RE: BMW coupe isn't designed by BMW's designers!!

If Lutz worked at BMW design and someone gave them a good V12, I would get that car over a Benz. The W221 looks like a cross between the (ugly) rear of a Maybach,(which actually looks like a Rover 75)and the E59 7 series. Even the front is getting the BMW face, just the bars are horizontal, as opposed to the vertical BMW ones.

Wo.......BMW M8?nice!nice!lutz,If your coupe has been produced,I guess that MB SLR coupe is less powerful than it! [:D]
Thanks a lot Cyx!![:)]
You are right! When I saw the official presentation of the McLaren SLR in spring 2003 I was surprised about the similar character of that car. The early SLR Vision Concept was different to this production model now.

That's a very great compliment! Thanks a lot!![:D]

You have a trained eye to see how the concept S class looks and I agree! Do you have Rovers in the USA?

Cool car.......What do u think of my line up...[:)][:D]QUOTE]
Both of your cars give a great pair! Your Benz is simply the perfect luxury car, especially in this color it even looks perfect![8D]

As I can see the BMW has a different sort of headlights than the German versions. Also the color is very suitable for your BMW, very tasteful.[:)]

lutz,

Errr.....Sorry to be asking u so many question .Hope u don't mind[:)]..Hehehehe

How do u see it's differences from German headlight?...My Bimmer is a completely UK spec car..Brougth in to my country in late 1996...UK spec and German spec Are there any differences?
I need some time to find an image of a BMW E36 with German specs. I don't know all the differences between UK and German cars, but your BMW has UK headlights. Are you driving on the left side of the road in Brunei? That's maybe the reason for UK headlights or UK imports. The picture below is the Denmark version which is mostly identical with the German version. Do you see the differences?[;)]

Those two pics i took it from www.cardomain.com.....[:)]
Sorry I mixed up the explanation between left side and right side driving. Brunei is following the UK system, thats right. (The opposide to the Continetal European system).

It is a little bit hard to explain the differences in the healights, but there are different parts inside the clusters. I can see everything.hehe[:D]

Some decent eyebrow modifications looking pretty well and makes the car more outstanding. So why not making a few changes? The BMW on the picture looks very sleek with it. On the other hand I would like to change only those parts you are really like by yourself. It's the same with buying clothes.[;)]

Take your time with it.[^]
Maybe some dealers from Malaysia or Singapore could send you the modification parts to your home after ordering on their website.

When someone from the UK is visiting Germany they only have to adjust the mirrors a little bit and sticking a very small tape on the corner of their headlights to prevent dazzling - That's all.

...Ah and not to forget to drive on the other side of the road, of course...[;)]
