Completely agree with you! The design is a perfect blend of aggressive and silky smooth. Extreme eye candy!

Going the way of Audi or Lexus with these huge grills?

IMO they haven't built an ugly car in modern times yet. Maybe a bit to conservative a bland, but not ugly. We will see, there is always a first time for everything as they say.

We are obviously a bit biased, but I agree. Other than the 90s 8 series cars the F80s are my favorites look wise from BMW.

Nope, at least you sit on the inside. One could always walk up to their car from the rear I suppose.

The four series concept looks pretty good esp from the rear.

I for one think give credit to the M division for making this new M3 looking totally different from the bland 3 series. Spice up things in life.

I see a little I8 from the back a good thing, the front not sure what they are thinking, not so much.

It does look a little crazy now, but I bet when we start to see them in the wild our opinions will change.

That's gotta be the ugliest front end I've ever seen. It looks like a pigs face with a big goofy smile! Once you see the face, you can't unsee it. No way I'd buy that.

No, it doesn't.

Shame, except for the grill/bumper it's a damn sexy concept.

When the audi first cam out with the gaping maw I hated it. Then I got used to it and accepted it.
However, you can get used to just about any misfortune in life, but that does not make it a good thing.
I'm seeing the resale value of my F80 going up in a couple of years.
