Those Buicks are, in fact, surprisingly good off road .I've I'll bet my buick is more comfortable to drive than this, as well as better off road.
Another nail in the design coffin at BMW - must they keep producing vomit-inducing vehicles?
I think with exception of the 5-series, which carries off the Bangle styling quite well, and the Z4, every car they've launched this decade has been ugly, bland, pointless or all three.
If were lucky, all this crap will be remembered as a dark phase of history and BMW will return to form by 2012.
Note to BMW: Fire all of your design teams and outsource all of your visual stuff to Italian design houses (ie. Bertone and Italdesign Giugario)
Remind me: Why do people buy these things? Did they simply forget to bring their glasses to the car dealer and confused this thing with a 5 series?
