    Looks rather brutish, and lacks the lines of the old "Bavarian Cream" E9: [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Brute is the new aspiration it seems. The E9 is beautiful.

    I can't imagine that new CS sedan has the agility of the old CS. The so-called Batmobile was famous for its ability. If I believe correctly, I think the E9 was penned by Paul Bracq, who was quite adept at graceful designs.

    In it's day it was, that car was actually very heavy for its size. The small, high profile tires didn't help with agility either.

    I like the new styling, I would imagine they are going a similiar route with the upcoming 7 series....prolly trying to get away from the bulbous styling of the current car.

    Wasn't the CS intended as a type of coupe instead of a true sportscar? I think the new one looks like a glorified station wagon.

    This looks better than anything BMW has in its current lineup.

    If Bungle would just stop with the stupidly busy treatment of his cars' flanks already, he'd have a beauty here. The shape's right, the ends are nicely detailed, but the middle is, alas, typical Bungle.

    It's a bit of Aston Martin with Dodge Charger with a really nice backend.

    "a bit", you say?

    The Aston looks better...a lot better.

    Quattroporte still looks better than the BMW.

    I like the Quattroporte and Vanquish, as for this new Bimmer I don't like it now but I'm sure it will grow on me. It just does not look like a BMW.

    It is unquiet and lacks grace.

    Even with Bungle's machete run amok on the sides, this concept is world's better looking than the ugly duckling disgracing the trident. The sad thing is, the 4port looks even worse in person than on the screen. One wouldn't think it possible, but here we are.

    The Aston has a more graceful profile. The rear has a terrific form though.
