OTL did you see the facelifted 5?

What on earth is wrong with the BMW design team??? http://www.worldcarfans.com/news.cfm...elift-revealed

How does that look any better than the current 5?

Hold on to your e92s 'cause it's the last BMW worth looking at. so sad.

For some reason I find that the revised front end makes it look smaller than it is.

The front on the current 5 didn't bother me nearly as much as the rear, and I'm guessing the lack of pictures of the rear means that it's the same, or similar. Now it looks like they're trying to match the ugly-ass panel gaps on the 5's trunk with the clamshell-style front-hood. What are they thinking? Hide the damn lines on the side of the car!

I think it would be fine if it weren't for that lower grill. It looks too high off the ground. Not feelin it.

Looks OK. The lower air damn looks like shit and I'm not sure I like the mirrors either.

Very minor facelift.

Many E46s owners feel their 3er is the last of the decent looking Bimmers.
