Don't like it. It's ugly and a BMW should not be a people carrier.

It looks like a 1-series to me (which I don't like the look of either) - am I alone in thinking that?

Agreed. The last thing Beamer needs is a friggin people mover!

I like Chris Bangles work (5 series is horn IMO and so is the boot on the 7 and 6) but that thing just doesn't do it for me...

Looks like s**t, like most of BMW's efforts these days. They've lost the plot.

No way mate! 3 series looks good. Seven is great. Six looks awesome (I even like the boot) Five series is the ducks guts! One is the odd "one" (ha ha) out. Don't like it...

You can't seriously think the headlights on the 5-series and the wonky back end are good! It looks like the stylist was right handed and drew the car with his left! 3-series is just bland as well.. looks like Toyota was subcontracted to style it.

yes u are alone :P

there is a german tuning company called Hartge that made a V8 version of the 1 series. they managed to squeeeeeeeeeeeze the old M5 V8 in there and did their own little thing to it to create the 330kW Hartge H1 V8.
hmmmmm..... lets see...... 330kW + 1000kg + rear wheel drive = bloody fast :twisted:
