Wow you seriously need some glasses to even remotely say those taillights look anywhere close to what the e92's look like. Other then being red I see no resemblance.

From the side, it really looks like an evolution of the current BMW E90. Even the wheels resemble 162s.

Come around the front though. What an awful looking car. Volvo ish with a Maserati grill.

I agree, the taillights look like an Aston Martin, but the lower area of the rear looks like a Lexus LS460. The front looks like a blend of the newer VW and a Subaru.

But the worst feature is that knob shifter. That has got to go!

Their kink has been around for a while too. The original XJ has a kink as well.

I like this car. As for the AM comparison, i paraphrase the great Jeremy Clarkson: If someone tell you look too much like Brad Pitt, would you complain about it?

I saw the preview vid about the XF. When you get into the car (comfort keyless start standard) the start button would pulse red. Press it then the shifter would rise from the center console from its flush position and the covered air vents would rotate and show themselves. Pretty damn cool for a starting ritual.
