The frontend is almost sweet... if it didn't look like it had been wearing makeup before going to run the Boston Marathon and having it run all over.

I like the new 5-Series a little more every time I see it...so it's definitely growing on me.

When newly designed cars are released, many people jump to conclusion that the car looks ugly but over time the car design grows on people and they changes their minds and like the design.

It's like some sort of hideous fungus. It may be growing, but do you want it to?

That's certainly true. When the A6 was first launched a lot of people complained about it being bland - now almost every review of the car raves about its styling. But unlike the new 5 it isn't being different just for the sake of being different - it brought some lasting effect to car design.
I have a feeling the new 5, and for sure the 7 which is itself due for a premature facelift, won't join that list of cars any time soon.

Re: The New Bimmer 5er (mahmgb)

I use to hate the new 7-series but now I really love it and I think its one of the sexiest cars on the market... however this new 5 is NEVER going to grow on me, there is not one good point about it... The lines are all wrong,the bumpers dont mesh into the body at all, as well as the trunk,tails and headlamps... just one big ewww haha

Im not feeling the interior very much.
The exterior looks nice, but I think the last 5 series looked sweeter.

Love it. Looks great! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I used to hate the head and taillights, but seeing these pictures from various angles it makes a lot more sense.

It's in German, but oh so many pics.

No, actually it's in Swedish. Also, look at the plates on that ugly thing - Swedish.

Re: The New Bimmer 5er (VWteknik)

i don't hate it, but i don't like it. I mean it's not something BMW should be doing(especially when MB is making beautifull conservative cars).
The taillights alone make the entire car look cheap. Look at the line that goes front he rear taillight and cuts in to the rear window.It looks cheapish. Usually even if a design on a Bmw isn't that nice i kept on defending it, but theres nothing i could talk positivily about.
That design is anti- 5series, anti- BMW and anti- german.

BTW, the 530d has got torque as much as the M5 - 500 Nm.

i think it looks great in general.
July issue of CAR, page 65, the new 5 is simply beautiful from that angle; that creased beltline is oh so powerful and sexy
