    The car it self is ugly, they lifted the tail lights from subbie. I've never been a fan of BMW and the looks of this car aren't changing my mind. I am sure it will be a blast to drive but I don't really want to spend the kind of cash required to own one on a car that looks that nasty.

    That engine is awesome.

    Wow.

    Wowowowowowowow.

    I, also, am not a fan of BMW's.

    But that thing is hot. Body, engine, everything. I've always been attracted to sedans, and the new M5 is no exception.

    I need one.

    7-speed transmission? Yes please!

    That's only a concept car- it's not a series-produced car.

    so... hmm although that is a pretty stout motor... the car still weighs about 3900 lbs..... being that these things have so many traction controls... wouldnt someone figure out that weight is a bad thing?

    It cool and everything but I have to say that I dont think that i would actually own it... but thats just my opinion.

    so when does the new m5 debut in america?

    anyone know around how much it will cost?


    what are the performance stats of ....say a 530i (new) ?

    unlike you guys, im in love with the new 5 series body style....

    i was driving down by the beach today and saw some yuppie in his brand new 530i. i caught him as i was slowing down from about 20 miles an hour, and the ass end just caught my attention and the lines on that car just flowed to perfection.

    thinking about leasing one....

    I'm a huge fan of the last generation m3 (e36?), and not as big of a fan of the new styling. But it's still sick.


    That thing takes it to a whole new level.

    Meh, the new BMWs are getting really ugly. There were at their prime before that one american dude started designing their cars.
