Dan Neil is a renowned automobile journalist working for The Wall Street Journal. And in one of his more recent reviews, he went out and called the new BMW 1-Series M-Coupe a rather butt-ugly car. What is he smoking?

In his review, he write: “So what could possibly be wrong? Well, for one thing, the 1M Coupe is a total buttaface, one of the ugliest, most disturbingly wrong car designs in modern history. The addition of all the massive wheel arches, lip spoilers, aero mods and the so-called Air Curtain front spoiler helps not at all. This car is the last revenge of former BMW styling head Chris Bangle. Jeez, put a flag over its head and drive for glory.

Now, instead of making a poll trying to figure out what hallucinogen or psychedelic he was on at the time of his review, we’re going to ask you egmCarTech’ers. BMW has been known to make some aesthetically challenged and controversial designs. Remember the 2002 E65 7-Series? However, over time, I personally have grown to love BMW’s new design language, even from the Bangle era. That said, we here at egmCarTech would all agree to say that we think the 1-Series M-Coupe is one drop-dead sexy car.

What do you egmCarTecher’s think? Cast your vote and give us your two cents in the comments section below.
