Is the 5 Series GT an E60 or F10?
 
Exactly what the thread title asks... I cannot find it confirmed anywhere.

Not positive, but I don't think it is either an F10 or E60. It has the new European bumpers, but I read somewhere that the underpinnings are mostly from the 7 series. No doubt some bits and pieces are from the E60, some of which will probably also carry over in the F10.

It is neither....it is the F07.

Wait... so do we need to put this as the F10 / F07 forum????

I think we should have a separate F07 forum.
Doesn't X6 have its own?
And 1 Series hatchback on European forums? :dunno:

I agree.

Yeah... so did I! ;)

I am doing a story for J.D. Power about the car. I knew it really wasn't the F10, but I also couldn't imagine BMW using the E60 this late in the cycle. I knew the 5 Series GT used the same rear suspension as the 7 Series.... I am still waiting for BMW to confirm all of this.

I believe the car is a whole lot bigger then the F10 so I dont think they are really related except that they share a similar 'look'

Lets just ignore that BMW GT thing altogether. Maybe it will go away. :tsk:
