I have to be honest, the car does look sharp from the front and back, but the side profile, IMO, is basic as best. The grill though, if they were going to go with any type of glow, the outline, again IMO, looks terrible. They should standard issue the light up grill like we have seen in past, or what I did on my x7 for a measly 60$ USD.

Overall, it's not a bad looking car. It's a headlight design away from truly being great. The overall silhouette is very Rolls-Royce-Like which works when we're talking about taking on the likes of the S-Class. Can't wait to see the reviews on this thing. Design is going to be controversial but I'm interested to see how everything else works as an overall package.

They definitely succeeded in making this car a head turner - unfortunately they didn't seem to care if you were looking in awe or gasping in disgust, as long as you looked at it

Yeah, and have you seen the tiny grilles on the A8 and S-Class too?

In all seriousness, it's not just the Chinese, it's the Americans who like this style, except when Americans like it, it's called "road presence" and when the Chinese like it, it's "bad design". The Chinese are just a convenient dumping ground for opinions.

Besides, as I've said many times, people who are in the market for this type of car want it to look like it's as expensive as it is. These customers don't want to buy a 7 and have it look like a 3. Most of the peanut gallery commenting on it isn't going to spend that much money on a car like this (those who do are probably into sports cars, not executive sedans), but if they were going to, they would change their tune and want it to look like they had spent a lot.

Yep. Make them as "bold" as possible I.e ugly as sin so you make a statement as you pull up.

As aside I think bmw might have beaten my brain into submission and I find myself liking the new m3 more grille and all....
