i think it looks kinda neat. i like a car that sticks out from the crowd. ( excluding the Pontiac Aztek and Buick Rendezous, don't even think of mentioning those two to me!. ) im a hardcore BMW enthusiast SO THERE!
it kinda looks agressive from the front though!

But if you wanted a wagon...

you would buy one?

Why would you want something in between a wagon and a sedan?

If you're thinking about building a car that size, I think you're just splitting hairs- useless.

I still don't like it for what it is.

Hopefully the front and dash will carry over to the new 5 Series sedan and estate. And that's all I'm going to say.

I'm not saying it's perfect, it isn't. But I find the concept of a spacious grand tourer with decent performance very appealing.
But do you still find it appealing when its ugly as sin and got a ass so fat that a Megane would get jealous?

It's pace and space. I do quite a lot of motorway driving, and I think it'd be brilliant there. Depends on the price though.

what do you want next? assuming you will be buying a car on your own next time.

i think that is the car guy's lament, always searching for what car to buy next, never truly satisfied with the current ride.

I think that's a pretty big problem. When I've driven a car from some months I always start thinking what do I want to drive next, as if I could never be satisfied with the car I drive.

I thought it was just me, but I see that it isn't.

For the next car being able to still drive the Mini I'd want something comfy but with a bit of performance since its main use will be the motorway.

Classic or contemporary?
I am waiting for the first, which my parents assure me will be coming in more than two years, if I'm lucky.

Nope I'm finishing university this year then I'll start working, but I'm not in a hurry. I can still use the BMW until at least late 2010. Then we'll see.
