Handsome car, I don't know why but in the white colors, it looks to me like it could be the 7 series. Looks as big as one and design seems like it could be the 7er facelift.

This must be the best new feature on the 3-series. This must prevent steeling bmw parked on the driveway with the keys inside the house using a signal repeater. I wonder if the X5 I have on order also will have this?

"New movement sensor in key monitors if key is being carried (and therefore is always transmitting) or has been put down on a table, for example, allowing it to switch into standby mode with the transmit function deactivated"

Overall I like the design. But the rear reminds me of a Lexus? Is it just me?

I know the headlight kink is suppose to pay homage to the E46, but they could've kept it sleeker just like the 8 series.

Jesus wept, has anyone else priced themselves a car online?

Irritating that I was forced to select a sunroof to get electric seats and nasty belts / adaptive suspension to get the brakes. Plus missing quite a few F30 options...

A 320d xDrive MSport with regular paint and regular leather came to over £50k 😮😮😮.

I got a 335d xDrive MSport 6 months ago with every option bar sunroof and towbar including full individual merino interior and it was £56k list.

Would I like a powered boot lid and gesture control? Maybe, but not at those prices! I shall be sticking with mine for a long time!

Laser lights doesn't really make the car appearance different either. Looks better packaged on the x5

Very curious as to what material is being used on the transmission tunnel in the interior. It looks like some really glossy black plastic. I really hope it doesn't feel cheap. So much of the F30's interior feels cheap because of the hard plastics used.

Everyone will be saying this initially but every enthusiast who buys a 330 msport will be buying the bay knockoffs of those and you know it. I bet they look great in gloss black.

So the only differences i can see is the rear diffuser and the front bumper fog locations are different. Id assume interchangeable parts from the standard msport not requiring a whole new front bumper.

Different requirements for between the old regulations (F30) and new regulations (G20).

Aaand, it has such a low drag coefficient! pretty impressive
Digital Key will be available with the next iOS 12 update on iPhone 6s and newer models later this fall. Awaiting regulatory approval. iDrive is Android based since ID5 so there's no reason to do a double overlay with Android Auto.

It's still there and can be done a few different ways. Have a look at the two center vent flow volume control knobs in different images and you'll see the indicators in various modes - black (off), blue (cool), white (auto), red (warm).

overall, it's a nice design inside and out. A few little things here and there I would have done different. But it's a nice car.
the skyscreamers claiming it's total junk can just fuck off

I keep reading variations of the same answer. I am sorry but that's not a solution. M3 will be much more expensive than m340i let alone 330i with 6mt. Please think what you're writing since not everyone has such a wide delta of a budget that they shop for a BMW between 40K and 80K. That's just dumb. Might as well say forget g20 and get a year old 911 with 6mt

The rear half kinda looks like they hired some Audi & MB designers to bring in elements of each brand. However, the front end looks very BMW and on-brand.

Have a look at Seat/Skoda and Peugeot concepts/production models . Becomes really clear who the designers are. Hyundai/Kia are the opposite since many BMW execs jumped ship and went there over the past few years.
