Ok, not chevette related at all, but I just love this photo and had to post it.

New desktop wallpaper for me.

One of each please!

With each generation the bottom's get bigger and the body's look bloated :(

Nice picture for the timeline though, have you got any more?

Any more of what in particular? I have loads of photos I could fill the forum with!

My particular favourite in the above photo is the e12 (far left), because it looks so slim and delicate next to the much bigger later cars. I do of course love the e28, it looks so much meaner than the earlier car, but it's all downhill from there on.

At the recent launch of the new 6 series at one of the Scottish main dealers, they made the fatal mistake of bringing in one of the very last e24 635 CSi Highlines with shadowline trim in black, a truly stunning car, and parked it next to the new one. The brand new bells and whistles £65k uber coupe got completely ignored by the invited guests, and they simply wouldn't leave the old one alone. The e24 is a stunning car anyway, but next to the new one it looks sleek and well defined, while it makes the new one look like an expensive bloated heap.

I think if I were to have a BMW it would be the earlier 6 series.

It’s the shark nose front end that does it for me :D

I do love the sharks. My ideal garage would contain an e12, e21, e23, e24, e28, and probably an e30 to complete the set.
