Yeah, I think looks are just subjective - different things appeal to different folks. I liked the attention to detail and thoughtfulness of the person doing the design. It does look very different and might actually look good in-person.
On the same note, I do think that the stock color schemes can be a bit more adventurous than what they're now. Of course, one could go all black and do away with all colors but I'd like to see BMW come up with something less boring than what's on offer.
