Well the new M5 has not really peaked my interest yet.....to be perfectly honest the old M5(E39 platform) was not eye opening enough to truly catch my attention(aside from the engine specs)
the way an M3 does. I think it is one of those things that will have to "grow" on the current crop of BMW owners. I guess now we will see who is really hardcore BMW lovers and who is not.
For me the new 6-series is starting to look intriguing. And the M6 should be really interesting to see.
Camouflaged or not, I think it still looks amazing. I think the new 5 looks great, for those of you who don’t, let it grow on you. The current E39 in my opinion though is the best 5 series design out of all of them, I too wish they wouldn’t change it but life must go on. BMW is bound to soon run out of design options. I mean, if somebody handed you the current 5 series, which for about 8 years has been (and still is) the perfect sedan in every aspect, what in the hell would you do? No matter how you redesign it, people will naturally get pissed at whatever you do with it. The bottom line: get used to it, we have no choice.
Kinda looks like when the Chrysler bought into Benz. The Benz's started looking like American cars and the American cars started to look like jaguars and MB's. Now the BMW's are looking like Toyota Corolla's.
