Looks nice, just wish it wasn't so big. Seems to be about the same size as an E63 6 series...

Not bad, the bumpers are a bit dodge-dart-ish but definitely something I could grow to love

Why it even exists in the first place, still a mystery....

I'm sure they did, just wondering when the up-sizing is going to stop. At this rate the next 3 series is going to be the same size as a 7 series.

Danimal & I were operating the scales at Mosport for scrutineers during a race-series and on our spare time we weighed our own cars & a few others (friends). I was surprised to see that my E46 M3 weighs 45lbs more than an E32 750iL!!

Why do bmw. mercedes and some GM and Dodge products now all share the same bumper, ridiculous.

It is a nice looking car though, just wish the boomer on the quarter panel wasn;t there, would improve the cleanness imo.

Is this pretty much what it's gonna look like? I hope not. It would be absolutely gorgeous if they toned down those bumpers.

That's jkz. It would be interesting to see real world weights of newer cars
