Maybe now..........BMW aesthetics will be on par w/ its powerplants.

His design philosophy went against the idea of the Roundel. 

Whenever I see a current M3, it reminds me of how diluted the lines  have become in comparison to the original E30 M3.....almost no homage whatsoever. 

Even the newest P car 997/8 platforms still bare a trace /nod to the earliest 911. Talk about sticking to a plan !  

I for one would love to see them open up Garching once again, get the sons of the 78 guys that used to hand build M cars there, and get back to building some real Bavarian rockets with less fat...more filling.

Enough w/ the SMG's, DRC's ,DSC's and whatever other interferences. I want to drive a car dammit !

Good catch Paulie  : ) 

I think I'll go pet my 91 M5 now  : p

BMW Group's design head Chris Bangle is quitting "to pursue his own
design-related endeavors beyond the auto industry," the German carmaker
said Tuesday.  Adrian van Hooydonk, head of design for BMW brand, will succeed
Bangle.  "Christopher Bangle has had a lasting impact on the identity of
BMW Group's brands. His contribution to the company's success has been
decisive," said Klaus Draeger, BMW's development chief in a
