finally built a 5 that can stand up to the awesome E39 design.

It will be interesting to see where the new 3 series goes.

Back in the E46 days, the 3 series interior was on par with a 5 or 7. Now the 3 series interior of the E90 was taken down market and does not match the price point.

Really? My E90 interior is much nicer in terms of quality then the E46 I owned, which was also a huge leap better then my e36.

Also the interior on the E90 isn't any better or worse then the e60, I think its better personally because the weird angles on the E60 interior was a turn off to me.

Now the F10 interior is spectacular, and you can't compare it to an E90 its almost a 7 year newer design.
