To each their own, you know??
It's all subjective and in the eye of the beholder anyway. Whats more important is how I feel behind the wheel and as an esteemed owner of an 5th generation 5er. And I have to admit, it's what keeps me smiling ear-to-ear all the time, even more so when I'm out cruising the highways and biways effortlessly and comfortably at speed. Sure everyone can relate similarly with their own beauties!! YES!
i hate to say this, but when the E60, E65 and E90's all came out, i felt the same way about bangle and his design teams work.
HOWEVER, after seeing them out on the road, my opinion is totally different. i love the E60 and E65 now, and i am starting to like the E90 too. i guess it was just initial shock like the shock a lot of people had when the E36 came out just because it was a bit different. but honestly, it is hard not to like any bimmer!
o, and i loved the E63 from the start! 6's have always been the shiznit!
