Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

think modern day rules governing cars nowadays dictate a little of the styling , ie lights bumper treatment,.. which sometimes detracts from the overall look.
but hey who wants to drive a mundane vauxhall every day , the weekend car you look forward to driving is the right one..beauty as they say is in the eye of the beholder

The photo doesn't come close to conveying the way it makes the baby jesus cry.

I'd say you're right but then you can't blame everything on the rules, which in essence are there because we've learned more and are starting to put a value on people's lives a bit more.

I'd say that people using the same packages to get the same results in terms of efficient aero, good visibility of stuff like lights, decent views around the car etc have a bit to play too.

And, frankly, we've not got a cache of good car designers out there anymore, using pencils and paper to then go on and make something out of foam and clay, which in turn becomes a car.

It's cheaper to use a CAD package and hire an operator, than to nurture a car designer and use their talent.
