Dr. Brown and I took that thing for a spin next weekend (or last weekend?)

Not my taste as it is, but it's promising. BMW would benefit from having something like this in their product line.

While the rims aren't my favorite, way to go BMW on going back to the 80's styling! I'd take one in a second.

Lucky for us BMW has already said that they have no plans for an M1.

Well I like the way they made the grille a 3D design aspect, and the taillights are somewhat relative to the ones featured on the CS. Still, the thing looks like it could have been done as a design school project. Maybe it won a contest or something and BMW featured it at that show or something.

It's good, but it's severely flawed in terms of aesthetics, in my opinion.

Even the hood creases follow the CS design. Didn't notice that. I think my stating of it being severely flawed is a bit of an overstatement. It's flawed, but it's not horrible. The corners on the car are what's making it look awkward. They're too abrupt.

Stick an S70 in the back and I'd be willing to forget the looks.

definitely look very similar to the old M1s, but the kidney grills look really awkward
