BMW styling has gone downhill. Sadly, not even M cars are spared these days.

Being that we all bought Subaru's what does it say about our sense of styling. I for one didn't buy a Suabru because it was handsome. Sure the styling grew on me as time went on. I guess kinda like people with ugly children. How does the saying go "only a face a mother could love."

The Bangle-izing of BMW has turned the 3 series into a mess. 5 series isn't so bad, and the M6 looks pretty cool, but both the M5 and M6 are some hefty bitches!

Yeah, but BMW's are supposed to look good.

I personally like the old M5 better. It's more classic-looking and unassuming.

The previous M5 was okay looking but as a whole the 5 series never sat well with me. The old 3 series and 7 series were pretty sweet looking. The old 5 series looked too generic in comparison.

Now all three of them look like ass. If I had to rank I'd say new 3 > new new 7 > old new 7 > new 5.

The upcoming Z4 coupe still has some hope though.

That's cause it kinda looks like a Porsche.

To me:

New 5 > New 7 > New 3> New 6.

The new 5 is just sexy...

No kidding. Even the once beautiful 3-series is FUGLY now. With all of those sharp edges, the cars look cheap and made of plastic.

if anyone wanted to see it now you'll have to wait for a chance to see it on the streets. it was delivered to us at the dealer about 11am, and delivered to the customer at 6. he waited around all day while they got it ready. nice car though I expected more 6ish exhaust soounds or maybe viper-ish, but it's a very smooth quiet car. I'd take teh E39 M5 instead.
