I'm not sure about the E30's but Bangle did start in '92, so everything from then till now he has been a part of, you have to give him credit.

the 745i's wheelbase is 2990mm and overall its 5029mms.

the 760Li's wheelbase is 3130mms and overall 5169mms.

The 745i looks small...doesn't fit the size of a "7". But the 760Li looks huge...it sticks out of a parking space too, and fits the size of a "7".

a 760 is more amazing then a reg 745 or 745Li....

The features are way better of course and the interior is sick (suede roof lining for example)

Bangle, thanks for coming out with a whole line of BMW's I'll never want. --> you own a 2003 X5?!?

thanks for designing cars that many people will gag at, instead of envy--> wait till the new M5 comes out!

I think Bangle would've been better if the BMW CEO's let him do what he wanted. I think the X5 would look AMAZING with the new 5-series headlights, and who remembers the ORIGINAL Z4 concept drawings??? looks much better than what actually came out

If you consider his creations of late, good riddance.
But he was a contributng factor in the E39, E46, 95 to 00 7 series and the Z3, so he wasn't all bad, his time has just passed, his idea's are not what they used to be- that's all.

If any of the big three had a designer like him 15 years ago the vehicle landscape could be a little different today- instaed of the catch up game they're currently playing.

Of all these years, and many new models, I have never seen the controversy that I've experienced now with these new models that Bangle's conjured up from somewhere in his deep, disturbed subconscious.

BMW can not sit blindly and ignore all this controversy.
There is just too much money at stake.

you own a X5... somethign he has designed, and u also used to own an e46, same idea. Im sorry, but if you think that the new 3er,5er,6er,7er are ugly , you need some new eye specs. they are absolutely gorgeous.... Personally i think that newer vettes are ugly, but thats a whole diferent issue on its own...
As far as the gag/envy, i havent spoken to a person yet, who has told me they find either of the new BMW's repulsive in anyway.

GOD's created these machines my friend, GOD'S!


As for the good news, I couldn't be more happier, of course, it still sucks, cause its not like BMW is going to go back to looking GOOD, the lineup will still look like SHIYAT and the fact that hes converted the ENTIRE lineup, added in more pieces of crap, and THEN decides to resign...................


Remember those rumours of Bangle being a robotic spy for mercedes to destroy BMW............ something fishy going on here!

I mean this from the bottom of my heart when i say this:

BANGLE..............FAK YOU!

Whats the problem here? Bangle did a good job. BMW can't look the same throught all of history with a few facelifts here and there... X5 = sweet for an SUV, Z4 = gorgeous, new 5 = sweet, 7 = just plain awesome...

Better to be remembered for something "bad" than nothing at all I say.

Everyone has their own preferance...me and you enjoy the new designs and some hate it. Whatever! Either way I don't think everyone should hate on Bangle, it's not 100% his fault...only 50%

I think Bangle is the only BMW designer whose name is known by almost everyone in the BMW community.

I mean how many of us bothered knowing the name of the person who revoultionized BMW by coming up with the e36 designs? Especially those side skirts?
