Different tastes. I like the dynamic look of the TOS nacelles. The swirling energy of the bussards looks more powerful and exciting than the static blue grill.
Blue grill? The grille was black if I recall unless you mean blue as in "blue steel" or something.
I was talking about the inner side grills, of course. The art deco front-ends, were another element I would rather not have.
Actually, in TMP, the colors were never "bright primary colors" like TNG gave us. In my favorite image of the TMP ship (a high-resolution poster giving a SPECTACULAR view of the ship from aft-port, below) the lighting on the nacelle inner grills was actually PINK...
