2011 BMW 528i: Into the Hood

December 10, 2010


I have a confession to make regarding our 2011 BMW 528i. I like the way it looks. It's overall lines are on the conservative side and I'm ok with that. But what really catches my eye is the hood.

To me, a good-looking hood makes or breaks a car. If I have to look across it for miles on end, it should be aesthetically pleasing. Sometimes sharp angles do it. Sometimes it's a big hood scoop. In the case of the 528i, the smooth curves are what work for me. I'm not sure why they have me so captivated, but I am. Am I the only one?
