    Wow, as I look at the air flowin' over the beautiful, salacious, body of the e30m3, sportin' a Cd of 0.32... I think... wow, cars today also have finally attained the 0.32 blow number but... their front end looks like the lips of the purple hamburglar and their profile looks like sperm. e30m3... the only car

      Hahaha, awesome! Seriously though, if BMW can design an aerodynamic brick in the mid 80s, why the hell can't designers now design a car that actually looks good, with similar drag? Cars currently on the market are all ugly.

        not aerodynamic today because of the consumer demand for BIGGER GRILLS. yikes, when will the fad be over?

            Thought the ugly front end was for pedestrian protection. It causes them to bounce on the hood vs the windscreen and over the top.

              The goal of aerodynamic design is to get better fuel mileage and comply with the pedestrian crash criteria. Since all wind tunnels use the same air, they mostly come up with the same results as to the shape of any given car. The other problem is that with all the required safety features light weight to improve fuel mileage is the goal and more power is the answer, but then the mileage goes down. It's a vicious chase they are on, which will become even that much more difficult as autonomous cars become required. We have maybe 10-20 years for that to arrive. Enjoy it while we can. The availability of manual transmission is close to zero now, as another example of what's happening. Good appearance is next.

                Don't forget the gigantic grille of the new Concept 4.
