Nice comparison pics of M sport of the F31 and E91 LCI.
I don't recall seeing the two side-by-side before. It's really interesting to compare.
Congrats on the new touring and enjoy!

Mineral Grey is such a nice color! Wish that Space Grey from the e9x series was darker, like gunmetal.

Seeing the back of a 3 series touring vs. a 5 series touring still causes me pause. Which is which? In traffic, it's at times difficult to see the difference!

Great comparison photos!

I don't know, haven't seen the F31 touring in real life but!
I still think the E91 is more "manly" looking than the F31. That's just me.

Exaust tip looks better on E91, for all other are better F31. I cannot understand why BMW put so small pipe like on some cheap car?

Thanks for the pics. In a few years I am looking to replace my SAAB 9-5 Wagon and it is going to be F31 in the same color you have.

Did the rear windows come factory tinted or are they aftermarket tint?

looks really good. E91 is aging gracefully.

That is an amazing looking car.

Thanks for posting large, sharp pics.

Mineral grey is the name of that color for your F31, right? It looks very dark in the pics. Is that just the shading?

I was hoping it would be a little lighter like the older wagon in the picture.

(Its all academic right now, since the base f31 isn't even available in the USA. I wonder when spring release will be.)

Thanks,

George

Great pics. I sorta miss the side markers, it almost looks like the F30/31 is missing something.
