I like the look!

I'd love to see a comparo with the E39.
Everytime I park my car next to an E60, I am astounded at how much bigger the E60 looks (and is).

The thickness in the bonnet and overall size almost make the E39 look like an 8 series!!
If the new M5 is bigger again, then I will feel I'm driving a go-kart

Having said all that, the one thing I've never grown to like in the last two generations of BMW styling is the straight bonnet line.
All my cars have the kidneys incorporated with the bonnet, and the lines seem to flow so much better from the front.
This time the roundel isn't even on the bonnet!!

I guess there is no way back now.
