It is really funny - when Chris Bangle was in charge - change is too radical - when they are a little bit more conservative - now it's getting old....

Just another Photoshop image in a german magazine - poor copies - so not really worth looking at to be honest

I hope the new 3-series in 2013 doesn't get that big nostral treatment.
+1.....I think Bangle's designs looked better than this. The new 7 is about as unassuming as the Lexus ES. Disappointing.

I could be wrong, but I believe that frontal surface area requirements have changed (increased) for pedestrian safety reasons in the EU, and so you will see all European car designs change accordingly.

Gotta say, I'm acutally liking the look of this. Modern, sleek and slick. Not a fan of the ES350 taillights, but hey. Nothing's perfect.
