Would you ever have bought a 5 or 7? I will never buy a 7 and it's only somewhat likely that I would ever buy a 5. It's not an issue to BMW if someone who isn't in the deomgraphic to buy a car likes it or not. And you saw yourself - someone who posted an "Isn't this ugly!" picture got a thread of positive responses to follow. That's where an attention-getting car will do better, even if person x dislikes it - person x will tell persons a->z about it, and some of them will like it, whereas person x may like this other bland design, but won't spread the word on it, since it's bland.

(The only one where BMW really had to score with me is the Z4, and they did.)
