Oh, new 5 series sedan has double wishbone front suspension.
Gents, the days of McPherson struts are numbered. Apparently the F01/2 7 series and current X5/6 have this double wishbones too.
I'm looking at some nice pics of the F10 5er and I must say, I'm impressed. Its very attractive and thinterior is too. They're saying it didn't grow too much either. Longer wheelbase, but just about the same length as the E60, but wider and not as tall, so drag coefficent stays the same, and weight almost the same too, thru the use of aluminium alloy trunk, hood, doors, fenders and suspension.

Looks like the 5 will still be full of win.

maan that is one ugly azz car. saw one at the stealership the other day. toooo wide and ugly in the front for a 5 series. The regular 5 series like the e60 is round with beautiful headlights(lovely rear lights, and overrall design)...this one is hideous. The back is even worse it looks like a damn hyundai santa fe hatch.
bmw deserves it...they screwed up once again. The new 7 series looks ridiculous also. Front is agressive...but the rear looks like they got tired of designing the car and just left it unfinished.
