the new mirrors make it look like dumbo. that's a big plus on the 2006-08 e90 after the dull ones shared with the previous 5 series on my old e46 sedan (that never matched the sleeker e46 coupes). bet they don't use these new ones on the 2010 coupe.

apart from the shape of the rear tails, I really don't like any of it.

I like it ... great to see some pics.
My current E90 is coming up to 3 years old ... maybe time to place an order for the new one!

Agreed.

The look of the hood is growing on me. Originally, I thought that was the only drawback, but now I think the car looks better all around.

The hood will be just that much harder to polish now -- guys like me will tend to fling polish / dust around a bit near the raised edges.

I think this new hood is going to grow on the majority of people, especially when we all see it in person! To me it gives the car a more aggressive look...

I've come to really like the refreshed sedan. So much so, I canceled my e92 order for one.

I would do the same thing.

Actually, best thing to do would be wait a year for the e92 refresh.

Other factors in my life contributed to the change of heart as well. I'm expecting a baby in late October and I couldn't justify having an e92 and a Mini Cooper with the baby on the way. Before the 09 refresh, I hated the look of the e90, especially the rear lights. The refresh made it so that I didn't go buy an A4.
