1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    actually, it doesn't look TOO bad... i don't like the current one series... it looks too feminine.

    bmw marketing towards girls with the 1 series?

    It's pretty damn ugly. BMW has been really off the mark with this current generation. At the same time Audi and MB seem to be on a tear with their designs. I guess time and sales numbers will tell the truth.

    So far BMW is leading.... and the current A8 is also not the most beautiful car.

    This 1 Series is really bad-looking though...

    This may be the design that makes the Bangle-haters wish he'd come back.

    The new 1-series is definitely uglier compared to the previous gen... but that hatchback/wagon is actually a very practical city car that has to have, I assume, some great performance numbers for its class.

    Looks like the pigs in Angry Birds. Maybe someone should make a vinyl wrap based on that.

    ImageWIS: too bad the actual production version is hideous and looks nothing like that artsy rendering. (just the 5 series not the M5)
