Ive figured out the problem with th 4c!

Ok-im ready and willing to take abuse/constructive criticism/opinions etc-I t would be nice to hear your comments!
I nearly bought one 6 months ago-but did not. I might still get one, but at he time something did not feel quite right, so I did not get one.
Looking at the car-in real life-not staring at a brochure- the back end and 3/4 view is absolutely stunningly perfect in every way.
The problem-in my view-is from the top of the windscreen and foreword from there.
I know it would affect handling/dynamics etc, but I really do feel that if the 4c was 600mm longer from the top of the windscreen and foreword, it would look twice the car it is!
Look at a side view, and put a longer bonnet on it, more rake on the windscreen and a longer wheelbase, and I think it would be perfect! 6C MAYBEE???

It's Subjective.

I don't like the headlight but it would stop me getting one. Cost, my size, practicality and the stereo head unit stops me buying it. There's no perfect car it all about compromise.

very slight aesthetics doesn't sound like a deal breaker. Drive it, if it make's you feel good, buy it.

600mm?? That is a lot. And what would be the point? There is nothing under the front bonnet.

I once said if the bonnet was a 300 mm longer, it would be the perfect design. After years going to autoshows and dealers I made up my mind.
Now that I have one and can see it every day, I'm so used to it, it really is a great looking car.

Perhaps 600mm was a tad much!-but it does need a bit of a stretch from the top of the windscreen foreword.-I know there's nothing but fresh air in there so another extra bit of fresh air wont harm!!!
Giulietta64-thanks-I agree, and it wont stop me getting one-my massive house project is stopping me getting one at the moment! hopefully a different story in a few months!
