Bangle BMW's - Page 4

post #46 of 81
I just noticed something about the picture of this 335:



I think they just used motion blurs to make the wheels look like they're in motion but for some reason (branding?) didn't blur the BMW logos in the center of the wheels.

Um...Brian, that's a 650i.

Although the BMW 3.0CS coupe was introduced in the early '70s. And I suppose some of the early '70s MGBs are rather nice.

yes, there were some good ones, incuding the original countach from '75.

as for jaguars, i liked the coupe they had in the '80s. i would consider it a true jaguar, especially the v12 version.

The XJ-6 until the risible XJ-40 came out was a true Jag. Functionally it wasn't too different from Sir William Lyons' XJ-6 Series-1. It had the XK engine, the IRS with inboard rear disks, and the same basic interior. The lines were cleaned up by Pininfarina and IMO the best-looking of the XJ-6 line. I think it died in 1985 or 1986.

I'm not sure about the XJ-S. It was technically designed by Sir William Lyons, but it's also so...Camaro-like.

To me, they represent the pinnacle of BMW's engineering and design.

it's a beauty. i don't like what they did to the bottom one though. "MTV, pimp my M1!"

That's a competition version, so the pimp quotient goes up some.

Yes, yes.. large spoilers and wings do actually serve a purpose on certain vehicles. Although ugly, my car has a spoiler and big wing, and when I track my car, I am very thankful for it.

no way man. no one hates camaros (and firebirds, and mustangs) as much as i do, and the xj-s does not look anything like them.

The XJ-S is commonly called the Jaguar Camaro, and while I agree the form is different the gestalt is very similar.

I didn't like them at first, but they've all grown on me a little bit except for the 5-series. If that thing came out with a Pontiac badge, not only would I expect it, but the auto press would be poking fun at it.

I was next to a black E66 760Li today at the stoplight, and I had to admit the grill looks perfect. It is the only part of the car that looks like it evolved from the E38. At the same time, the first E66's (pre-facelift) did not carry the same grill; the gill carried by the E65 looked like it came from outer space. Jon.

What do you think of the new M coupe and M6? Design wise I actually like both of them. http://autos.msn.com/advice/article....tentid=4024014

I like the M6 more, it looks more balanced. The M coupe reminds me of the head of a platypus.
