Here's an interesting commentary on the value of Chris Bangle's political capital at BMW

Highlights for the article:

In truth, it's a pretty negative interview. Panke seems to be a former McKinsey consultant

Actually, Panke doesn't give Bangle much of a vote of confidence in the interview. As far as I can see, Bangle's name isn't even mentioned in the published version ...

i really like the bangle quote i read a week ago in a magazine, he said "if you're going to be pushing a car company forward, you're going to leave many fans behind"

or something like that, you get the point. i thought it was an interesting way to look at it.

Didn't Bono say that when they came out with Zootopia?

did i read that BMW Q1 sales for 2003 fell 19.7%! thats a huge chunk!
maybe they'll fall enough that they'll drop the prices on cars, offer $4000 back and give 0% financing like american cars do. then i can afford my 3 series :rock

yup, it is VERY low and very sexy...!
getting off to the 7 series is unacceptable. an M5 is ok, or an 8 series, but not the 7 series. even if they do have 20 way power seats that move in like 7 dimensions :wub:

maybe a newer model would get rid of those wrap-around headlights, the one thing i hate about that car, but i know that will never happen since the new 5 has that too
