    Well, a smiley would help, actually. See: . It's easy as that.

    The new design is for today's tastes
    Well, not for mine.

    exactly. I thought people would catch the sarcasim there. I guess not. The new design is for today's tastes, not those of the 80s.

    Why else do you think that BMW already face-lifted their 7 series? Yep, it wasn't accepted by the public. Therefore I don't think the new design is "more mainstream" but they wanted to try something new. And in my opinion this is the wrong way.

    See how they didn't dare to play games with their mass-models like the 5 or 3 series? Compared to the 7 or 6 they are quite "normal". Well, here is a picture of the old 6:



    Now there is a small manufacture making some radical conversions of off-the-line cars and their version of the ne BMW 6 looks like this:





    In my opinion this is how BMW should have built the car. It looks so much more beautiful and harmonious than that ugly beast they produce.
    I like the new one way more in this case also. The old one looks like it came form the 1980's.

    That happens when you rely on Google to give you appropriate pics . But regardless, I guess you can see the point of BMW dropping their classic shape in favor of mainstream round lines.

    The third photo looks like thats of a 3 series, its not a 6 series which was discontinued in the late 80's or early 90's.

    Same here! The current BMW fleet is the hottest non-exotic car line on the road, in my opinion.

    Well, for starters as a comparison, old 8:

    versus new 8:

    Let's just say that BMW is trying to be more mainstream, and over trying to be that has lost its typical classy lines.
    And to further prove it, oldvsnew 6:

    I love the look of the new BMWs. Are the ones you guys don't like not in America yet or do we just have different tastes?

    What happened to that fabulous coupe?
    It disappeared without replacement sadly. Yes, it is a beautiful car. There ist the BMW Z8, though. Also a really good-looking vehicle but quite expensive.

    and why have BMW's turne dso ugly
    Ask Mr.Bangle . Yeah, I hate looking at these monstrosities on the streets (and I live in Munich!!) because they really hurt the eyes. How can someone build something that ugly?
