    I'd post my spy pic shots of the 6 series but OTuploads isn't working.

    I'll PM you my email address. You can send me the pics and I'll post them.

    BTW, there WILL be a 6 series for sure. BMW recently sent me some marketing material asking what cars I would like to get information on and the "New 6 Series" was one of the choices :bigthumb:

    If you are refering to the spy pics, they just cover up the rear and throw on some lights to make it street legal, but if you are refering to the first pics then, well thats just the way BMW does them now unfortunately.

    I actually like the one in the photoshop pic. It's not nearly as angular and ugly as the current 7 or the forthcoming 5.

    Yeah I hope they restyle it, doesnt even look close to a BMW. Looks more like a Ford Taurus and a Hyundai Tiburon in an accident. :greddy:

    The front is fantastic, the rear is the expected Bangle spastic.

    Overall... if it pushes good power, I'd pimp it.

    Everything but the rear looks like what the Z4 should've looked like. (Even though I like the Z4 headlights better) It has clean lines and NO :greddy: flame surfaces fucking it up. As for the arse... :down: :greddy:

    There's an old one for sale up here (well, a 2.5 hour drive away)... Anyone want to lend me $18,500? ;)

    These new 6-Series images were in Autocar this week, so I thought I'd share.
    They have had mild photo-editing on the lights, but ultimately thats the prototype for the finished article.

    In all honesty I'm not very keen on it. The back-end is just too left-field for me, and I still feel the wider kidney grille looks more Pontiac than BMW.

    I like the drawing better. The side vents are also positioned too low.

    why does the rear really remind me of a dodge intrepid? and the front is pretty lexusy... i'm sure it's a sweet car, but the exterior is just outright :greddy:

    I still like the around 95 m3 and the i guess its 2001 M5 style...

    i'm really glad that they're bringing back the 6 series it looks good IMO... now all they have to do is bring back the 8 series.

    This was posted up in the main forum, and its meant to be the new 6-Series undisguised, and looks like its testing on the Nurburgring.
