A front plate may actually improve the look. That would be a first!

Yup, that's the irony. Usually in new car promo shots they always remove the front plate, but for this one, I've noticed they include it!

Clearly you didn't read the OP

I dunno... that actually kinda looks good to me. Hyper aggressive. I've seen em in person too and I like the look. I know....unpopular opinion around here. But I like it and might actually order one just for the 6MT.

Same here. I actually ordered a M3 6MT. And yes, once it is built and ready at the BMW Welt for pick-up I will go for the regular, wide Euro front license plate.

In person and in photo, I'm not digging the look. It works a little better on the X7 because of the vehicle size but everything else....reminds me of the pigs from Angry Birds. That's just me, though.

Paganis are weird, beautiful exteriors but interiors are just too wild imho. What a contrast.

Perhaps subliminally this guided their decision.

Solid purchase.

There you go. You are the people mentioned in your original post. You are the aztec buyer. So you should be able to answer your own question.

I thought the e85 Z4 was hideous when I first saw them. Ended up buying a used 2006 Z4MR because I loved the way it drove. To this day it’s my favorite car I’ve owned and the car I owned for the longest 5-6 years. The looks grew on me. Maybe I made myself like it because I loved everything else about it.

looks aside.... at least the G80 is an incredible machine to drive. I'm not quite sure what the Aztec has going for it.

The G8X may have performance, but the Aztec has something the G8X will never have, Heisenberg

Well, at least the person driving the car can't see the front end.

Yes, every single time I see a Tesla Model Y. The proportions are just a mess.

The Taylor Aerocar

One of many attempts at making a flying car. I think in every case, they were a lousy car and a lousy airplane and above all, impractical:

The problem with the Aztec wasn't so much its looks. It's the fact that it was mediocre. If it had been excellent at something, the looks wouldn't have mattered, or could conceivably have become a selling point. Instead, it just didn't do anything particularly well. It wasn't even bad enough to have done a good job at being bad.
