I really cant understand why the whole auto community is making such a big fuss over Bangle, i really feel he is brilliant and he has given BMW the edge in Design. I agree that the older design 7 Series before the present design was a l bit too loud..but it did command attention as compared to the present one
I feel Bangle designs complement the BMW and their heritage.
I always felt that before bangle, BMW lacked that edge in looks which Bangle completed.
Just have a look at the older generation BMW 5 series and compare it to the bangle design.

The earlier BMW designs were conservative and timeless. When the Bangle(d) models were introduced, they were completely different from what would have been expected from BMW. Its like a "Love it or Hate it" design.

I doubt anyone has or will ever by an M5 station wagon in India !
Since this is a sightings thread and there are no reported sightings of an E61 in India (as yet) it has been removed from the title.

I think the first pic has already been posted. Remember seeing it elsewhere. That white M5 looks gorgeous in the pic.

Amazing pictures of an amazing M5 there, Maverick. Does it have any engine tuning or is it only cosmetic, except for the exhaust? IMO, it could have done without the ugly spoiler on the roof. The alloys are brilliant. Car should've been in black though. Absolute stealth mobile it would have been.

Yes there are mods to the Engine as well in the form of K&N typhoon intakes, ECU tuning and exhaust modification.

Didnt quite like the color of that M5. And those wheels and that hood just doesnt go well with the rest of the car.
