Well, this could start a whole other debate, but while Audi has stuck with
their bland styling, BMW has done something different and innovative with
the new Bangle designs and after digesting them for a while, I think I
really like them.

It's not the same old thing like with Audi and Benz and each model line
looks different, which is more than you can say for the above.

Oh, and I might be slightly biased since I drove an M6 today.  Yowza.
