Very cool to see this out. The blue launch color looks awesome. In the profile shot I really see a lot of F30 similarities.

The black version with the funcky grill is nice too!

It looks like they've taken all the designs from lexus, audi and mercedes and mashed them together.

Kia is so influential! Whenever there's a new BMW, people here say it looks like Kia.

Anyway, IMO it's the best looking 3 series since E46.

The UK configurator pegs the MPG on the 330i at 47, that can't be right? That's a 10+ MPG jump over the current modal.

Now all I need to know is exactly what these "on sale" dates mean for US delivery. My lease is up in February and I can probably extend a few months if necessary.

Thank God at least they didn't take the duct taped to the dash ipad screen from the Audi and made it sort of integrated, well at least not rectangular

Love it ! I don't care if the back resembles a bit of Lexus IS and Audi A4. There will always be whiners out there who'll never be satisfied with any design. Overall it looks great and they've improved nearly every aspect of the car from power, chassis rigidity, suspension/ride quality, interior, cabin space. Can't wait for reviews.

F30 looks really dated compared to this tbh, especially regarding the lights and interior. (even the mesh they used for the intake grilles on the G20 seems more nice/clean) I am also glad they got rid of that weird break on the hood on the f30. I still prefer the shape of the F30 tho especially in the rear

BMW's wheel offerings have taken a real dump lately. I know they can design good looking wheels because some of their recent concept wheels look great, but the ones they offer on their production cars are so generic and boring. Especially this G20 and the M2C.

Edit: I just saw that they're offering the concept hommage wheels as optional m-performance. That's a pleasant surprise!

so while everyone is harping on the aesthetics, can we talk about the engine?? 380+ hp, 0-60mph in 4.2?!?! That's pretty damn impressive!! This will not be a bad step down from my F80 in a couple years!

Not bad. But why downgrade the rear M sport brakes from 2 piston to 1? And no more M logo on rear caliper..

This is lovely. M will only take it to next level.

I love that the hood line is interpreted with grille again. Not much to complain about here besides lack of manual, and bloated kidneys. But really, they knocked interior and exterior design out the park

I had reservations ordering an EOP M3 but im glad I did. I hope M does something special for the G80, But I dont know how they can even put lipstick on this pig.

Interior is awesome but I don't think its a huge leap forward. I cant say it dates the F30 interior much.
F30 interior is effectively obsolete.

Feel sorry for anyone that bought a 2018 F30 instead of waiting for this.

There are. But this has been rumored for quite a while so perhaps what you're seeing is tag people have come to terms with this sad reality
