That's how it looks to me too. Maybe it's something funny with the picture itself.

Nothing good looking about a 4x4 bug. Lol.

At least 3/5 have a proper suv shape.

I'm not a huge fan of the big gaping holes BMW is using on the lower front bumpers of their non M cars. They're a little tacky IMO. The M cars at least have more sculpting in the details of the gaping holes. With that said the X6 is still a head turner for me, and selling well, I see them all over the place. This will be a winner for BMW.

Autobild are running a news story on the progression of BMWs X family.

From X1 to X7.

Here is a look at the production X4 which will launch early next year.

Step one, replace the hideous wheels... but it looks good for the most part!

Just keep a clicker (or sticky/pen) and each time you use the rear doors on your 335i, count it. After the few years until you are ready to make a decision, count how many times you used the doors and see if it's worth it!

In my case, I was really surprised at how little they got used in a year.

I don't think the X1 looks too bad, but the X3 is terrible. There's something wrong with the relationship between the cabin height and the hood length that makes it look "cute" at best and awkward at worst. Sort of like one of these little dogs:



Looks like they have that fixed on the X4. I think the X6 looks awesome and I can't wait to see an X4 in person.

95% of the time I defend BMW's model proliferation strategy - but having seen both the X4 and the 3 series GT, I'll say that most people won't be able to to tell them apart and I do wonder about whether they might be splitting a market segment too thin.

Technically they are on totally different platforms, but they sure do look the same.
