I played around at work using MS Paint (yeah, yeah, it ain't optimum) and had a larger version of this on my desktop about 6 months ago. My boss has a 533 and after about a week he noticed it and said "What the..."

In any case, there is already a coupe version of the 5-series out there: it's called the 6-series. I think the 5-series would be way too boxy for a coupe version and would have competed with the 6-series too much.

I love my 630, but for pure driving pleasure, I'll take my 528i or e any day. I just happen to prefer two doors.

So, how much do you think it would cost to move the center post back 6 inches and lengthen the front doors accordingly on these renditions of e12 and e28 coupes. Anyone game?

(Ready for the flames!!)
