well, it depends if you want a replacement for you E39 540i, or a totally different car that can give u some pazaz in your life.
If your looking for something to take the place of the 540i, the new 545i is actually quite great, heeps of power and if you option up for the sports suspension 18inch wheels and sway-bar (aint-roll bar)...its an aswome car to drive. However it looks funny, and your have to be careful wat colour u get it in, because some colour manage to hide and blend in well with the shape of the car, wheras other ones...show the ugliness of the car. But as you stated, u don't like it...
On the other hand, if your looking for a sporty fun car, with decent amount of grunt,, the 330Ci is tip top. The new mercedes CLK-320 is not bad either, but its more of a luxury cruiser than pure sports. You may want to wait a few more months and try out Mercedes' new 3.5L engine, and get the CLK-350, which is around $5000 or so more dearer than a 330Ci, but it packs a hell of a wallop.
