There are a few BMW diehard that still like the design of the E60, but the majority of the public agree that it was not a attractive design. To this date, when I see a E60 on the road, I try to look at the driver and see who in their right mind would pay that much money for such a ugly car
Of course bangle never actually penned any design. But he oversaw the entire F10 just like he did the E60. That's the very point. People give him credit for one but not the other. IMO as a story it showed that he had a clear vision: Shake things up with hard to swallow designs, then reveal his true plan: To cut right back to traditionally timeless virtues thereafter by heavily refining those initial designs.
