If you are interested in what progressed BMW styling this is well worth your time. Like him or hate him, there is no denying Chris Bangle had a huge impact on the automotive industry. He also is responsible for pushing BMW design into the future. His designs angered many purists and to be honest, were too much (especially his take on the rear). He pushed the designs too far but there is no denying BMW needed a push and to break free of what had become too refined and too similar. This is an interesting look inside the mind of Bangle.
