Yup, will have to find some good photos to photoshop some more tasteful design to the front.

It's called the shark fin, and it's probably DS's most recognisable styling cue, so it's not really a surprise that they've carried it over from the first DS3.

If they put it at the C pillar behind the rear passenger doors, it would've probably looked worlds better. Placing it where they did makes it look terrible.

Someone needs to be pedantic.
So your thesis is that because they did this ugly wave one they should keep doing it?

Looks much nicer in black. I just wish the front overhand wasn't so long or the rear overhang was longer to balance it out.

Overall I think it looks really good and pretty unique.

The shark thing is silly. The crease on the doors makes it look like it was in a collision. The face is so discordant it hurts. Even black cannot save this.

Yes, because the original DS3 is by far and away their most successful car, and it sold primarily on looks.
