It will be interesting to see how this optimism on the part of BMW impacts the new 5 Series pricing.

For me, I'd like to see the comparison of the E60 sales vs F10 sales!

One part of the article that I found interesting was when the analyst opined that the similarity in style of the new 5 to the 7 might rob some sales of the 7. That may be partly true, but it might also cost sales of the 5 itself. If I wanted a 7 I would have bought a 7. I liked the styling of the 5 much better so I bought the 5. I really wish the redesign was not a smaller clone of the 7.

I don't think it will impact it too much. With the new 740, there will be some price overlap anyhow.
