I can't say I am impressed.
The particular colour is washed out, the rear is everything but sporty.
It does look like a luxurious sedan of A brand, but nothing aggressive, nothing individual.
Not to mention the ugly rims. Look like he got them for Christmas from Grandma...

Sadly the design is not a step forward. Conservative and a tad boring. When you factor in the number that will be sold it will just blend in with the mass market

It may shock you to learn you're not the first person to make that comparison.

Sunset Orange? Looks more like Rusty Nail Brown. Lexus getting adventurous with paint these days!

Looks better here than some of the other pics I've seen of it in the elements... still don't like the funky Hoffmeister kink or the character line treatment on the sides; too fussy. I prefer the single, bold shoulder line of the F30/F80 running through the door handles.

That would be a valid suggestion if the forum postings here were of high opinion on the new design.

The people here are griping because they DON'T want to go to an Audi or Lexus.

Posted comments about "fake exhaust" always give me a good chuckle. Just because the tips are not round, does not mean they are fake. Ask Audi to show you how to properly build a "fake exhaust" system.

I come from an Audi and would always go back, as I do like the design features in general! BUT - a BMW should not look like an Audi or Lexus or any other brand! Each should maintain individualism. I feel that has been omitted here.

You're missing the point.
We don' want Lexus design in our cars.
I will leave it at that.

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!
What the heck is an M-Sport? Besides a few absolutely ridiculous "M's" and cosmetics. I'm on the brink of tearing off my "M" badge, real "M" badge.

Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of the direction the exterior styling is going on the 3 series. Maybe I'll feel different when I see one in person but not impressed yet...

I'm sure it will come into its own but I totally agree with the Lexus/Mercedes comments. You can't argue the designs are too similar.

Why is it that BMW can't have proper colors?

Sakhir? Ugly, Sedona Red? Ugly!

Fire and Rosso Corsa please!
nonsense sedona red is gorgeous redish/orange and even brown at times had it for years 7 years lost count of how many people praised the color.

Too each his own i guess... Since i love sunset orange as well i guess ima sucker for that redish orange vibe
