Totally agree. What I'm getting tired of is ignorant people who think that Chris actually designed the new cars and it is somehow his fault. Again, other people designed the new cars. BMW management fully backs these designs. It's just that Chris is the "spokesman," if you will, of these.

The last issue of Roundel magazine has a great write-up. A few editors went to the show and heard Chris speak, which made them appreciate his vision and his ideas. Yes, the designs are VERY controversial. Yes, I agree that they are a far cry from the older designs. Yes, I still like the E39 over E60 any day. However, what's done is done, and it was done for a reason and with purpose. Like it or not. Agree with it or not.

I love my wife, my boys and my girls.
