    • BMW attempting to fix the mess that is the F07 5-Series GT with a major styling facelift - Spyphotos

      The 5-Series GT is awful. Yes, awful. It's ugly, it doesn't sell, it's a flat out disaster and hopefully one that is costing BMW tons of money so they pull their head out of the sand. BMW is determined to force a round peg into a square hole and so will be giving the F07 5GT a major styling refresh. Will it work? Will it somehow change BMW already declaring the 5GT a failure and one of their former executives stating they wished they kept the 5-Series wagon instead? Doubtful.

      So the car is getting a new front bumper design with modified headlights. The front was never the problem it's that spectacularly ugly rear end. It seems the rear is getting some major new changes with a new hatch design, taillights, and rear bumper.

      Frankly, BimmerBoost doesn't care. BimmerBoost hopes this refresh fails and BMW can light the stupid thing on fire and push it off a cliff already. Get back to making drivers cars BMW before you lose the rest of your diehard fans...

        They could put flamethrowers and machine guns on it and it would still be FUGLY!!!! Seriously, who at BMW looked at the Pontiac Aztek (I call it the Pontiac Asscrack) and said: "Hmm, we need to make one of those"?

        It's a dumb idea, I don't understand who would buy the gt version, with such a small market share, why even put the money into developing that car? If BMW is going to lose money developing cars, at least make limited edition m cars, like a z4 with a s65, or a csl/ltw e92 m3....

        I don't get the x6 either, has anyone seen that top gear episode where the x6 can't even climb a hill that's covered in wet grass? It's not a suv, it's like a sporty minivan

        The X6 is like a more stylish X5. It makes sense as people want it for the looks.

        The ONLY X6 I've seen that looks good is the one belonging to the member here that posted asking for performance mods for his X6M. The standard X6 is as much a styling disaster as the 5 series GT.

        I think the X6 is much better looking than the 5GT and I wouldn't call it a styling disaster like that car:
