Because of these two great designers, I am reminded that there is still a such thing as automotive design. Not all may like what they have done with BMW, but there is no denying that it would be a blessing to the industry if the care and concern paid by Bangle and Van Hooydonk to BMW designs could be replicated by more designers in other companies. They are truly brilliant people that aren't appreciated enough in the automotive industry today.

I half expected some nonsense, Bjork-esque babble, coming from these two loons.

I'm about to enter my final year of uni and this is basically the make-or-break point. I've really been struggling to get back on track during summer break. Some part of me is saying "why are you even <i>on</i> break?" God only knows what's in store for me after graduation.

There's no denying the 3er is a benchmark for sports sedans. No denying that the Proportions are great, and the surfaces are beautiful - at least on the 3er. But some of the detailing is plain ugly. Like the headlamps, and those ocassional - totally useless side fins with an inserted BMW logo, as seen on a Z4. Thats the kind of thing that itches me.<p>Still, the 3er is trully beautiful. Its such a shame they put runflat tires, iDrive, and the Dullest interiors EVER. <p>Why couldn't they just design a proper interior?<p>Oh, and why does the Wagon have to be so Useless?
