From what I read, the car is a but wider, and about 5 or 7 inches longer than the e60 which is nothing for a car. I do hope that it does not feel too big. I like the e60 because of how easy it is to maneuver. It feels so easy and nimble. Can only hope the f10 carries that same feel.
Incorrect. The F10 is less than 2 inches longer than the E60. See Wikipedia.

5-7 inches is a massive amount for a car...think X3 to X5.

The F10 is 200lbs heavier though, which is what does detract a bit from the nimbleness. That said, the chassis is better equipped to handle the weight and torque is monstrous.

Go drive another one.
