Tough crowd here...

I'm reserving judgement til I get to drive one. Hoping to have one to drive in the next couple months.

I hated the E70 when it came out it grew on me somewhat.

I'll reserve final judgement for when I see the F15 in person.

E53 it is not...

Agree. Very similar response documented on this site in 2004 with the LCI, in 2007 with the E70, in 2010 with the LCI....

I don't understand the point of the big holes in the M-Sport bumper than have honeycomb that is just solid plastic. Looks stupid.

I still reserve final judgement until I see the car in person...

I am not completely happy with what I am seeing so far. I loved the e53 at first sight. I also thought the e70 4.8i sport package was absolutely stunning the first time I saw it in pictures or real life. However, I am not getting that feeling with this model. I guess time will tell, but so far it is the least attractive, imo.

I also don't like how the rear of the X3/X5 look so similar.

Saw a fully loaded M Sport yesterday still with the camouflage on it, but I think it looks pretty good in person, allot nicer than I was thinking it would look...

Looks OK, buy not great to me.

The "Reverse 1965 Mustang" styling of the sides seems rather out of place and uninspired.

looks absolutely horrible... reminds me of a chinese mash up / confused version of an X5. The E70 at least has a flow and cohesion. This looks like two separate vehicles photoshopped together...

they've given the waist a higher line and appearance by dropping the lower side kink, raising the upper side kink and creating a slab side....

problem is that it makes the side look bulky and the rear wheels look undersize....

The higher side window line is also a killer for bored little kids who can't see out... we had a hire car like that once and soon found out the problem...

One of the worst BMW's I've ever seen.

I tend to agree with much of the above post, which is why I chose the E70 M-Sport rather than wait for the F15.
