Could be the photo is not a real car but the company and there products are established and well known a bit like Brabus for Mercedes.

Everyone knocked the the BMW 7 when it was first shown to the public, Even me !

But I have to say it keeps growing on me and the design and shape will take a long time to 'Look old'

Still wouldnt buy one !

Wow...the kit and wheels have transformed the car! I like it...can't believe Im saying that but I do. Unlike the new 6, which I saw in person today and its bloody hideous.

I saw this in DUB magazine 50Cent has one of in black, and some of the G-Unit homies got them in white and red - wheels and all coloured! Very OTT

His yellow Murcielago with the yellow 22's is the total gagsta rapper accessory!

Cant argue against the performance 0-62 5sec ! 530Bhp I heard the M5 was going to be 600Bhp ??

Mike,

I wasnt keen on the 6 when i first saw it, But having seen one in our car park at work for the last 6 weeks. Have another look !

Look at it side on, now focus on the rear lights,but removing the bootlid where it comes down meeting the rear lights

Remind you of anything ????????????

Porsche !!!!

Go and take another look !

Thats the thing Wish, in photos I thought it looked great - it was the first Bangle design to pull of the look. But I spent ages looking at one at a dealer and it just looked wrong - very fat waistline, particuarly the pronounced grille and nose area, and it just looked like a bloated 2 door 7 rather than the sleek coupe I expected.

BMWs styling just confuses me, every now and then I see a new shape 5 in a dark colour (hiding all the shocking detailing) and it looks alright. I actualy quite like the rear lights and boot area, but the rest is just so hideous. When the 3 goes the same way there won't be a current model I like - until the new 2 series coupe, if the artists impressions are anything to go by

Ive said it in topics before, But BMW are down on numbers at the moment, but it all takes time. Next year... maybe the year after.... the design will be the leading style.

Ford use to be able to do it. It happened when the Sierra was launched in 1983 everyone preferd the Cortina.... but it was a huge success just 2 years later.

Remember Escort! who preferd the Escort over the Focus ???? Who would still buy an Escort over a Focus now if still made ...... Not me !!!

Time Grasshopper, Time .............

I cant belive im the one defending the BMW, umm dark room and a large wiskey please !

LOL weve swapped roles [;)]

I agree with you 100%, even Audi are at it with that new waterfall grille. Will be interesting to see what happens in the next 5 years, will be very weird if the Bangle style becomes the norm. I eagerly await the new 2 series
