just found another pic of new 5 on website.

This one normal. I'm sure the trunk will be like the 7, but it seems like it will definitely be a little toned down, which is good IMO. Also looks like the turn indicators will be on top of the headlights like the 7, which is not a good thing IMO. Although I'm saving that judgment till I see how they really incorporate it.

Here's the link to the actual article:

They also mention that they don't think the change in the design will be as radical as the old 7 vs. the new one. I don't mind.

Photos from magazine

Here are scanned images from a German magazine that I got when I was in Europe in February. This might be more accurate.


If someone can read German, please translate...

The 5 in that 5-sport posted is actually not bad at all IMHO. I think I could actually grow to like it, although the tail lights look a little wimpy (but clean at least).

Thanks for posting that sport. That gave me a little bit of hope... :D

"Auto Picture Magazine."

"We drive the new C Class, is it the Best?"

"Small Car test.
How good is the new Honda Jazz"

"We search for the best 2002 driver you can win a Ford Mondeo and Focus.

"This is what it looks like the new 5er BMW."

Can't read the small print on the rear picture,

The tail looks more like the E39 with new A4/Q45 taillights. Better than some E65ish BangleButt, but not very unique either.
Thanks in_d_haus


Would you like to translate more for us? I'm willing to scan the article and post so everyone can see. How's that?

looks kind of like a passat/a4/a6. Better than being Banglized though. I doubt this pics are very accurate-- they don't have enough Bangle features.
