Chris Bangle leaving BMW and the automotive world

BMW lovers rejoice – Chris Bangle is moving on. Bangle has the unique distinction of having his name used to describe pretty much any ugly car – usually the styling is described as being “Bangle-ized”.

Love him or hate him, he made his mark in automotive history for either a) ruining BMW’s designs or b) carrying them into the next century - depending on your point of view.

Personally, I think he trashed BMW’s styling, so hopefully his successor can undue some of that damage. But given that it’s his right hand man taking the helm, that might be too much to hope for.
