BMW and Audi have not fallen for that stupid fad. To me, that says something about their design philosophies.
I find the ATS exterior styling to be very sporty and at the same time very elegant. Everything flows very well and is proportional. The F30 on the other hand is rather bland. BMW certainly played it safe with the design rather being more innovative. It doesn't look bad at all, just a little bloated and boring. The E46 was flawless, almost perfect in every way.
