Well lets just hope the F10 doesn't have that rear shoulder crease.

That's my concern. Look at the E92/E93 LCI spyshots. Looks like it's getting the exact same headlights as the F01 and F10.

BMW, if you want to return the 3, 5, and 7 to classy, conservative designs, I'm all for it. But give us three different ones, please, not the same one in three sizes.
W the last 7,5,3 series Bmw changed their design n each 1 was diff. Now w the new F series they going back to the same design w 3 diff sizes. I hate that. I guess they dont want to spent money on developing new design.

I'm finding this gen 5er's design somewhat tame. Who would've thought I'd miss the E60? But at least it made a statement, polarizing as that may have been.

This thread is funny. You could fill a library with the press and customer outcry over the "raucous styling" of the E60. BMW listens and responds with a very attractive (IMO) and more conservative design, and you guys start accusing them of lacking design strength. You truly cannot please all the people all the time.
