I think the new front makes the car more agressive a la 3 series. That was really my only complaint about the current 5. I love the space of the 5. And the power to weight ratio...

Check out the 1998 Civic and the 2000 3-series...from a distance in the back and side they have similarities....

And then there are the ever special '5-series Civics'...

It looks okay to me. At least the facelifts (the 5 and 7 series) come out looking better instead of worse.

The rear looks just like the official 3series coup. Its the new rearend which is also close to the 7 series.
