    I like it! It actually looks as if there is a proper boot too...

    Stunning indeed. Maybe the best looking Touring model ever made by BMW. E91 was the all time Touring king for BMW, but it's about to change.

    Very, very good looking. One oif the most striking details so far is the awesome shape of the Hofmeister Kink......inifinitely better than the E61.

    wow very impressed, the proportions are perfect. I'm a fan of the treatment of the rear, never seen that sort of numberplate recess on a BMW before

    as said above the execution of the kink is brilliant, so fluid. F11 looks more like a sportback than a touring, love everything about it

    Same as the sedan looks like a larger 3 very boring.

    Sorry it isn't a Mercedes Benz, but that looks nothing like the 3 Series Touring. Boring? Give me a break. Slap a three point star on that design and you would be praising it to high heaven.

    I still say that BMW shouldnt make wagons..they just cant do it right..
    But given that fact..this is by far their best try to date..

    That's pretty much what I thought. In my eyes, BMW is definitely back on the same sausage, different lengths bandwagon. I really have no problem with that, but I do prefer a different brand of sausage. :D

    The latest 3er wagon looks ok. The rest no so much. I agree that something on this F11 looks kinda wrong. But I don't know what. Yet, it's much better than I expected.

    The E Class wagon looks much better, hands down.

    :t-cheers:

    Seriously ? I always thought that Merc wagons looked more like utilitarian cars than classy looking wagons a la BMW - Alfa.

    Yes, I never like the Bimmer wagons. I find the A4/A6 wagon, 159 wagon and Saab 9-3 wagon, to be very good looking and classy wagons.

    The E-Class wagon looks more like a practical wagon, rather than a classy wagon, but after all, this is the point of a wagon. Being practical.

    I recall some conversations I had with owners of the E46 estate and E91, and all of them criticised the lacking amount of added boot space compared to the saloon/sedan. Now, given the "sportback" slope of the new 5er Touring, I'm afraid the F11 might have turned out the same. Not to mention the never-ending story of rear end visibility.
    Nevertheless, I've always been a fan of BMW's 5er Tourings and loved the E61.

    What the? I don't like that rear o_O Well, guess I'll get used to it. We were gonna buy this touring in autumn but I dont reckon that my dad likes the rear either :( I just hope he does, cause then it would be quite certain we're going to buy this. Maybe a 530da, or a 520da... Well we can only wait til my dad sees the pictures, maybe in June or later...
