    Looks a lot better in person, esp in LeMans Blue. Not sure if I could live with the looks every day though. I could def live with the engine though :big grin:

    Yeah, it looks a lot better in darker colours. I'm the same though, I still cannot fully come to terms with the looks of it. I spent all of last month staring at it on my calender, but there are just too many angles where it looks awkward. It's a car I really want to love, but the looks wont let me.

    Le Mans blue is a beautiful, looked amazing on the E39 M5. Then again the E39 was so close to perfection anyway, which is why the E60 would always have such a tough time. Mr Bangles styling didn't help though.

    I like the looks. Seeing it in person may or may not change my opinion.

    I think they are dead sexy. The only thing I miss is the old style of BMW wheels, I miss the deep polished lips on the old M wheels better.

    Looks like an attempt? You know how much power is in one of these things?

    I do, however, like the 3-Series (Particularly the M3) better. Anyway, as of late Audi>BMW.

    In my opinion...beautiful. But the SMG trans is garbage. Who wants to drive around in a 100k car, bucking and jerking in traffic? :ugh:

    Wait till the 6-speeds come out next year. The first year bugs will be fixed, and it will have a proper transmission. :fawk:

    Looks like a cheap Japanese car. I look at the old M5, and I can't believe that this is the hulk of shit that they chose to replace it with. If they would have stuck with the E39 car, and put the current engine in it, along with a true stick shift 6 speed transmission, I would have never even gone with Audi again. But alas, this is what we received instead. :(
