@WasGTIthenGTOthenNOVAthenGTInowA4 Yea, the barren side is a bit strange. It's not even like the 7 gained that much actual chonk from batteries - the sides are about as tall as the outgoing car. Older BMW's had a nice feature line that ran the whole length of the car at about doorhandle-level. Over the years that line hiked up and up, and at this point it's tucked right under the window line.
as it currently stands, if I were to go electric it'd be the ipace, it looks alright (even though I typically hate crossover/SUVs) as anything cheaper than that sucks on range and/or performance, Tesla's even the model 3 seem to be more pricey (2nd hand)
@Nick-Hynds I’m not big on the massive grille on this and some other newer Astons, but this is probably what the gopping vanced grille should’ve looked like imo. I still prefer the regular hunter grille, which I think almost looks good, like something was lost in translation from sketch or something.
@WBizarre Sacco was very evolutionary, though, so I don't think it's far off to imagine a modern Sacco interpretation at least being clearly identifiable as relating to his '60s and '70s designs. (i.e. rectangular grille, 'ponton'-esque fenders, wide-set rear taillights, etc). The Wagener 'revolution' certainly killed Mercedes design as we knew it, and whatever continues to live on is just the contemporary status quo, whether for better or worse.
@mercedes_500e_w124 I wish I could buy one now, because you know they'll only go up in value. I know 5 years ago you could get one for 30k grand, Which is impressive because they were like 40k new, a car only loosing 25% of its value over 10 years is pretty good, but now 45k is "cheap".
It is funny that by the nature of the car, 40-50,0000 miles is a "high mileage" example
@wbizarre Eh. At some point I probably won't be dailying an E9X. I'm not going to trade my e92 for an X1, but a new 3 series? I could see that. Honestly, it makes a case for either a 3 for me or an X3 for the wife.
