No, it will still be called ugly but the unfortunate difference is people will buy it

Now thats a face only a mother could love.

When I envision a BMW 5-series. I imagine a long, low, sleek, wide full sized sedan with an aggresive face. From the pictures, the front of that car looks like its afraid of something.

Gotta agree, the interior looks stunning. Good use of lighting if you ask me. I mean check out the light in the door compartment, talk about ambiance.

Looks like they all had something really important to do before they sat down to design this piece of crap.

This should be a totaly different series of BMW it's not a 5 series at all this should be a family series or something like 4 series :P
if that was the change i was waiting for then i'll move to Mercedes or Lexus.

I really dig this car
I wonder what the price is going to be for 550 and 335d
Also what do you think is the weight of this fine machine?

That might change once you drive one
It doesnt have to be as bad as Lexus 8-speed

Lately, BMW ATs have been nothing but great (ZF)
