5 series is good looking good, especially with M.styling.
3 series E90 is a disaster because of the rear end especially, E91 not quite as bad but not very good design either, both can be OK with nice wheels and M-styling. Audi and Mercedes is far better designed with A4 and the C-class.
E92 is very good looking, both with and without M-styling, but Audi A5 is a seriously good looking rival.
1 series is cool compared to the competition.
X5 is nice.
X3 is bad.
In general the Bangles did a lousy job on the 7 series and the E90/E91/X3.
The 1,5,6,X5 and E92 are winners in their segments.
Its really not forgivable to miss the way they did with E90/E91, those models are far to important for BMW, but since those machines are the best drivingmachines in their class by far they sell well anyway.
It is all subjective.
I'd take e90 rear over e92 any time. E92 rear is just...nice but weak...
I'd take e92 front over e90 any time...
But I must say e46 M3 -- the best looking Bimmer ever IMO...
