I don't like the current 6-series much. I'm more of an M5 man, myself. This one is a bit better, but the design is too busy, I don't like it much either. The nose is better on this one and the overall shape is better, without those bulbous hips, but I'm just not digging it. I do like the new 7-series renderings and I hope the 5-series looks more like that, than this.
Sorry, I got ago against most of the group here and say that thing is ugly. I do not like it at all. I just think there are so many better looking cars than that. I would much prefer the Maserati GranTurismo to that.
However, at least they went for a bold look rather than down the middle. I much prefer designs that are polarizing. This one just doesn't do it for me.
the rearend is nice eough looking, but what happened to the front? the headlights look retarded, along with their twin port holes-just looks kinda wacked out to me. and i'm not sure that i like the dual pod on the dash.
I think the current 6 is the weekspot in the BMW lineup. This is coming from a diehard coupe fan also. I think this new one is a major improvement but I will need to see more pictures to really get a feel for it, and even better yet see one in person. A lot of cars look better in person than on camera but I feel that the past 6 series is the polar opposite of that. It looks great on camera but very feminine in person, which is not usually good for a coupe.
