Nope. Even removing the Bangle Butt is just tinkering with the inherent, multifaceted ugliness of the current 6er.

The old 6 was GORGEOUS. A truly classic beauty. The new one will be good for people who dig modern art just because they think they should.

I always have thought of 1988 as the best year for Porsches and BMWs....2008 was pretty good for Porsche, but poor BMW.

I know they perform better....but, would you want to hook up with a gorgeous girl who was good, or an UGLY one who was better.....

sorry, I was 20 miles down the road before realizing that reply might not be taken in the joking manner I typed it. the $9000 he wanted was more than I wanted to pay and $9000 would be enough to get my 37, 57, 61 and maybe one more on the road.
