The Idea from BMW seem to fine,but why did they have to link the 5 series tag to it.They should have named/ positioned it into a completely new territory.

I'm not sure why BMW seems to think its X6 design is a success. I just hope we don't see the day when this design progresses onto 7 series as well!

Totally have to agree with you on that! The X6 is rubbish, in my opinion. But taking the design up to other cars is not the best way to go.
