New mirrors, new wheels, new rear diffuser, added side gills, updated front bumper, etc. I think this is closer to the production version.

Why is this in OT? :dunno:

Also, the rims doesn't look right. E46 M3 19" forged rims? This is probably as close to the real thing but from the other M5 shot in the proper forum, it doesn't look like the side skirt is this aggressive. :dunno:

Er, that looks to me a lot like someone took an E60 and Photoshopped in the side gills, 19" wheels, and mirrors from an E46 M3. :dunno:

Call it blasphemy, but I think the new E60 sedan looks better than the E46 sedan. And I actually like the new 6 series a lot more than the E46 coupes. :dunno:

Not going to trade my 323Ci in, since I've poured so much blood and sweat into it, but I'm certainly looking forward to picking up a 645Ci when my 323Ci is paid off.

They wouldn't need to be on the mule since they're useless anyway.

They were on the E46 M3 test mules that was spotted by Jon Shafer in S.B. a few years back. They were on the E46 M3 test mules that I spotted over 3 years ago. They just tape over it.

Is it just me or does the new 5 resemble the Acura TSX from some angles? And not in a good way, either (not that there's anything wrong with the TSX...I just wouldn't want a bimmer to look like a souped up Accord).

Better than the E39. :dunno:

Edit - I do like the looks of the E39 M5. But the E60 beats the non-M. I want to see the two M5s in person, next to each other. :)

I will have to see this car on the lot for a final judgment, but I really dislike the look of the new E60.

Yes, the new 6 Series Coupe is better looking than the E46 Coupe. But after drinking 2 bottles of Vodka and 1 bottle of Whiskey.

I can see it now, it's going to replace the popular "Vodka and Red-Bull" drink at the bars.

someone on fanatics did a pshop. they altered the headlights so it doesn't wrap around the sides, they made the kidney grills part of the hood instead of the front bumper, and they added 20" BBS LM's. check it out:

Much better :thumbup: . Still not liking the eyelash treatment, though. And did they Pshop the butt too?

The truncated eyes don't work. And I'm not a fan of big rims with little bits of rubber around them on a street car.

Damn thing looks like a cross between a cat and a demon. I'd have bad dreams about the thing.
