I love the front. Everything else is just meh. And I'm particularly disturbed at how top heavy this car looks.

Sometimes a little extra visual weight on the rear end is good. This time it just looks fat.

Isn't it funny how they conceal the badge when it's sitting in the BMWNA lot! Do they think people will say "Gee, is that was a Lexus"?!

Mein Auto: car
Looks like someone designed this car from the oscar meyer weenie dog style truck. Jeez its horrendous and the team that designed this needs to be punched in their face thousand times over for their blindness and stupidity for coming up with such an ugly shape that has no character and without any equal proportions. A kid can even do better than this!

FAT indeed. The American's way. Oh, wait, I forgot it is made in Germany.

The nicest looking parts of that car......are the wheels...the rest looks like King Kong ate a bunch of different Bimmers and sh*t this thing out.

I really do rather like all of it, except for the rear. I just can't get over how it looks no matter how many hundreds of times I've already looked at it
