Question What is the worst looking car (E90, A4, TL)?

Compared to the current A4 and the TL, I personally feel like the new E90 is not even in the same league styling wise. The A4 and TL are so elegant by comparison. The E90 is the Michael Jackson of re-designs!

I picked the A4 because I thought you were talking about the new model...

The TL is elegant if, by elegant, you mean BORING. As far as the E90 is concerned, I am starting to warm up to BMW's new designs. The 7-er looks badass in dark colors, as does the 6-er. The 5-er has totally won me over now, especially in Sport Package and M form. :drool: . The new 3 is... different... but I like what they did with the front. The back... eh.. almost looks like a Subi to me. But it's growing on me.

Extend the poll and include the C320 and IS300, I think the E90 will still lose

Me too. That's the only fair comparison for the E90. The new A4 front is hideous.

I can't vote on this as I think they all look good though after drivng a TL it is definitely my last choice as far as driving goes.

e90

tl took me awhile to adjust, but adjust I did...

New audi..... I think it'll grow on me for sure, the lines flow better than the e90.

but what would I want to OWN? Probably a close race between Audi and BMW.

This is so sad. Wasn't it not long ago when people were talking about what the BEST looking cars were? Whoever is educating this new breed of industrial designers need to be fired.

The C320 is a nice car if you have the right wheels. The IS300 is just ugly compared to its competition. They brought a Toyota Altezza over and rebadge it and try to make it an edgy, sporty, luxury vehicle. I think it falls short on the latter two.
