I hope it isn't looking like the 7 concept luxury effort! The headlights are way too slim. Furthermore BMW have to be careful with the headlight-kiss-grill design language. It works with the 3...

Alan, you now have a portfolio of your work online. Why not write to BMW and suggest they put you on the design team for the next generation 5 series? I'm nervous about what BMW will produce. The...

Well, I guess some see beauty in ugliness. Next you will suggest that having the taillights at the centre looks great. Each to his own!

How can you say you don't care about aesthetics when you find the shape and structure of the 5 series aesthetically pleasing? BMW are not foolish to implement bilateral exhausts in the 535i. They...

Sophisto, aesthetics is always important. The 535i with bilateral exhausts looks better and you know it. BMW would have done the same for the 530dEur. The 530dEur has a double exhaust bundled to one...

I don't know why the car mags don't conduct detailed comparisons of eg 535i vs 535d. It would be extremely interesting. Another intriguing point is that the European 535d is a better performer than...

I'm sorry to say this, but I find the stitching on the Nappa leather, as shown in Markl53's photo, offensive. The Merino is by far the best in appearance. The stitching on the Nappa is simply brazen...

Alan, what are the essentials one would need for a "right optioned" 5 series? I think the A6 is OK but it doesn't have the leonine sports sedan look of the 5 series. I don't think Audi have the balls...

I think your choice of colour shows impeccable taste. However, the suspension is too low and the car is beginning to look like a caricature. Secondly, sometimes you just have to jump. You can only...

Throw in four hefty adults with luggage going up hill and then you will see that the 4-banger is in fact underpowered. Furthermore passing acceleration is far superior with the 535i. I feel the 528i...

The OP is coming from a 750i. Undoubtedly he'll find the 528i underpowered for such a heavy car. He really should go for the smooth 535i if money is not a limiting factor.

Yes, but it would have to be a blue that's lighter than imperial blue, deep sea blue and the obfuscating carbon black which is really a dark blue. Also a light bronze coloured F10 would look just...

The OP should get what he paid for....a new car. He wasn't responsible for the damage and it is quite possible that an employer took it out for a spin. If it was me, I would insist on a different car.

I would go for X Line because I by far prefer the shape of the matt chrome on the airintakes. It looks so much better than Luxury Line. As for M Sport....well....it's a non-starter. I hope the X5M...
