Please select only one answer.

I just seemed to notice that people who liked the 3 & 5 didnt like the 7... and other similar patterns.

I couldnt include the 6 and 1 as i could only put 10 answers!
Half managed to inclue the Z4...

Keep the written replies simple (if at all) as we aldready have faaar too many posts concerning the new bangled designs!

What...no 6 series...the only decent Bangle job out there! Well, from the list above i guess it'd be the Z4...although i think its ### looks like a baboon!

the present 3-series is in fact designed by Bangle. But that is not so famous since its not as controversial and when he had designed it he was not the head of Design for BMW AG

I'm not a fan of any of BMW's current designs. BMW powerplants are what appeal to me.

who would have thought, first man to choose the last option. yes,i do like all the bangled cars listed here. of course, considering you aretalking about the new 3-series, the pics for which were put up on another section. out of what was left out, 6 series happens to be my favourite car in the current bmw line up. and of course the soon-to-be-launched M5.

Opted for 3 & 5 not 7, though, I like 7 too
6 and Z4 are brilliant to watch in flesh.
Only I havent seen is the new 3 (the one ported pointed out, was put up in another section).
(Ofcourse, I hate the backside of 5 & 7, but it is starting to grow an impression on me).

Hey guys,

Well i left out the 6 coz as i sayd there wasnt enough place and i wanted to concentrate on the pattern of choice between the 3 5 & 7.
Z4 and 7 are my fav and i do think the 6 looks great in some pics too!
I left out the M5 coz if you say you like the M5 and not the 5 its just becoz of the aura that surrounds the car + a few body mods (no real change in the "design" as such).

I must say that there is a much greater positive response to the bangled designs lately.......i guess everything is relative!

cheers

the only bangled beemer that i like is the new 6 series. reminds me of the buick riviera that was launched a cople of years back.......big, looks expensive and quite graceful too. i do see a lotta new 5 and 7 series here in delhi. how u like the looks is pretty subjective, but you cant deny the fact that the cars have lotsa road presence. must be like the santro's design........they grow on you as time goes by.....just a matter of gettin used to.

nice thing that bangle has been moved from his current position, he's not directly involved in the designs of beemers anymore. like addy said, it's the stuff under the skin that counts. lets hope bmw doesnt mess with that too. still wonder what was wrong with the old designs........were so damn classy, all of them.
