I think it is 5 Series F10. It could be the xDrive version, and the same goes for te 5 GT F07, it is xDrive version. The other car is surely 6 Series F12, it looks more as Coupe than Convert.

I had a feeling it was going to have that head light style... simply because the e90 sport looked a bit like the e39 sport... the black line tailights... rear bumper style.. or a few other things i can't remember, but it always made sense to pass on down to the lower class model features from the previous gen of the upper classs

I don't have high hopes for this sedan... I expected it to be big as the a4. It looks the same size as e90 if not smaller.

The front is just too blunt and the kidneys dont transition well into the hood like they do on the E9x.
That was my first impression of the 750. For whatever reason, BMW is going with a Volvo XC90 look to the front of every new model. Maybe there is a mechanical reason for doing so, but it doesn't look good. It's not like they care about what people think anyway.

This car is starting to look more and more like a baby 5 series to me and I think that is to sedate for me. I like the Bangle cars better. Just like Audi, all of the BMW's will look the same. It will be nice for sure, but not to exciting.

Right. See this F30 vs. E90 size comparison for a better idea: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=333749

Very interesting, the test centre is located "fairly" close to where my folks live. Maybe should take a sneak around there next time aim up.

I strongly believe the new 3-series looks like the 6-series on a smaller scale.

Looks huge and heavy. Whatever. With Bangle gone we are back to "one sausage in different lengths".
