Daleks from Munich?

The new Daleks made me think of the difference between the original Mini and the BMW Mini. Both new models are larger and more colourful and polished. They seem better fed and glossier but they've lost some of the charm of the original. I was behind an original model Mini yesterday and it was surprising to be reminded about how small they are and "tinny" (as well as tiny). Of course I wish all Mini owners well and I know the Doctor will defeat the Daleks (and they will be back) but there is still going to be a part of me which will remember the first Daleks and the original Minis.
