Just saw the new 5er

One of only two on display in the US, it looks so much better in person than in pictures! Long and low, very rounded. In pictures it kinda looks like a big 3er or small 7er. I think this is just about the perfect BMW. This car is on display at the Spartanburg plant, so if you take a plant tour today or tomorrow, you can see it. Wow

Schön. Given how I've been impressed by the 7er, I hope the 5er can follow in its footsteps of comfort, elegance, and efficiency.

It's definitely going some time getting used to it. When the E60 came out, I thought I would never let my E39 go. I hated the E60. However, over time it grew on me and now I look at the E39 and think it's so dated.

I think with some nice wheels, M-Tech kit and some shadowline trim, the car has potential. However, at this point, I am not a fan. Time will tell, but then again, I'm planning on going right into the F10 M5 when that becomes avail in a couple of years, so I guess I better start liking it. Hahahaha!
