With some care, I think they could make their cars look a little more modern without losing their identity.

Looks aren't everything though obviously. I haven't been lucky enough to drive one yet.
I definitely see what you mean and agree in many respects, but in many ways, that's why I love the way they look. It's become a departure from stupid star patterned grills and M badges on regular models, and the like. The new "sporty" BMWs have gotten so unnecessarily shouty looking with nothing to show for it (see: the new "M"235i GC). It's what I love about Alpina. What they were doing when BMW was at their peak is what they're still doing today, if that makes any sense. I just wish the US got their full lineup.
