I don't know, I like the 545 Bimmers.. Yes the back of the new 5 and 7 series is hideous, but the car drives like a dream. Maybe it's just 1 to grow on...

I like it. Reminds me of the Z8 in a lot of ways for some reason. The body style will take some getting used to, but I think it will grow on me.

M5 = Ass Kicker :bow:

Why did they cancel the M5 a few years back? 400HP, what was wrong with it?
Isnt it obvious? 400 HP is wimpy :crazy: ...the new one is suppose to have a V10 with around 500HP.

That, and they retired the E-39 platform.

First the angel eyes, now the eyebrows ... I like :thumbup: Pretty soon there'll be after market head lights for these two features. BMW is treading unknown water with these designs, and I think I like it :bow:

It probably won't do 200 mph due to aerodynamic drag.

The Phaeton has a low Cd, because its a luxury boat. The M5 is a performance sedan, so it must sacrafice some Cd (thus, top end) for some mechanical downforce.
