Will the next BMW 5-Series have fewer Bangle angles? That's the question 5ers are asking as the midsized BMW heads into a freshening for spring 2007. The answer is a definite maybe, with a side of not really. The mid-cycle changes are subtle. Spies say the most noticable differences will be to the skirt-bound air intakes as well as to the headlights, dashboard and interior design. The big changes are reportedly coming in 2009, with an all-new model that's lighter, more understated and less flame-surfaced.
