2014 BMW 5 Series



It's time for the 5 series useless and almost invisible changes. At least it doesn't ruin anything.
Especially on the hatchback GT version where the new tail lights look a lot better.
Otherwise, it's mostly more chrome here and there. I guess this will appeal better to the Chinese market...

A new model for the US is the 535D. The 3.0 Liter diesel produces 255HP and 413 lb-ft of torque. Which should be quite fun to drive.

What a non-update... then again even when these German car companies claim complete redesigns, it's still hardly anything noteworthy.

Is the GT still for sale in the US? Those tail lights make a world of difference somehow...it looks so much better...at least from that angle.

The GT is a truely remarkable machine. Style is ot as sveldt as the A7; but it has a better dash, better handling AND a SMOOTHER RIDE (which is nothing short of a miricle). Styling is it's achiles heel, but then who ever bought a German (or Japanese) car for their styling anyway. I look foward to the new "tweeks"!

Mercedes is the only one whose cars actually look different from cycle to cycle.

I don't know what people are expecting. Automakers change bits and pieces every year. It's not reasonable to assume they'd make drastic changes to a car that was just launched a couple years ago and is selling well.

I prefer subtle changes vs drastic ones. It's called evolving. Something successful should do exactly that. It works for BMW , Porche and the VW golf/gti. Look what happened to the once successful and once class leading Nissan Maxima for example (it's latest iteration being a bloated altima with a crappy cvt and junk build quality) or any car that was drastically changed after a successful generation.

It looked nice before, and the changes are subtle. Too expensive for what it is.
