F10 Sedan front end?

Few images were posted on F10 5post Forum

To me this looks more like an suv than sedan... who knows...

This image has shown up on a few forums and online auto articles. It's apparently suppose to be a "leaked" photo scan from a new 5 series brochure. Of course there's no confirmation yet so we can only speculate. However if this is any example of the new F10 front end, I personally like it. I think it has very nicely sculptured hood, headlights, and kidney grills. I don't like the lower half of it and unless the proportions are off somehow, it looks like the ride height it too high.

But again, if this is any where near the direction they're taking it in, some of my fears have been relieved. . .lol, of course they always have the rear end to screw up on. While the current E60 headlights grew on me, I never liked the tail lights. Even more so, I don't like how the latest refresh changed the rear turn signals to red LEDs rather than the traditional amber/yellow.

Interesting as i like the e60 for the same reasons you don't like it... i like the lci rear lights the front has always been very good looking in my opinion.

Shows you how some opinions may change.. when e60 was released i was not impressed one bit.

From what I can see the lower portion of the bumper looks horrible

Why would the new F10 5er and the new 5erGT have different front ends?

Not bad at all! Nice side view mirrors, among other things.

This new design gives me pause. Maybe I should wait for the next generation after the F10 ..... meanwhile, I can make due by buying a Honda to save some money.

I would see it in person before making such a rash decision
