Agreed. The extreme camera movements/transitions make it look all except cool.

Is it me or does this resemble the Infiniti Q60 from the A pillar back? First bmw introduces a Lexus IS inspired 3 series...now an Infiniti inspired 4 series...what are they thinking!

Sorry this has probably been said many times over already.

Wonder why put all the efforts of really changing the exterior and going way overboard but making a carbone copy of the interiors!

Nothing other than a face lift can help this vehicle. Its a shame. My 4 series lease is ending and I really wanted to get another one. But I can't in good conscience put that monstrosity in my garage.

Unfortunately LCI will not make it 6" shorter and 300 lbs lighter, even if they fixed the nose.

He referred to the floating BMW logo on the center caps as a "Propeller".

It's the Bavarian Flag! Not a propeller.

Lose the nose and it might lose 6 inches and 300 pounds!

Why did they give the fully kitted out M-Performance version the base-model headlights? 🤮

It's as if they know this car could be a hit or miss and they're using every chance to promote it (aka justify it's "athletic" design ). I feel like the 8 series didn't even get this much press and that's the flagship.

Love how he says the rear seats in back allow passengers to enjoy a "sporty cou..pay feeling"

That's a long cry from ultimate driving machine . ..I'll say it again the dash is worse than the grille...can't get over the terrible digital cluster.

I just don't understand why companies don't do proper benchmarking. Audi was first to market in this technology space with the Virtual Cockpit, which was well received. It provides proper round speedo and tach. BMW was late, and did a poor job.

I agree. We have a 2020 X3 M40i and while I love the interior, it is the same as every other new BMW. You think that BMW could be a little more creative and have some individuality between their models.
Funny thing is, they keep covering it up on prototypes even though there is nothing new to hide

If you insist on being correct... Be correct... it’s not the “Bavarian Flag!“ It includes the state colors from the Bavarian flag, but it is not the flag.

Really hate those - on my 4 GC, the xenon lights look great with a full set of rings - not like the new models where anything but the expensive laser lights looks like they ugly on purpose!
