Nice looking car but that color doesn't suit it.

Holy wheel gap.

I hope manufacturers are ready for the run on coil over orders.

Sorry but I think BMW ruined the new 3 series.

1) Odd rear quarter panels
2) Tail pipes look like SO MANY OTHER CARS
3) Rear end is Lexus all the way
4) F30 looks better actually

I'm sure if I drive it I'll learn to "like" it but it just doesn't WOW me. I was looking forward to getting back to a 3 but this has me thinking something completely different. M3/M4 probably.

Sorry BMW.

I think I like the styling of the F30 over this. It just looks weird to me. I'm sure it's nicer in person but I haven't seen pictures that make me say "wow, I can't wait to get my hands on it".

Rear end looks pretty good to me, also keeping the BMW L-shaped lights (as opposed to the X5)

My main gripe at the moment with the design is the new kidneys and the standard bumper (looks very weird)

The rear and lines also look a lot like the q50. Even though I own a q50 right now, I'm not sure how much I like it on the 3 series.

And wait... At some angles, the door handles character line looks more prominent than the upper character line

Got some hips there. Nice. M3 should be killer.

It almost looks like an older 7 series to me.. And I'm not complaining. The new 3's are looking good imho. Curious to see what the new 4 will look like

I feel like since I'm a die hard MT guy, I have no other options outside of the M3/M4, "Pure" edition coming out in 2020 however for all you guys who drive auto, I'm jealous that you have so many other car manufacturers to choose from who can offer similar cars.

This new 3 series looks so generic, it burns me even more than I'm going to have to "live with these looks" when I get the M3 version.

Even in M340i trim it doesn’t look that good. Cross between IS350 And Genesis G70.

I'll live with that ugly hood horizontal line above kidneys on the F80-F82 before that Lexus rear of the G series..

I think there is going to be more polarizing hate or love for this car than the Supra!

Looks like BMW went to Marysville, OH, raided an old Acura warehouse and stole all the leftover exhaust tips from the 3rd Gen TL. Between the hideous Lexus/Acura/Toyota, whatever rear end, the crazy overall size and the Kia grills, this car is full of fail. At least it has decent power.

I'm very happy that I built and ordered my 2018 "Manual" Msport, F30, 340i in Sunset Orange before production stopped! I personally love the way the Sunset Orange looks on a Msport 3 series or M2 and the so far in Pictures, the new M8...

I know that it may not be a liking for everyone and that's completely fine with me! But, at the end of the day... I'm happy, so that's all that Truly matters!

So far, I only like the way the new 3 series looks in Msport and in most Pictures, the M340i looked nice! But, in these Pictures... I'm giving a thumbs down, not flattering and probably cuz the car really needs a bath!
