prolly cuzz the back of the '11 is not as steep as teh e60.

imo...it looks like the front of a Bentley meets the back end of a Maxima...for a Benima:D

Looks Huge!
More and more am I thinking that the real deal M5 died with the E39.

same, I have not been entirely happy with the E60, and I'm not sure I'm going to be happy with the F10 either.

A lot of people think the real deal 5 series as a whole died with the e39...including myself. :(

why are biggers continuously getting bigger and bigger? in my opnion the m5 died with the e39, and the m3 died with the e36 although i have seen e46 m3s which i do like, i still believe they are getting way to big to be considered sports cars

Yup, they should line all models of civic up in a line, it'd be pretty scary. The new civics are like the old accords, like the new 3 series is like the old 5, or even the E23 7. Who could have thought back in the day of the E30 or E21 that they'd need to introduce a 1 series to have a "real compact" vs the 3.

Plus one! That's also why they had to make Fit. Civic was always the light, fuel efficient basic car. But they kept growing and growing, that they had to build another model to be what the Civic used to stand for. Quite sad.

I'm still a big fan of the E28 M5. That car was beautiful.
