View Full Version : Saw a new cab last night. It looks OK!

I know there were a few fans of the old, outgoing 6, but it will always be on my all time ugly BMW list.

Last night I checked out a '12 cab in black. I'd seen pictures, but it's better to check out a design in sheet metal. Much, much improved aesthetically, especially the back end. The back is lower and sleeker without the swollen, bulbous, flat trunk design. The front end is pretty much current 5. I'd still like to see a return to the waterfall hood design, instead of the rather pedestrian, Pontiac like gap across the bottom of the hood (cheaper to produce, but cheaper in appearance also), but all in all a much better overall shape with improved detailing.

I still don't really know why anyone wants to buy a 4000+ lb. "sporty" coupe, but at least it's no longer a visual abomination.

I'm liking it more and more. Saw it at the dealership 2 weeks ago. There are parts about my curent 6 I love, but the new one is definitely worth a look.

I don't consider it a sporty car. I bought it coz I like the design and I wanted a big convertible.

Me too - the 335 'vert was just a smidge too small
