Guess who made Yahoo's top 6 Ugly Cars???

http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/auto...need-makeovers

From the article:

The Los Angeles Times says it "looks like it has suffered a high-speed hernia," while Car and Driver says it "looks a bit like a 3-series coupe in a fun house mirror."

Ouch!

The Grand Marquis scored higher than the BMW?!? WTF

If people think my car is ugly, then yay for them. I think it's stunning. Maybe my cornia is shaped like a convex fun-house mirror. Maybe I have no brain.

Or maybe individual tastes differ. :-) I think the current 3 looks porky where the 1 looks lean. Apparently I'm the marketing target for the 1. It kept me from buying an E36.

Honestly I think BMW has a few cars that are prime canidates for that list. The X6 is at the very top of my ugly list. They took a Pontiac Aztec, raised it, and bangled it.

Yahoo! is on crack for sure. There is no way a Kia Amanti is better looking than the 1er. The 1-Series may have "suffered a high-speed hernia," but the Kia has suffered a brutal beating from the ugly stick big time

The ugly one is the X6, not the 1 series.

I would never call the 1 series pretty, it isn't ugly in my book and has grown on me, but it certianly could use some improvement!

Forget the X6 - that new 5 series thing they are promoting now that is half 5 series sedan and half X6 has to be the ugliest thing ever!

Thumbs up

Yahoo is right. The 1'er is possibly one of the ugliest cars I've ever seen in real life.

There could be others, but seeing one in person really set the point home.

Dan Neil of the Los Angeles Times, the only journalist ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for writing about cars, even said this:

Quote:
“The new 1-series BMW is ugly. Seriously ugly. Ugly with X-wings locked in attack formation. I know an ugly car when one blows past me at 100 mph.”

I've never had anybody in real life, seeing my 1er, say, "damn man, your car is ugly." I have had people say, "damn man, nice car." Enough said.

You must have fun house mirror corneas then. Or I didn't get the memo that it's opposite day.

Suprise surprise.....the BMW fanboys disagree with Yahoo's review of how ugly the 1 series is..

Yes, the front end of the 1 series IS in fact ugly. I like the rear, though. I also enjoyed the funhouse mirror analogy.
