I think BMW design is getting more conservative compared to others.

After the bangle tragedy, I think BMW is being a little too convervative than they should be.

Who agrees?

Revolutionary design you don't like and conservative evolutionary design you also don't like. By the way: E46+E39+E38= Same saussage, different length, yet maybe some of the best BMW's ever.

The new F10 actually looks pretty good in person.

I'm going to miss the 1, X6, Z4 and the 3-series Coupe though.

I think we will remember Bangle with some fondness as time goes on because they age extremely well. Everything except the gone too far 6 Series and the mild E90.

Yeah.

Sometimes I see a Z3 and I'm like, is that a new model?
