BMWs have always been acquired tastes, always. Even when the E30 came around, it was still dubbed "controversial styling," but BMW end up selling almost 2.4 million units worldwide.
DIfferent strokes for different folks as someone once said.
And if you look hard enough, you'll see that many of the styling cues came from Bangle on the new CL and the W221, even the W211: fat butt, long shoulder line, prounounced wheel arches, short and almost hatch like trunks...just a few.
I just happen to like BMWs as driving cars, which indeed they are better driving cars compared to many Mercedes because of the level of driver involvment and precision they offer, save one car, the CLS55....But I do admit Mercedes does have better looking cars...
