The Hofmeister kink is an automobile design feature created by the head of BMW design, Wilhelm Hofmeister, back in 1960. The subtle "kink" at the base of the C-pillar is a widely used cue within the BMW styling ranks, but it has been adopted by so many other designers. You can't walk down the street these days without seeing "the kink." Here's a few examples to get you started. ENJOY!
