    OK this might just be me but this morning on the way to work I am sitting in traffic behind a small car. It's a similar colour to that dusty indigo-style colour that is quite common on the current 1-series advertisements and common on-road also. Anyway this car shared so many styling cues. Boot flanged slightly outward at the base of the rear window, then a wide concave panel where the boot release/key sits, then flanging out again at the bottom. Bumper colour coded, widening out to give a kind of womanly hourglass shape to the whole thing. Lights running up and down the side. Where have I seen this before? Oh yeah, the 1 series.

    What was the mystery car?




















    The new Fiat Punto. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Oh for shame. Check out the image!!!

    I must be blind, but I can't see anything that would remind me of 1-series. It reminds just as much of the Audi, even more actually since it's 3-door. Now both have 4 wheels, ..

    White A3 isn't that sexy either /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif. I kinda like 1-series with that grey-color (some sort of grey). Nice curves and details.
