What seem to be pics form the configurator;






IT'S fascinating how something can look that bland and vulgar at the same time...

Gosh, this is going to be one for darker colours only. The white only underscores out the horrid detailing.

It's weird how hit and miss BMW is lately. You can really play a game of good (8-Series), bad (Z5), and ugly (X7, 7-Series) with the brand. But then, the same can be said for MB and Audi. I think the Germans are really losing the plot lately.

The face on this thing is just plain awful.

The side profile REALLY reminds me of the new Accord - which is actually nice (similar to the BMW, the Accord face destroys an otherwise nice car)....rear end is generic.

The metallic detailing is pretty bad, as is the lower front bumper intake. Grille is too big.
Everything seems so tacked-on. Spy pictures led me to believe this was going to have some serious blocky styling.like a Rolls, but it's like they decided to play it safe, go only about 50% of the way, and then just decorate/accessorize the hell out of it. What a shame.

I've just seen a new A8 yesterday, and what struck me when looking at the 3/4 picture of the rear above is how similar they really are in terms of rear light treatment:

Yeah, they can photoshop it to hide the reality.

A good design should look good not only in heavily edited press pics taken form a precisely said angle, but generally; It's however hard to imagine that this atrocity will look good in any pic.
