Yes it has a rising glass house similar to THE 8. With a more dynamic roofline and a dropping characterline. The broad haunches at the rear are more defined and organic. The front is defined by its full-length kidney grille.
It's a stunning looking car and I am anticipating the controversy its front end will bring. I can't wait.

So the grill and bumper lines of this 4 do not support the renders of the m3/4 front that everyone was going crazy over...

The tail light design is looking good so far from what's shown. Overall the body looks nice and sporty, but we'll see about the grille. Hopefully the growing pains are over with the new grilles and BMW nails it with this new 4er.

Don't like the shape. Miss the classic BMW 3-box design. This is very rakish and kinda 90s American looking...

Can't wait either.
I will tell you whether it's a hit or a miss.

I don't think that's the real hood line. Scott mentioned before the hood will meet the grills.

The grill does look like it protrudes and is overall big. But it's definitely not as tall as anticipated.

You can clearly see the front headlight, grill, and bumper look very similar to the 8 series

that just makes zero sense.


An item that is stunningly beautiful and perceived that way by many is typically NOT controversial.

Of course.. an item that is stunningly horrific and perceived that way by many typically IS controversial.

Pick one or the other because your hyperbole doesn't get me excited at all and borders on oxymoronic.

Agree, which I'm not too particularly fond of with the way the 8 looks. Outgoing F8x has such a great front end. Hard to beat it.

I agree as I own an F82 and love the front end of the car. But this cracks me up though, because I remember when BMW first showed off the previous gen of 3 series with a similar front end and people were absolutely up in arms about the way the headlights touched the grill and it was basically the ugliest thing ever to happen to the 3 series.

If this is what we're getting then I am very happy. Car will be absolutely gorgeous. A true successor to the beauty and elegance of the E90 while taking BMW design in a more exciting direction. Personally i am happy the tall grill of classic BMW's is making a comeback.

I was hoping that the grills would be a little more prominent than what I see revealed here.

Fully agree with this! Wish they would quit with the fastback style and go back to a nice coupe shape again.

The basics are there...

Aesthetically, the shape and proportions look right, now for this car to take off they need to get the design details right.

Shark snouts not beaver teeth please!
