Everytime I see a new 8 series (which, frankly, is not that often, doesn't seem to exactly fly off the dealer lots), I think it looks like a Mustang with an ungainly body kit; In flesh even more so than on pics; It#s fun, as the first generation 8 series was often mocked in it's home market for looking too much like the much cheaper Opel Calibra;
As much as BMW usually has a hit with their small and mid sized sedans, and tend to nail them, the coupes have somehow never been their forte, never doing as well as say Mercedes. I will exclude the E47 and 92 coupes, tehy were gorgeous, but even the now iconic 6 series form teh 70ies didnt really sell that well back then;
