Eh, I'm not as keen on the Z4-based coupe. I much prefer the Z3-based coupe.

That would have been a little screamer of a car.

For comparison sake, here's a "regular" Fiero body, not nearly as decent as the GT:
I loved the Fiero as a teenager, wanted it to be my first car. Of course I got a Toyota Celica GTS instead.

What do I own now as an adult?

Why, I own the dreaded Pontiac Aztek.

Maybe I have a thing for Pontiacs which others think are ugly... hmm, never know!

Yep, that's the one. The unconventional styling works for me, though I can see why it turns a lot of people off. I just don't like the styling of the Z4 coupe from the windshield forward. From the windshield back I'm OK with it.

Ditto. The Z3 M coupe and Roadster were lookers. I was behind one about a month ago, couldnt help but stare at it the entire time, unique little buggers they are.

I still think the Z4 M coupe is hideous, even worse looking than the base versions. Wait, is that even possible?!?!

Yes, hideous! Usually SAAB kicks out some pretty decent designs, but that is hideous.

It's been close to a year since this comment was made by me and I have to say I actually am beginning to think the CTS isn't so bad looking anymore.

The Element though still hasn't impressed me. Another car that I find ugly is one that has stickers all over it. Yeah, not just the back, the roof, the hood, the doors, too bad I didn't have a camera with me at the time. Could barely tell what color the car was.
