Has anyone seen the 5 Series sales for July. They have tanked.
Only 2,668 versus 5,313 last year which was an out going model.

Where did you see this?
Personally, I don't like the body style, not even the upcoming M5 with spoilers and stuff. I know the 3 series will start looking the the new 5 series very soon... The rear of the car doesn't look Europen anymore, more like Japanese design...

Keep in mind that because 2004 included a significant styling change that the 2003 models were sold at deep discounts. I'm sure that this artifically inflated the 2003 figure. Also, on the same report you will notice that the 3 series sales are significantly short of the 2003 numbers as well (with no styling change)! Also, there was no 6 series available in 03 and no 5 series wagons available in 04. You can't just look at one figure and make a solid conclusion about anything, lets not even bring into the equation the economic factors that impact car sales across the board.

Just my two cents

Um, Bangle is just trying to keep up with everybody else. If BMW still made cars that had the e30 look to them, only a group of us would buy them... new customers never would.

And also, it was that same Chris Bangle that designed the E46 and E46 M3 which is a beautiful car in and out.

I agree - but there is a lot of people on other forums and in general really, which say they hate bangles new styling and would not consider buying one of his cars.

Personally I'm indifferent sometimes I like e60's sometimes I don't - But I love the Z4 (A Bangle creation).

In England things are probably a bit different - Brand new 5's are usually the purchase of high flying exec's or older "already made it" folk who are after a nice bit of style and comfort. I don't think the new e60 is being taken up by the latter at all, as the styling is much too aggressive for their gentle tastes.

I would say, however, I feel sad I'll never be able to buy a Brand new E39 as to me these are by far the best looking of the 5 serie.
