Look at the small portion of uncovered steel behind the rear window. You can see the bone line move quickly behind the rear window. I don't think I have ever seen this line on a car decklid before. This is new. I predict that we are going to have a new trunk design to get used to. Actually my mental image is quite good.
I'm dying to see more. This is fun. I applaud BMW and Chris B. for their daring and controversial design. He pushes the envelope and assures that all others are relegated to petty critique and being forever followers. Every new luxury car on the market currently has adopted his 'ugly' 7 series decklid in one form or another.
I will continue to watch all other autos in my rearview mirror...an effect of both the performance of my BMW, and the design of it to!
