    I love the interior. Really nice but the exterior is going to take some time getting used to. I'll wait til i see the car in person though, because I absolutely love the 7 in person when I hated it in pictures.

    you'd think that after the current 7 series design disaster they'd think more carefully about how they're redisgning their cars. The Z4 front end is ok looking, but the rear looks like crap. This new 5 series is just not doin it for me, BMW is getting a little too "creative" with the headlight designs. I think this one looks like a pontiac from the front. Give me an E39 over that thing any day.

    I can't stand that nav screen placement. What's with the cave-effect? In fact the entire dash lacks smoothness, and rather looks jutting out at you.

    As always, I reserve my final decision for the real life viewing. But this looks like shit so far.

    I saw nothing wrong with the current 3, 5, or 7 (prior to the them changing it) series. It's like they're changing it for the sake of changing it.

    I have to agree there. Its the same as in the 7-Series all because of that bloody i-Drive system. It looks wrong as it leaves a large gap between the air-con dials and the centre console.

    In terms of the exterior, I really dont know. I want to like it but some of the lines on it are just too harsh and abstract. Most likely look best in dark colours.

    Time to go buy an E39 528 Sport I think.

    Don't suppose it occurred to anyone that the nav screen might be caved in to keep light off the LCD so you can actually see it...

    that's one UGLY Bimmer. It's like Bangle got raped by the Korean designer for Hyundai, and the only way to stop the S.O.B. from raping his ass was to promise to take parts from other brand and meld it all together for the new BMW car. This is all part of the Huyndai/Kia conspiracy to bring down the BMW styling to the hell that is Korean car design. Or maybe Bangle just got offered a nice sum under the table to ruin all that is BMW. :rolleyes:

    No. Peugeot 406 actually looks quite attractive and smooth.

    The more I'm looking at the new 5, the less I'm liking it. Looks like it'll be another car due a facelift after a year or so. Much like the Subaru:big grin:

    wow that is horrific.. i can't imagine too many BMW fans and owners liking the direction of the BMW designs. i mean, this is just pure ugliness. 7 series i don't think does justice to the previous generation 7.. i mean that car is fucking gorgeous. Z4.. eh whatever, didn't like the Z3 either. weird headlights on the 3 series are disapointing.. but this.. this new 5.. wow.. way to ruin a good design.

    sad to say that while the new 5 may be a good car in a bad looking body, it can't compete with the new E-class in the looks department. the previous 5 and previous E were probably more evenly matched.. but now MB has jumped ahead and BMW has fallen on their face with Bangle's design. and while i'm an MB guy myself.. it really really saddens me to see this happen.. i dunno what the stats on the 5 will be or what options you can get, but based on the 7's iDrive and this new body design i can't imagine many people will be able to get over the ugly looks and stupid iDrive.
