when you look at E46, they still look amazing today. E39 and E38 are ugly, i cant even imagine why they looked good back then.

In terms of FRONT end design only...

e92 > e46 (NOT the CSL though)

E39 > E60

E38 > E65 (ALTHOUGH you did pick the worst 7 series pic ever for this comparison)

All the older ones look better than the newer. Same will be said for the Z4.

E46 < E90? Wow. I agree with the second part.

Disagree. Z4 > Z3. New Z4 definitely has the potential to be better. New X5 > old X5.

I think the blood flow cut off to your brain for a second, we'll forgive you this once.

E46 > E92
E39 < E60 (Even though I love them both).
E38 > E65 & all other 7 series.

old X5 FTW

and you should've included a pic of the new 7, not the E65.

IMHO, the 7 series has always been ugly and still is.
