Is it me, or does the c30 have an attractive front end, meh side, and a w.t.f. rear end?

I keep wanting to grab a c30, but then I go flaccid once I go over to the hatch and see the hideous tail lights and schmuck looking bumper.
Only if there were an alternative tail light design and noticeably different styling rear bumper cover would I pick up a c30.

The 40 is like a dog dragging its butt on the carpet smearing poop around. Not a fan of those.

70 series wagon or a two door something, turbo and manual are a must.

Really id rather go all out with a wagon/hatch again if I were entertaining more than two doors.
The functionality and mini-bus like feeling just adds that pizzazz.
