Interesting Mini-Documentary on Ex-BMW Design Chief Chris Bangle
If you are interested in what progressed BMW styling this is well worth your time. Like him or hate him, there is no denying Chris Bangle had a huge impact on the automotive industry. He also is responsible for pushing BMW design into the future. His designs angered many purists and to be honest, were too much (especially his take on the rear). He pushed the designs too far but there is no denying BMW needed a push and to break free of what had become too refined and too similar. This is an interesting look inside the mind of Bangle.

What I like most in this is when he says, "I've worked so hard for them to understand it is a culture, it is a thing, which deserves to exist and deserves to be criticized as well."
Exactly right... well said Bangle.

I liked what he did as well... except for the rear of the 5 and 6 series. A lot of people in the industry adopted the Bangle butt though, amazing how powerful BMW design has become.Chrome Space Bar Issue: http://www.boostaddict.com/showthrea...338#post738338
