In My opinion, too much like a pimp mobile but an exclusive one

Looks dull, bad design. But i won't be surprised if i see a few of these in one off the "R & B" and "Rap" videos on Mtv.

Annnnnnnnnd here begins the effect of Bangle on becoming the head of design for BMW, Mini & Rolls. This car looks so like the PiMp MobIlE. I really wouldn't be surprised if the only buyers of this car are Hip-Hop/Rap artists. The dumb thing is that i can't beleive BMW choose a two-tone clor for its display which just proves my fact more that its designated to be a Pimp Mobile

to tell you the truth I kind of like it..its a pimp mobile alright, not the usual RR, but the pics I had posted a week back, in that this car looked awesome..i dont know if grimreaper saw it in person and didnt like it, cuz i havent seen it in person so I cant comment, but the pics I had posted udner new arnage post, they were pretty good..but then again..i sometimes like edgy cars ...eg being this one..

Also

the only bad example of bangle is the 5 which i saw in person. its ok from the front and crazi from the side and back..otherwise 3 is awesome..7 front and side is sweet...back is crap except over all in some colors the car looks good..x5 is awesome, x3 not bad..z4 aaahhh didnt ever liked the Zs...and what else the M3 is freaking awesome..so I dont know..over all BMW' designs havent remained what they use to be..but arnt all that bad.(..i think..)

again my opinion..

Cheers..

RR has gone from being majestic, sophisticated and high class to what C4S has rightly termed as a "Pimp Mobile".

RR really didn't need this. If you can't make fancy, retro cars, then don't.

I wonder whats next......maybe they'll parade the Queen of England in it. If that ever happens, i'll give it in writing......RR is going down the drain.

I really wonder where Rolls Royce is heading... Everything under the BMW stable is going the Bangled way. God help us from Bangle syndrome

Cheers

This is a rude shock after the Phantom. But, what is even more surprising is that he took so long to mess up a Rolls. I was beginning to worry.
Perversion of a great marque. Luckily, Bentley's not fallen into BMW's hands.
I wonder how the new mini will look.

they cud be sharing the same platform. looks are also similar [not same]. the grille looks as if its integrated into the body. the round lights do not suit the rectangular grille. wud look good on a Bentley. And somehow i do not like the paint scheme. Anyways thats my personal opinion.

Dont you think, because of the paint job the grill looks integrated...take a look at this pic, i took of the phantom..it has everything the same from the front and ofcourse the back..

may be i missing something, but somehow they seems to be very very similar..to me..
