In Reply to: how did e32 owners feel about the e38 in 1995? posted by calypso 750 on June 28, 2001 at 09:11:26:
I don't think that BMW were wrong to be so bold with the E65, it's just that the new car looks terrible.
You can radically change styling and still have a good looking car (see Lexus LS430 and Mercedes W220 S-Class).
it would be interesting to look at how the e38's new design was accepted by the BMW community in '94/'95--not exactly sure when it came out. looking back, it be hard to imagine that the reviews were anything but positive. i wonder if we'll all say the same thing a number of years from now.
