am I the only one?

One of the most interesting aspects to me is the Bigger but Lighter engineering feat by the BMW engineers. This new model is bigger in almost every dimension but is lighter than the outgoing model (depending on engine chosen). That's a pretty damn cool accomplishment.

As far as the looks - I prefer the 2009-2011 E90 on the outside. That right there is the perfect 3 series sedan look to me. This new model has some quirky exterior features and proportions. I'm not sure they should have tried to squash the new 5 series down into the 3 series nose/bumper section. It seems a little off but I like the aggressiveness of the grille and lights. The live pics look great though overall.
