Thanks for sharing! Looking sleek! I will most likely get one as soon as they are available.

Carry over of the 7 series cockpit combined with a hopefully more sporty suspension setup does it for me

Is it just the angle in this pic or is that a bit of a fast back roofline in the back?

I have to imagine it's just the angle.

I'm sorry, did you say engines? i5 is all electric. Speculated to be available in two trims, the basic rear-drive eDrive40 model and M60 xDrive with dual motors. Range and power efficiency is still unconfirmed, but BMW claimed that the base model 2024 BMW i5 eDrive40 would go about 295 miles on a single charge and the M60 xDrive was thought to do about 250 to 290 miles.

The stunning E39 is definitely Long Gone... But no hey, the new 5 doesn't have the ugly Bugs Bunny buck tooth grill either.

I'll give it a B+ for now. Possible upgrade pending full reviews & photos.

Door handles are such a small detail, but the flat look takes so much away from the current generation of BMWs

There is a good chance this will be the same body used for the next 5 series with petrol engines. I would of course like to see more but not a bad design. It kind of looks like the grill has the shark nose. Maybe just wishful thinking.

Hard to distinguish in traffic as a 5 Series BMW.

E39 looked like a bloated turtle, and all of the V8 cars, M5 included, had crap steering and drove like a wet noodle. Flame suit <on>.

Excited for the G60, looks decent in these photos but they're from an odd angle. I'm sure it'll be a home run.

I like the design of the G60 as well (see my comment above).
And I guess we differ on the design of the E39. I wasnít referring to handling, engines, etc - just the overall design.

This is just terrible. God, i cant believe how bad this is. There is no muscle whatsoever. Hopefully there are better pictures. My M5 deposit might go towards a M3 I guess.
