    Today my father goes to school to be informed about the new 5. He is taking his digital camera and will be shooting some shots of the new beast. Would anybody like to offer to host the images so I could post them here tonite when he gets back?

    this car has really grown on me.. when i first saw it i thought it was going to be another z4, really gross and all, but on further consideration, the design isnt half bad. i think it'd look a lot better in person, plus who can resist 500+ horses?

    i hated the 7 when i first saw it, but after a drive in it, and hanging around them, you learn to appreciate them more. i look forward to what bmw is coming out with, unleashing alot of new models, especially the return of the 6, i can't wait.

    That silver strip on the top of the headlight is pretty bloody annoying.

    The 8 is coming back ,and it will be a mighty beast when it arrives.

    Just so you know, the blue one is the sport version.

    I may have some more pics later today for you people.

    my friend and i conned our way to the top of the Sterling BMW dealership garage in Newport Beach on friday which just happened to be the day that they recieved three brand new 5ers. eventually through lots of bluffing and pretending we were really rich we got to test drive a car that had already been sold. it was a silver 530i. i didn't get to drive it but my friend did. he said it is slower than his previous generation E320.. now thats just sad.

    and from my spot in the backseat i wasn't impressed at all. first i-drive is a bitch and i can't imagine what the one in the 7 series is like. why the hell would i want to scroll for several seconds to get to where i want, and then shove that clunky i-drive stick down to select it when there could be an ergonomically button placed on the dash.. seems to me the old 5 series did a good job of that already.

    interior is just outright weird too. fast sloping door handles and rear legroom thats only about an inch better than my GOLF. and seeing as the new 5th generation GOLF will have one or two more inches of room thats astonishing.

    my friend said the power was just kinda blah. but maybe the 545i will be a lot better. all i know is that my chipped 1.8t golf is faster than his E320 which is faster than the new 530i.

    i went into it with an open mind i really did. i was excited to be tricking this dude into letting us drive it. and i was happy to see a brand new car and to be one of the first people to ride in a new 5 series in this area. but even with all that excitement i found stuff that was just way weird about the car.

    its appearence is better in person than in pictures i have to say. the nose is still weird and the tail is odd too.. but not as vomit inducing as the 7 series.

    cliffs notes - 530i power lacking. exterior not as bad as expected. interior is weird. i-drive is a peice of shit.
