That rear corner shot makes it look like a squished down X5 in my eyes too. Hmm, I don't think my E39/2 has anything to worry about yet. Those front lamp "eyebrows" are nasty... at least the white hides them a bit.

gojira-san...is the E39 touring really known as the "E39/2"? I didn't realize that. Nice bit of trivia.

I think that is one of the ugliest cars I have ever seen. The E39 touring is so much better. The worse part is that seems to be a fairly equipped model because it has a M tech bumper. What does the base model look like?

Yeah the Touring models were officially E39/2; I think the E36 touring models were E36/2 also. I don't think they did that with the E46 and of course, the E61 instead of E60.

I really dig that M Sport Pack front bumper. Almost more than the M5 front bumper. I though BMWNA had not current plan to sell it on our shores... I wonder if the plans have changed.

Thanks for the pics.

I'm with you...sell the M sport pack bumpers with the E61 and I'll buy it. But not in white

Did you happen to get any interior shots? I imagine they might not have come out shooting through the windows (and fingerprints ) but I figured I'd ask.

sorry i didn't get any interior shots. I didn't think of it because like you said they wouldn't have come out very good. I can't really remember the interior very well. I couldn't see in the rear side windows because they had the shades up. I think it will resemble the new e60 sedan interior.

Yeah I was curious if they had changed anything from the current E60. I have not been very happy with the look of any recent BMW dash or interior. (I think the only current for-sale models I like the interior in are the E46 and the X5.)

Thanks anyway!
