By now most of you are probably annoyed by the abundance of spy photos of the 2011 BMW 5 Series, and believe us, we refrained from posting all of them until we get some better, clearer shots. Well today, we’re breaking the rule for two reasons.

One of them is to show you the two types of the kidney grills and second, the Night Vision Camera. As we’ve seen on the new 7 Series, the models carrying the Night Vision System feature less vertical grills and with wider space between them. In this case, the non-camera model has 12 vertical grills (narrower spacing), while the one equipped with the Vision camera features 10 vertical grills.

In the end, it is all a matter of personal choice, when the new 7 launched, some people preferred the kidney grille with narrow space due to its less oversize look, but truth is that many of us will not even notice these differences immediately.

    So far the camouflage has done a pretty good job of disguising the hood shape (bulges/fins/whatever) but I think the picture with the camera shows the hood pretty well. The spy photos haven’t impressed me because so far the car looks pretty tame, but the lines of the hood may give it some more aggressiveness.

    the 5 gt has 9 vertical grills,so 5 series is wider ….my opinion they stretched the grill too much at 5 series,so the upper line its parallel to its the low line of grill,which is not case with 5 gt so it has prettier grill…and also they should make grill more deeper into the car,and not like its just glue at the car,like the gina concept.i dont think this design will keep up for next seven years…the headlights too.the lower line is fine but upper is not aggressive enough…
