Design of the 159
Ok, can of worms time.
I followed a 159 today for a few miles on the M6, then M5.
I like the 159 from a styling point of view but there are a few areas where I think (IMHO) bits of it look wrong.
When looking at the front of the car, I think the bonnet line along the wings looks wrong, I cant put my finger on it but it just looks too straight.
The car I saw today looked as though it had 19" wheels on it. With these wheels it made the car look small, by that comment I mean it looked as though someone had reduced all the metal to about 95% of its original size and left the wheels as they were.
Now the positives, the front grill and lights are just soo damn good, it should be hidden from view to stop people staring at it.
The side profile is also just about perfect. Front overhang seems almost perfect in my eyes.
