I know most people here aren't too interested in the new BMW's but I think this looks pretty darn good from what I can see

If it isn't the same, then at least it has similarity to the 5 series GT:

As much as i love bmw, I might be leaving it for something else soon, they just started making these retarded looking cars and seems like every new design car comes out it looks sh*tier and sh*itier

It's got a mix of GT, F01 and CS concept in it. But no, it's not supposed to have the same fascia as the GT.

If you ask me, this thing looks fantastic. My first post was a real photo, here's a PS:

Are you sh!tting me? That looks like crap.

Woe the day that BMW ditched the great design of the E39. This is not just nostalgia speaking, I earnestly believe an E39 looks better than an E60 as well as that monstrosity in every single way.

My Ride: my favorite two feet
i think what kills the design isn't the kidney grills it's that god awful "smile" of a front bumper. can someone PS the E60M front bumper? that should help it look much better, my biggest concern is how badly they will ruin the rear of the car...

BMW is sure making it easy to choose other brands these days. Their new styling, or complete lack there of, is terribly boring. If I wanted a boring looking car, I'd buy a Toyota. At least it would be a reliable car. Unless things change, I'd gonna look at Audi or Mercedes Benz.

Thats pretty bad, has the same oversize grills as the new 7. Do you guys know if Bangle had anything to with this or the new 7?
I love my E46 more and more when I see these pics of BMWs "new direction" haha

I think it looks gorgeous. Much more muscular than the E60.

let's not look too much into this car yet... i mean come on, it's a picture where you barely see anything.

I think that if you are a fan of the new E89 Z4, I think you'll also like the F10. Personally, I think that car looks amazing. You really do have to see it in real life to fully appreciate the details.

What is that big mold looking piece at the bottom of the bumper? (In the real picture in OP) It cant be part of the stock bumper can it? It looks like a fukin bulldozer lip.

The lighting makes it look more pronounced than it actually is.

I actually saw the new 7-series on the road last saturday (I'll post pics later)...and I have to say, it looks good in person. Those bigger grills actually look really good in person

Hell I haven't even seen the 7er in flesh yet, but all I can say is that the Z4 looks amazing. The E71 is the same way... that car is so damn good looking
