BMW's Head of Design doesn't wear a black rollneck jumper

He wears a green one.  And he has impossibly shiny white teeth and a designer beard.  This is Karim Habib, BMWs current Head of Design.  He ticks every designer box in terms of dress, accent, mannerisms and car driven (classic - a 2002).

Karim has only been in the job for a year but already their designs are moving away from the Godawful Chris Bangle influenced era.  The BMW range still contains some munters - 1, X6, X3 - but at least some of the new designs aren't that awful.

That humungous, bloated kidney grille remains though.
