Looking at this car from a design standpoint, I still can't get used to the rear end of this car. It doesn't look right and the lines don't flow with the rest of the car. Some might say "wait until you see it in person" I have... it looks even worse in person.

That color palette deeply needs red/orange &/or red-orange color combos

I hope they can at least improve it a bit in the LCI.

All matter of taste and personal opinion. I don't like the black grill too, but the rest of the car: YES please!

Very big car. Having a 5er now and struggle to put down the solid 600 hp, AWD would be the answer, but seriously going from a 3 to 5 is a huge diff. I figure that either I will get the next gen M3 as replacement or a 911 TTs. The power is great but the size is not. Plus it eats tires for snacks. Will have to wait a bit.

The introduction overhere was last Friday but I didn't have the time to attend to that introduction. So I went to my dealership this afternoon, outside were 4 G30s and inside two. At first I thought the car next to my car(pic) was a 7 series

Such a big but beautiful car nontheless.

Cheers
Robin

I feel for those that like the design cues of the 7-Series (G12), but can't handle the LWB, this would be a good compromise. And if you thought the technology in the 7-Series was good, wait until you see the 5-Series iDrive 6.0!
