I didn't think it was possible for the E60 to get any uglier.

The removal of the M5 Asshole is a huge improvement.

Not at all. The E60 Touring is much better looking to me (however I still prefer the E39 look the most)

The production haven't been acknowledged yet. They are testing a lot of things these days.

There was an E39 Touring prototype as well, unfortunately it never made to production.

But chances are looking better this time.

FWIW, when my wife and I were in Munich this past April for our X3 ED, I saw an E60 M5 with the M6 wheels. I have to say, it didn't look as good as with the "regular" M5 wheels.

The M6 wheels look great on an M6, but not so great on an M5, IMO.

I agree- after seeing a couple of pictures of the M6 wheels on an M5 lately, I've come to the same conclusion.
