The grill reminds me of the scene in spiderman 2 (with Tobey). Where he has the black suit on and its his eyes and the camera pans out to see him in the suit. Gotta say i do not like it at all, hoping you can upgrade to the classic black.

Not bad, the silver is very Audi. Not sure about the back. The orange cancer stick is horrible looking and even bigger. Really messed up the line. Otherwise looks great.

Not sure about all the complaints. Looks light years ahead of the F30 when it debuted.

The grille terrible, but that's usually fixable with upgrades.

That laser sticker is a problem.

Unfair comparison of a basic F30 and a MSport.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

I am sure it will handle much better then the previous model but the look is just not there

It's sad because I am so excited for G80 M3 but the rear really bugs me

Grille just doesn't work and the very top that goes into the bonnet makes it look cheap.

Hope it looks better in the flesh.

The front end looks like the car went through a chain-linked fence but the rest is a nice upgrade.
Excited to see the new M3/4!

Love the cockpit here. Still nothing to really like about the exterior design though...and the grill. C'mon, really?

Hoping this is pre-production and subtle replaces gimmicky. Lexus has demonstrated that some of their styling generates polarity among buyers - hopefully BMW avoids this trap. The current 340 looks great

Those exhaust tips attached to the bumper look horrific - you can see the muffler through the opening. I'd have preferred they just kept the dual tailpipe like the G20 330i has.
