BMW 5-series GT
Actually, the 1-series oddly doesn't look too bad in that picture. Maybe the white kidneys (and other white bits) plus the Valencia orange color sorta go with the slightly odd styling. At least it has character and its own style (also compared to other BMW models). A helluva lot more exciting design than the new A3 which is just current and old Audi design cues stitched together. *yawn*
Previously known as Son of a B...5er!
To stay on topic, I'm going to vote the 1-series.
I loved the 1-series hatch when it first came out. It looks phenomenal with the M-Sport package.
It's like they pulled an Acura with the 1 series. From the beautiful 3g TL-S to the abomination that we get now.
Longtime BMW fan and driver (learned how to drive on a 3er), but BMWs have gotten uglier and uglier (esp. up front).
Can toss in the new 3 Series to the mix as well as the new X3 (which is worse than the X1) and it's not like the front of the 5 and 7 Series aren't lookers either.
It's a darn shame b/c they finally go the interior quality up to where it should be for their lower end models (3 Series, X3) - so BMW addressed that issue.

Why you wouldn’t (buy an Optima SX):
Because you have your eyes on the Frigidaire Limited Edition Camry that you saw last weekend at the neighborhood Autoplex.
I can't stand the new BMW front ends (though the X1 really isn't bad IMO).
The kidneys just need some kind of bumper-y thing or contrast rub-strip underneath them or they're super goofy looking.
All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.
