The Good and the Bad Looking



I've just come across a car that's both good and bad to look at, at the same time! It's called the BMW 1 Series. The little Beemer looks impressive in the profile. There's a complex interplay of concave and convex surfaces on the side of the car and it manages to look as if the whole lot has been carved out of a single billet of metal. Awesome. But, it's the head-on view that's awful . Atleast for me. The culprit here is the headlamps that suddenly bulge out in size as it goes towards meeting the fenders. In order to try and tone down the controversial Bangle effect, BMW has been, for some time now, concentrating on softening up the looks and the results, unfortunately, don't manage to go down too well with me.

yeah,as you said headlights look weird but in my opinion overall look is good(design is smooth right from front to rear).

I agree with you. The "overall" design is nice. And please stop that "iceman ram" nonsense:-)There is absolutely zero things common between you and Kimi. For a start, Kimi drinks gallons of champagne daily.
