Here are exclusive pics of the Bangled 3 series. Now this is really gettin too much. Is Bangle tryin to take over the entire car design?? I guess all the Bangled BeeMs shud have a BM logo at the rear [like DC].

Maybe Bangle is the only designer who seems to be inspired, not by females but big muscular greek gods.

I mean look at that car dude, it's a true muscle car. Both from the inside as well as the outside.


The front section is "A...OK" with me. Now how about a rear view. That's where it usually gets bangled up.

Regards...

Problem is you soon begin to get tired of the looks once the initial novelty and shock value has worn off. Look at the classic BMWs and Mercs, also at the older american cars like corvettes and camaros and mustangs. They still look and are desirable. Not many people down the years would like to put in money for a Bangled Beemer.

Hey Vishnu,

its great to have some1 here who actually likes the new 3 & 5 (for a change)
I dont really like the 3 & 5, but however do like the 7!! (& Z4 as opposed to z3)
I hate the rear of the 7&5 though...i wonder if bangle stuck with it on the 5 even after all the criticizm of the rear on the 7 just to make a point?

Exactly, Infact the 5 looks Stunning, but the rear just loses it for me. But some how its starting to grow on me, I hated the 7 initially but everytime I look at one now, I seem to say, well thats impressive, without a doubt. Ofcourse the "BackSide" will take some getting used to.. thing.
The 3 series is just like that, it'll take some getting used to, but I am sure over the years it'll grow on people. By the way v12, any rear images of this (new 3 series?)

what i dont like abt the new BMWs are that the Kidneys have become bigger and broader.
And also the headlights have become longer. Looks like a long-grown moustache.

Wow..i didnt know there were such big fans of the 5!...great.
Good to know that there are some tbhpians who arent revolted by the new styling.

and im sure once the M5 comes out.....and tests are run etc etc that will convert a whole lot of new people to loving the new 5 (even if they initially didnt like the sytling they will forget abt that becoz of the performance!!!)

Yes the new M5 is going to be Wicked, without a doubt. And the four exhaust pipes will make even the rear look awesome!
Even thought the new RS6 will have an underpowered Gallardo v10, I think M5 will be my Performance Luxury Car of the Decade!
And yes indeed I have no complaints to this 3 series's front. Its smashin'.

Guys,
I think the car looks GREAT . The only 1 I hate is the 6. That looks ugly. The thing with Bangle's Designs are that they dont look that great on 2D Images but when u see them in the FLESH......whew they will blow you away. I just love the 3 and 5 Designs no matter what any1 says.
