+1 - In all likelihood the 5er GT will replace the 5er touring. The touring doesn't do enough volume in the U.S. and the GT pretty much gets the same job done with the option of more luxury (the four seat version) and unique style for people who don't want an suv, but don't want a wagon either.

I think the new design team in on crack - first with the new 7 series and now this! What's with the ugly hood line going across the front. In older models they used to work the hood line down into the grill so it wouldn't be that obvious - now it just goes straight across the front of the car - ughk!!

Our local dealer just north of Orlando is "unveiling" the the GT tomorrow. I assume these are hitting the ground all over the US (apologies if they have been here for weeks already). If I get by, I will snap a few pictures and post. I must admit, I am in the market for a 5er in about 9 months. I don't like the pictures, but I am intrigued. Kind of in an X6 kind of way.

Edit--> Apologies, did not get by dealer on Sat, so no pics.

Made it to the local "unveiling" in my area.... In addition to the 550GT, they had an X5M, X6M and 750iX. All pretty cool looking cars, of course targeted to their respective audiences. The Missus, who was adamant that a 535 Touring would not be seen in the driveway, was pretty enamored of the 550GT. Anyway, a few pictures of the new model....

What I don't understand about this car is...isn't this the segment the X6 was supposed to be for?
