Saw a new 5er GT yesterday. Its way bigger than the current 5. Looks like the younger sibling of the X6. It also has a massive slab of a front end and grill.

When the F10 model 5 series is launched next year I think it will blend in a little more! My mate spent 2 days last week driving the new X1 and the 5 GT. He says the 5 er is an awesome car, especially in 535i guise

Planning to sit in the new X1 in Dick Loves It this weekend. Hopefully a test drive soon.

At least the 5 Gt is a step in the right direction .... even thou I have a E92 I'm no fan of the current lines ups styling.

The last E46s where bang on the money IMHO

I remember jeezer clarkson describing the panels on the (then) new 5 series as slab sided like a black rhino. its not really grown on me.

That is just a photoshopped 3 series with the 5 GT back 'grafted on'

The only hatch I think you will see will be on the next generation 3 series which is the red car above - only a 'render' but they do tend to be pretty accurate.

a 5 door hatch would be too much like an Insignia or Mondeo and IMO not suited to the 'junior executive'! The E91 isn't your typical estate car and is more like a hatchback anyway so why bother.

I don't get why BMW are trying to create niche Markets to sell their cars in. For example the X6
