    No offense to those who like this car but I think BMW made this too much of a "chick" car.

    I had a 1980 633 csi in Collage, was a really fun car for me despite the repair cost. I don't like the new looks so far, infact I thinks it's insulting the classic E24. I have not yet seen one in person but like anything else BMW builds, it grows on some but not all. This is not a 6 series, call it an 8 or something else.

    You got da right. I went last year. You have to leave the hall before 6:00 pm on Sat nite cause that when the bangers and 5-0 start moving in for their annual love feast...

    My bidness partner wants me to go again this year. How much will you pay for a free lance article, eh?

    I see more evidence that Chris Bangle continues along with his fiendish plans to emasculate a great marque.

    Honestly I think some of yall might be judging a little to fast. I saw real nice pictures from CAR magazine (I'll post them after finals) and the 6-Series is just simply amazing. Chick car or not, it'll look nice and hopefully it'll have the power to back it.

    Like to gather opinions on the things I hit.

    I am driving a M+B CLK 500 Right now and it is one fine piece of machinery. very stable and quick.

    Will have a SL 600 Next week so any input on the new bmw or this would be helpful

    The nose of the Z8--tollerable but not great.

    Sides of E36 3 series--better than the bunk on the Z4 and newer 7 series.

    Tail off a L300 Lexus.

    Could have been much worse.

    I love it. Of course, I like all of Bangle's designs, and I love the tail of the 7 series. Its the older BMW's that I dislike, except for the Mille Miglia 328. Beautiful car, that one.

    I personally like it. I have to admit, however, it did take me awhile to get used to the new 7 series when it first came out. I guess you can say the style grew on me.

    One style I DON'T like is the new Lexus ES300. I really like the last style but the new one looks like it's on stilts.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    Bangle is destroying BMW. Period. He hasn't penned a nice design since joining BMW. With each of the 7-series, Z4 and 5-series, I much prefer their predecessors.

    Yep, have to say the rear looks like a Lexus SC 430.
