It has a 3-Series butt

Note: its odd how that E60 doesn't have a sunroof.

I like the F10 too. It looks great. I love that picture too. I wish I had an E39 too then I could say a member of my immediate family has owned every generation of a 5 series!

Notice the progression in the nose design; it started off slanted forwards, then slowly slanted backwards until the E60, and there's a hint of a vertical slant in the F10.

Not sure I like it. I mean, if I want my car's rear to look like an overweight Camry, I'll get a Camry.

As the E60 is definitely growing on me, I think my tastes are just 10 years old. I'm also thinking it's getting to be time to get rid of my sweatervests

I like it. I was considering going with a Merc next (E63), but now I think I would like to give the new M5 a serious look before making my final decision.

Definite improvement, but I don't know about the rear end. Looks a little Infiniti-ish.

A very nice design indeed. Hopefully they've address some of the unacceptable mechanical issues with the six cylinder E60 engines.

hmmm...I will need to wait until I see it in person before I pass judgment on the way the exterior looks. The back and front end look off to me right now. I was hoping they would get rid of the big intrusive gray joystick from the cabin though.

And with twin-turbos, imagine the possibilities...

Just a little? The first thing that came to my mind was the G3x rear.

It's definitely a mixed bag, and I REALLY wanted to like it. I'll be the first one in line to see it in flesh at the dealership, but I will probably leave with a new E92 (the best design to come out of BMW since 2000) instead.

Not quite as nice looking as the rear end on the 3 series - I want the 3 series rear on my E39

Here's a question... why is the center consel so passenger-centric? Doesn't that look goofy?
