Didn't BMW learn anything from the aesthetically-challenged/woefully over-priced 5GT?The 'new-ish' 3-Series is already a resounding design disappointment, amounting to little more than new front and rear fascias grafted onto the same old tired middle and I seriously doubt that slapping a humpback on it is going to make it any more appealing.
Hopefully BMW has learned from their mistakes, as well as Honda and Acuras mistakes. And that they've learned from other's successes. That making the fastback sedan beautiful makes all the difference. The upcoming Ford Fusion, the Aston Martin Rapide and the Audi A7 are stunning. And they sell at a premium. Honda and BMW have to put lots of cash on the hood to sell theirs. New car categories have to win people over on style, and not make the owners look dopy.
Hey Vince, you forgot about (along with everyone else) The Trunkectomy Patient - the mediocre little BMW Compacthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_Compact
