Am I the only one who loves the current 5? This looks like a stretched out current 3 series.

same sausage different length. slight changes from 7er. while the current 5 is not the prettiest it is definitely different. i guess so was the Aztek but it's not that ugly.

Interior is definitely a huge step up. finally proper LED readouts for the temp as opposed to the silly knobs which is so old school. i still like how they minimized the number of buttons unlike other makers like Acura that suffers from buttony.

now if they can just redesign the ugly 6 series, BMW will be on track once again.

Now 6 sieries is not ugly... I think its a nice designed car, I very much like the current design of a 6 series. They just need to make it prettier. Just like they did with z4.

^ although the new 5s are larger than the old ones, this isn't a fair visual size representation because of scale: the new ones are in the foreground, hence larger. the old ones are in the background, hence smaller.

i was thinking that those massive grills must drastically increase drag, but apparently they are dynamic and close when not needed and during cold runs... pretty cool. i wonder what the drag coefficient is compared to all the previous years

So the previous seven series and E60 look to be the past. You can tell how bmw is trying to fix that when they got that new 7 series in 2001/2. I am glad. Thank god.
