I am using only the North American lineup:

1. E63 6 Series. (M6 is officially out of production so it does not sadly count).
2. E89 Z4
3. F01 7 Series
4. F10 5 Series
5. E70 X5
6. E92 3 Series

Z4 then F10, E92/E90 (*not* E93), F01, X6 M (aggressive is an understatement for the X5 M/X6 M, especially when it's right in your rearview)

1. Z4, drop dead gorgeous
2. E82 135i or M-Sport package 128
3. E92/90 M-Sport package or M3

The others I don't find particularly good looking, just... ok...

Many people have commented they like the look of the 135 better than the E92/93 in person once they've seen it. I've even heard some say "the 3 series looks like a camry, it just doesn't look like a BMW"

The X6 is hideous, the X5 is a much better looking vehicle.

F10 for sure, followed by the E92 then the E89 Z4.

I was just following one tonight on the highway. The dude wanted to dodge around a bit (nothing serious). I couldn't stop staring.

I know this is the M-Sport but still.

E89 then X6 and F10. I don't feel too attracted to the F01 or E92 and the E90 is butt ugly (although the LCI helped a great deal).

I'm with you on that. I'm actually surprised some people have the 6 series and 7 series ahead of things like the E92 and F10.

For me: F10 5 series, E92 coupe/msport/M3 all perfect, then the Z4 Msport. At first when the new 7 came out I wasnt 100% on it, then I started to really like it and I still do. However, now that the new XJ is on the road I think I have a new favourite.

I think the next 6 series might be on my list soon too when it hits the road. Looks great. Only issue I have is the headlights which are kinda weird.

the LCI E90 M3's

I'd say in no particular order the top 3 are:
E90 M3 (not regular E90)
E92 (all variants)
E70 X5

I'm not a huge fan of the new F10, though I do like the F01

The E82 is not a universally good looking car. I like the looks, but I can see why most people tend to think it's ugly. It's just one of those cars that are polarizing. I don't know anyone who thinks the E82 looks better than an E92 (besides E82 owners). The first time I saw an E92 on the road, I thought it was one of the most beautiful BMW's I've ever seen. The E82 has very strange proportions, but the looks grew on me. I do agree they look much better in person.

E82 would have been one of the best looking bmw if it weren't for those ugly big headlights!!

It's probably a safe bet that anyone who owns an E82 thinks it's better looking than an E92. If it weren't for the awkward rear overhang of the E92 (and the weak looking exhaust on the 335i), I'd put it fairly high on the list.

E90 M3 LCI Sedan followed by the E82. E92 looks like it melted - too feminine.

Z4, X6 and E82 are my favorites. The rest look generic.

The E92 is the nicest, a beautiful design - clean, simple and elegant. The 1-series in the US is killed by the front bumper, which is poorly integrated into the design, and the downward-sloping sideskirts that give it a portly look. The E92 and the new Z4 (the E89) are the only designs I admire from the company right now. I'm ambivalent about the rest - they're not great, but not bad either...

If I had to replace my M Coupe for some reason, it would be with a black or dark blue E92 with saddle interior.
