I really dont see how this is MUCH better than the E60. The lines are very similar and the only thing that is significantly different is the tail lights. The front fascia resembles the E60 as well as the side profile. Not too much change from what I can see

Agreed. Still looks like the e60, thought it looks like they toned it down and took a step back toward the conservative side.

Also looks like they're taking the Celis tails away again, only to possibly reintroduce them during the mid-cycle model refresh like they did with the e60.

Less ugly than the e60 by a long shot, but still a bit chunky and not as good looking as the e39. I think some decent rims would go a long way (they certainly have on the e60's I've seen).

Now if we could just get a 535d touring with a manual....

Did they steal the rear tail lights from Hyundai?





Or Honda?

Looks much better than the E60. Also related, the new 3 series sedan looks more like the coupe and therefore looks much better than the old 3 series sedan.

Exactly. They are toning down the styling. I think the jump from the E39 to the E60 was too radical, and probably a lot of potential buyers agree, so it's a step back.

Think about it - some of us in here might have otherwise traded our E39s in for the new model by now. I mean, our newest E39s are 5 years old, but we're hanging on to 'em.

the only 5'ers ive automatically liked..and have consistently liked are the e28s, e39s (ftw!), and e60s. i havent had a click with the others. maybe the new one will grow on me..just like the new 7'er? but thats a whole different ball park.

Maybe you could compare it to the hyndia but def no the honda. Just because the lights are red on top and white in the bottom dont make them look alike...
I used to not like the E60, but it grew on me BIG time and now i love it. I was really close on buying one also. but the deal fell through...

I think what makes that new 5 look a little different is the fact that it has lights on the trunk. E39s and E60s only have them on the outside body part.

Me too -- a few days ago, I parked my car going to work, and there was a black 550i sitting nearby, and with the rims it had, it just looked......right, somehow. I like the interior too, even if it's really hard for me to get into.

I'm with you Mack. I think the E60 has great styling however like some stated, it might have been to much of a chance for some people.

Hello sweet lover! She looks pretty sexy all dressed up ;-) . I'd definitely say the E60's grown on me to the point of salivation over the past two or so years. I get nothing but boo's and hisses on the 7 boards for deciding to trade in my 760i for a new 550i.

I can't wait to see what the new 5 looks like with an aero kit.
