Thanks Chris, you did do a great job. The E60 still looks like a modern car!

Where's he going? and why?
Should we wait until he designs his new car somewhere out there before we all jump into our new F10s...?
I hope he doesn't leave for Kia or Tata... (oopss, sorry: Jaguar.... )

Well, revolutionary minds usually stay in one place at most 5 years before moving on to other bigger things... He's been at BMW quite a while so I'm sure he's just bored.....
