Should have just stopped making cars with the E39. BMW peaked in 2001, the lineup was perfect, from a 330i Mtech1 all the way to an Imola Red 740i sport with M Parallels, they simply will never top that year with their designs.

love the rear end.

the front end of all the new models will suffer because of the EU regulations so people are too stupid to stay out of the roads and not get hit by cars so lets have all car manufacturers redesign their cars to hurt pedestrians less when they do get hit

Because the state looks at it as, "Why spend money researching why people get hit when we can have everyone else spend the money to develop systems to help save the idiots?! "

Exactly, the E60 looks out of place in that lineup... I hope this is a sign of good things to come

So I guess the next 5 series after this one is going to be a barge, right?

Look at how big that sucker is...why is BMW insisting that bigger is better

One of the few companies to have kept their trademark over their entire lifespan too.
