Oooooo I like very much

The front end has changed and the rear lights look sooooooo much better, thanks for the pics when does it come out? Only thing I think are a little out of proportion are the wing mirrors why are they so massive?!

What are paddles?!

I think the rear lights look worse - I don't like the angular bonnet either - it might grow on me though.....

The new mirrors are required to watch 75+ disappearing out of your exhaust pipes everytime you drive.

Neil, I thought you were referring to the oversized wing mirrors being used to paddle across the lake.

They are pig ugly......I guess the yanks will like them then

Love the angular bonnet, am I the only one?

Hate the big wing mirrors

Ah, gear shift paddles, I don't do them, Porscha cars have no paddles but a third pedal Anyone think Autos are getting more and more popular? Or is it just me?!

No offence intended SoYank as you do seem to spend time here so you get the UK/Euro thing. But I can only spend no more than 10 to 15 mins at a time reading yank threads..... is it just me?

I like it, better than I expected.

Do you think it'll offer Drive n' Surf like the new 7-series...

Is that a serious picture or has it been photochopped?

The front on one looks odd,but the rest look like normal publicity shots.The 7 series is publicity shot.Looks like something out of the 1970's!

Also great that it has 7-speed DCT option. I may need one of these.

The new E90 shots are for a SE - Does anyone have shots for a M Sport.

The rear lenses look like they are US spec as they are all red. Not sure if i like that look.

That 7 series shots look ok - better than now but still a bit odd.

M-Sport will be similar, with the exception of the slab of grey plastic at the rear!

Forget the car. How do they manage to take such stunning photo's? I have a Nikon D80 slr, and I simply cannot get pictures like that however hard I try.

Has anyone else ever noticed how the cars in the BMW catalogues and adverts are always lowered.

the new rear LEDS's are a welcome adition, allthough the back does remind me of another car now, not too sure which. The new bonet looks a little radical, i think they may have gone over the top with the harsh line/angles.
