    Wasn’t there a video of this same car – pulled over by the Polizei on the Autobahn?

    I hope that’s a faux Bangle butt.

    Looks disturbingly like a cross between a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville and a 2005 Subaru Legacy.

    @revolver1978: The car has substantial plastic cladding front to back, on every body panel except the roof, thus giving no idea of the car’s true looks except for the overall proportion. Considering this, I wonder how you come to your conclusion.

    Probably because a 2001 Bonneville had substantial plastic cladding front to back on every body panel except the roof…

    Just sayin.

    Overall, I think it looks rather longer and sleeker than now apart from the bonnet (hood) which looks bulbous, probably to comply with pedestrian safety legislation.

    I have always thought that BM’s strict 7 year product cycle is a little odd though. Just as we were getting used to the “old” 5er they bring out a new one.

    The current E60 5 Series has been the longest 6 years of my life.

    So that is what the 2011 Altima is going to look like.
