My favorite is the E39, with the E34 being a close second, then the E60.. I don't really care for the styling of the E12 and E28. My least favorite is the F10, being that it was the first generation where it was built on the same platform as the 7-series. The performance numbers of the F90 are staggering, but I haven't really formed an option of it quite yet.

F90 is ridic.
E28 and E34 were probably the last of the reliable ones.

E39 is the best looking.

I'd like an E34, 39, 60 and F90 (for the seats).
