Where are they now? Chris Bangle.

“It starts with drinking the cognac, it ends with drinking the cognac”

A couple videos about how ex-BMW design guru Chris Bangle was asked to redesign the Hennessey bottle.   The real question here is, is there flame surfacing involved!?

Return of the Renault 5?

It’s hard to believe that the Renault 5 is celebrating its 40th (!) anniversary from its launch soon.  Apparently, it is being reported in the french media that Renault are bringing a Renault 5 ‘redux’ back in celebration and that this is now ‘confirmed’….

A shame that Renault isn’t coming back to the US market….But then again, Fiat is pretty much ruining any chance of others trying to come back.  If Fiat would have done well, the others would have made a run—-but not any more!

Here’s a rendering of the Renault 5 resurrection! (maybe)

welcome to the redesigned IEDEI (v. 3.0)

(a picture of the original 2008 blog style below)









This is the 3rd major redesign in IEDEI history—–and quite a large one at that.  Learning CSS is harder than it seems—but i’m glad Sobia (my wife) is a bit of a badass when it comes to web development and helped me iron out a few details—although the design and ideas are solely mine.

All hail the next era of the cool automotive blog.  IEDEI was a unique idea when i launched it over 3 years ago—-and remains a unique idea, so unique that I can’t even figure out what it is supposed to be sometimes.  That being said—I have some interesting ideas for the “IEDEI” badge in the coming times…..more details in 2012.

Keep the petrol pumping, and the cylinders humping.

Hey BMW….What are you doing!?

what in the world have you done to the 1-series?  Those headlights look like the eyes of a strange animal.  RIP BMW design—–you need to be resurrected.  Badly. What is that shape?
