BMW were showing off their new BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo in Stuttgart yesterday, which looked rather nice. I was going to take photos, but got waylaid.

....and it is a far betting looking motor than the saloon (IMO)

Having driven the E250 I have to say, as one would expect, what a real pleasure it was. However it had that awful (IMO) 'man made' leather trim which detracts from the usual and expected MB ambiance, but you pays your money etc etc.

So can we expect to see some pics from you in November? ;)

To be quite honest, at the moment I much prefer the looks of the 211 series I have now. I get pleasure from what is to my eye a very beautiful design from every angle.

Maybe in a year or two I'll think differently.

It has. But this is the official launch and with lots of detail.

I doubt it, the 212 saloon has none of the design flare that the 211 has. IMO it is far to angular to be considered a 'beautiful design' albeit it is, allegedly, in keeping with the design guru's approach to the current styling of today's cars.

As I said the new 212 estate does look far better than the saloon and carry's off the design very well, perhaps that is down to the angular shape after all.
