I still can't get over the front end, the end of the hood line being this straight cutoff line makes the car look bulky and unathletic up front.....same affect on the 5 and the 7 as well. Have no idea what BMW was thinking

That is EXACTLY what it is, but I need someone to explain to me how a flatter nose with more service area is gonna HELP someone when they get hit. Bottom line, I don't care how you design a car, if it hits you, you gonna get f***ed up.....

Europeans have failing economies because they create nothing.......so I guess they might as well create POINTLESS regulations.

Bottom line, you get hit, I don't care what the car is designed like, you are f***ed.

Not sure what you mean by "create nothing." They obviously make some very good cars. Italy is at the forefront of fashion and design. Spain also has great design-driven furniture and architecture. France and Italy are culinary capitols. I could go on. Don't by that reasoning.

Where do you think these come from ?
And these are just the premium car brands.

Red Bread, the link doesn't work.

hwelvaar: Laat maar, je hebt gelijk.

Just let it be, we (the Dutch and the Flemish Belgians) are the founding fathers of New York/City , nobody else but our ancestors.
Never forget that.
One of them is born 10 miles from where I 'm born(Peter Stuyvesant)

So far the historical point.

Cheers

I should have made the exception of cars, it was assumed
