BMW: the (de)generations of design.

I grew up with BMW as my favourite marque; mainly because of my undying love for the E30 M3 when i was a young child.  I’m not sure why I wasn’t like other children who loved Corvettes and Porsches, because I wasn’t.  I still remember my parents buying me a radio controlled car when i was very young (9 or 10?), and I didn’t choose the red Porsche, i chose the dark grey E30 M3.  I wish i still had that radio controlled car…

Anyways, BMW is a company who i’ve watched deteriorate in charm.  They may still build very fast and potent automobiles—-but they leave me feeling numb.  The modern BMW design is stale and very non-BMW in many ways.  To be honest, the 1-series is the only BMW I am really a fan of—-and that is a great car to drive as well.

Here are 2 photos.  One of all the 5-series and one of all the 3-series.   The best ones are on the left side of the pictures.
