I'm a hater

I so hate the Gran Turismo version. Hate it, hate it, hate it. Who is the target audience for this automotive abomination?

Wow......

Please tell us how you really feel.




I don't like the look of GT either, but, man, to create a post to that effect is another thing. Does it make you cry when you see it? can't sleep at night? I believe we need PsychDoc1 to chime in.....

Calm down O.P. , trust me you are not the only one.

I think I have only seen like 3 on the road since they first came out.
Just go enjoy your car, the F10 is truly an amazing vehicle!

Agree completely. It makes me think it is the offspring of an F10 mated with a Pontiak Aztek. I also dislike the new 1 series hatchback.

Yes, we are. Our 335xi E92 lease ends in less than a year and it will most likely replaced by a black F10 535xi.

No thanks lol.

We actually had a F10 loaner last year, got to drive it and fell in love!

Bmw really nailed it with the F10 in terms of the overall package, not to mention how extremly comfortable the car is.

There are a lot of ugly BMWs out there, unfortunately. I also hate the GT, E60, first gen X3, X1, 1 series is a total disaster. Tons of crap made by BMW unfortunately...

You forgot the X6, some people did not like the last generation ( E65/66 ) 7 Series also.

Agree. I didn't like the E60, or the Bangle 6 series, Bangle 7 series, Bangle X3, or E90 sedan (coupe and cabrio were nice though).

The E60 was so ugly I bought a Lexus instead.

Totally agree. The GT is nothing short of ugly and only an attempt to fill a gap in the market......that doesn't exist. BMW already makes plenty of options for "family cars" X3 and X5. They also having Touring versions of the 5 series.
The GT needs to go away. To me, it cheapens the 5 series.

For me the X6 is the most eyesore BMW in this era.
The crossover thing I do not completely crasp.
All these kind of cars are nor flesh nor fish.
And with all the compromises that are put together in these cars, not the most purposefull designs.
Being it German, English, japanese, or American products.

Some good old fashioned catharsis. Plus, I saw a GT this morning and threw up in my mouth.

The E90 was fine. I never really liked the E93 though, way too feminine IMO.
Honestly, I would say one of the current greatest looking Bmw's is the F10.

I completely agree that the Lexus is a better looking car than any of the above mentioned BMWs. However, I buy cars to drive and most of my looking is from the inside so I stick with BMW. I really don't care what others think about the appearance.

I buy cars to drive too. The E60 wasn't just ugly, it had a retro 6 speed auto, and when I needed a car in less than a week no one had a car with DHP and ARS. My M3 was breaking down too much and I had found someone to pay top dollar to take it off my hands, so I was in a shot-gun purchase situation. I'm happy to have the F10, but there is no way I would have bought an E60, or for that matter an E-Class.

The people on the F07 forum are the target audience.
