I like it. I have seen some ugly renders but none of the legit spy shots have turned me off yet. My only outstanding question is how that radar will be integrated into the front grille, but that's not really likely to sway me one way or the other at this point. Probably will go for the B58 version w/ xDrive.

Not liking how they integrated the radar with the grille but Iíll wait to form a full opinion once we see the whole front end revealed.

Rear looks fine.

I like the rear even though it slightly reminds me of the Camry. Iím not sure how/why that happened.

Thankfully, they were able to decrease the size & weight, keep the luxury, respect traditional features, reduce exterior fluff as well as righten any illogical lines. This might be the best 5-series ever made. I am optimistic.

Looks promising.
Is the grille now a dealer-installed PDI item?

Itís not like any of ďiĒ grills have really gone with convention when it comes to their comparative ICE model so no surprise here.

Expected more from the tail lights design, this is too sleek almost. Not obnoxious, just seems slightly conservative/lazy. Front end would tell us how it all looks better together

I hope the i5 sells like hotcakes because I can't stand seeing the same boring EVs on the road over & over. Except for the Taycan, that thing is gorgeous.

Mounting radars too low does not result with the same coverage for autonomous L2+/L3 driving. A huge challenge with sedans.
