This. Bangle didnít personally design a lot of the cars, both good and bad, but he was head of the design department during that time.

In fact, Christopher Chapman, who initially designed the 1er, also designed the X-Coupe, which was the first BMW to use Bangleís then controversial flame surface concept.
