Hey, watch it.......


My Lancia is basicely also a Fiat, and I dare say it looks nice and agressive (see links below)

I recon the E60 5-series will be nice, but will need a little time to get used to (similar to the E65 7-series).

Remember: a design which everybody likes from day 1 is bound to look oldfashioned and dull very very quickly, and that is also NOT what we want!




As long as I can't afford a BMW, my Italian made/designed Lancia Delta HPE will do! It is family to a Ferrari after all...

Ugly mirrors and shitty-looking exhaust system. These are the parts that bug me the most (of those that can be seen) - and both are unlikely to be in the final version of the E60.

Underneath all that black plastic molding it looks like it has room for HUGE wheel arches

Hi!!
Im really surprised how you take this pictures of 5-series so seriously
The picture on this thread really doesnt show a ****.The whole frontend - wings and hood are plastic cover panels, so is the whole bakend, the only thing I can see is that the middle part looks OK. The rest of the pictures are either drawings or CG pictures made according to what certain designers/illustrators think it will look like!!!Id save my breath untill I see the real thing.
The only thing that seems to be true is that E60 wont be a miniature E65 (according to Bangle+ other big bosses at BMW)

SO HOLD YOUR HORSES!!!!
