Well I know Bangle BMWs are widely regarded as ugly or controversial, but at least he tried something entirely new (and IMO the 2003 Bangle 5 series looks still more modern and way better than the following up 2 generations), and despite all the hate for the 7 series, nearly all car makers copied the Bangel butt at one time, and the controversial interior features were widely copied as well.
Certainly I'd hope more for a 5 than a 7 series Bangle Bimmer, but at least something that looks remotely different to the car it replaces, and probably also a but different to the smaller and or larger model in the line. Something that makes BMWs visually relevant again...
