Sorry to disinhearten you but this message would be filed to the relevant department - ie Recycle Bin , You should be surprised how much Anti - Chris Bangle messages BMW still get (mainly from the USA) - Like Get over it already BMW don't give a flying f*** about your greivances about Chris Bangle.

The design strategy has worked . Which allowed BMW to overtake Mercedes-Benz as the worlds largest premium manufacturer, a title BMW only played second fiddle to previously.

This was not a photshop but a spyshot.
So let me get this right, you've bought 3 BMW's in the last 3 years so a total of say 100,000 pounds, and you think the design team of a multi-billion dollar company which sells something (note the something as i'm not exactly sure) like 100,000 cars a year is going to change the entire front end because you don't like it? Talk about delusions of graduer!
Plus if you take a rational view about it, for every letter you send there will be someone else just as 'important' sending one saying the exact opposite. Hence what's the point?!?

Again, just my 2 cents/interpretation. Just trying to help you guys understand each other. Cheers.
Thankyou.

BMW is definitely on the right path with Chris Bangle. I didn't always think that, especially early on with the 7. I began to realize when the E60 5 came out that we were in good hands.

Honestly, you really need to learn how to READ.

He personally wasn't calling you a prat, but was explaning to you how meaningless your response from BMW actually was. Mpower was attempting to translate what they actually wanted to type in that letter. Instead of the "canned" response you got.

Lay off the steroids and learn to keep your rage under control. There is no need for un-civil dialouge. An apology is in order.

I think I'd actually like the e90 M3 to have the e92 bumper to "mix things up" since I currently have an e90.

It will look different, it will have two more doors.

Think about it aren't you just as sad coming to this forum and expressing your views.

Er....no.

Logging on to a forum for a couple of minutes to see if there is any news on the M3, and if there is, discussing this afforementioned news is quite reasonable. Making comments, good or bad, on what you've discovered is also quite reasonable. But writing a letter to BMW on how they should design their cars is unbelievable, as well as being very, very sad. What do you hope to achieve? Do you think they will listen to you? Even if they did, it's far too late in the development process to make any changes now.

You are one very sad loser.

Why the animosity mofomat. You don't even know me. We all do things differently, that's what makes life interesting. Whether they listen to me or not is not the point. I did it because it makes me feel better that I tried. I agree it is highly unlikely (nigh on impossible) that they make any changes, but that shouldn't stop you from asking for change.

I feel very passionate about BMW and spending a few minutes on writing to them to make suggestions hurts no-one except haters like yourself.

Your last sentence is so full of hate which is totally uncalled for. You sound like you have good breeding.

I am relatively new to this forum and am very disappointed at reading this thread over the last few days.

The problem with written word is it is so easily mis-understood.
