Yes, the grille is hideous. And to think I thought the E60/E61 was ugly when it came out. Now it's the good looking BMW...

The current fad with "aerodynamic" wheels like on that particular iX doesn't do the look any favours either.

Yes, it’s ironic how the Bangle-BMWs are now the good looking ones. That humongous beaver-teeth grille they have adopted is beyond ghastly. I was about to say those aero wheels are the least of it’s aesthetic problems. It’s good for long distance driving though: (but be sure to avoid the moose)


Forgot this though, a 996 in an interesting colour, not just, silver, white or black: (bit of a range, so heavily cropped)

Also, another Chinese EV-SUV, the Hongqi:

Holy Hongqi! A big barge from a big country.

Speaking of big EV's, this one is quite small but it's bigger than I thought! Well, I just had the silly fantasy that it would be as small as the micro-Hondas of yesteryear (I know this is probably not that special anymore, but this was the first one I saw or acknowledged).

That same Fiat 128 on another day and in daylight. Looks a little bit rougher, but still in remarkably nice shape despite everything, nice rusty steel wheels on it too.

And a Alfa Romeo 4C Spider. - Cool toy, but as with the Fiat 500 Abarth these have a distinctive but overly loud and dronig 4-pot noise, without any music to it.

Yeah that's a Santana PS-10, a Defender clone made after Santana stopped making Defenders under licence. Some areas were improved but it still has leaf springs and a selectable 4WD system rather than the full-time 4WD and centre diff. that the Defender had. The IVECO engine was arguably worse than the Td5 but maybe more reliable, ZF gearbox stronger than the R380.
