Still though, sales of the wagon have never been strong, so BMW may claim despite the feeble GT sales, it still outsold the prior E6x wagon...
In the US the combined sales four variants of the F07 peaked at 2,850, whereas the the single variant of the E60 touring peaked at 2,350. Even in its worse year the E60 still outsold the F07 on a per variant basis. BMWUSA took a conservative approach and only forecast combined sales for the F07 ay 8,000 units or 2,000 units per variant. It has been implied that two vairants of the F07 and two variants of the F11 would have resulted in more sales.

Hopefully that will get them to reconsider and bring the wagon back. The GT looks transvestitely fugly IMO.

will the LCI apply for the M sport too in August 2013.....it looks like the grille have gone smaller than the original shape...i really hope the styling doesnt turn out like the f30 as the front of that car in m sport is really off putting!!

The 5 looks like a beast as it is!....can't wait to put my order for dec 13 delivery!

sumthin like that... the overall outer shape (85%) of headlights will b the same.
only the inner portion will connect 2 the grills like that render imo.

when i saw this design feature on the f30, based of pix, i absolutely hated it.
wasn't until i saw it in person is when my opinion completely changed, i really like it now

it looks good on the 3er but 5er is too big of a car to have the same design. But I need to see it in real life.
I hope it will be some thing like the new 4er

Not very substantial changes except the hood line and LED headlights.

Well... This just makes me very happy that my 13' will not look like that. I really don't like the connecting to the grills deal.

I'd love to know if they will be upgrading the steering wheel on the regular no sport cars.

The way I see it, the base wheels, the steering wheel and seats could be upgraded.

I sort of LOVE the look of the original bumpers. Now is the time to decide if you like the before or the after of the LCI.

Jason, is there a way to start a new thread with the new gray pictures?
