I have to go with the guy from Bangladesh.

The only reason he is, where he is...... is bcoz, where he is....is where he shouldn't have been. While you try and figure that out, you might as well make a vote.

Jokes apart, i think he really has some talent withing him which needs to be brought to the notice of others, who knows...with guys like him..... our Indian cars might actually start looking better.

Regards...

Among these guys it has to be Chris Bangle. Easily. He may have ruined the looks of BMW and made a mess of the Rolls Royce, but I know one thing, his cars won't fall apart. Anyway, his creations still look better than any of other designers' works.

If you want a serious answer, it has to be Chris Bangle... (my vote)

Otherwise, it's a toss-up between DC and "the guy from Bangaladesh" (whoever he is)

Chris Bangle any day over the other guys. I dont like DC's designs at all... I think we have discussed DC and his designs in one of the threads and all of us decided pretty crappy designs. The SAN well dont know whats fibre in that car, and what is light. Its extremely heavy and that renault engine is no better at all.

Cheers
Dom

From the choices its Bangle for me . His current designs may not really appeal to me still after seeing his cars in the flesh theyre not all that bad.

Bangle is the only real designer in this group. DC, the Bangladeshi etc simply convert cars to look different. They don't pay any attention to anything except the looks.

For me, one of the best present generation designers is Ajay Panchal. I simply love what he has done with the 350Z. I'm sure he is behind other Nissan beauties too like the G35. Now thats good design!!

Bangle for me too, hard to digest at first but when they grow on you, boy do they grow on you. And i agree with Rtech on Ajay Panchal too, fantastic job with the 350Z.

Bangle here too, isn't the best around, but, IMO, the best among the choice given!!

Did you know, the previous gen 5 series, the current gen 3 series, z3, previous gen 7 series, the X5s all have Chris Bangle's lines on it?

Chrissy is just a case of a man trying to change a few things, but its too much a culture shock for most of us to take. Its like a 19th century man dancing in a ballroom being all of a sudden placed in a 21st century dance club. But i am sure, he will still foot-tap to 21st century music.

Bangle it is for me, then the Bangla, then the San walla and then the Bhangadiwala from Kondivita. Oh, forgot to mention. Mr. Bhangadiwalla from Kondivita is just 2 minutes away from my place which coincidentally is also Kondivita. So imagine the number of eye sores i keep getting. Everyday!
