Imitation is the greatest flattery!

It seems like BMW are desperately trying to make the RT right and it seems like they are trying to make it more like the Trophy....

Here is the latest colour scheme... looks just like Pacific Blue to me!

Pacific blue with fugly decals! I would love to be in the review meeting where these types of decisions are made. I would require there to be at least one Italian in the room  ;) 

Say what you will about Italian reliability, they have an eye for beauty!

At the risk of setting some people off... I kind of like it.

I kind of like it too... finally it has a little oomph to it rather than dull greys, and blacks...

And those extra decals give them an excuse to charge you even more for the multi colour design! Way to go BMW!  :020:

Now all they have to do is get rid of that buzzy boxer engine and give it electronic suspension that won't kill you and it might be a worthy competitor!

Not sure I like it - a bit too "fussy" for me.
Might suit the Australian market though - with those Boomerangs up front  :745:
