The grille with the Y things is as bad as this old one :

Come on bro, you are better than this. At least post a pic with an Msport or M340i
In basic trim g30 looks way better than f30

The seats look wonderful. I hate my F30 seats. Every day I miss my E90 Sport seats.

I look forward to test driving the new M340i while looking forward to the GC version as a buying target. Still unsure whether all visual cues are ones I like. I like literally everything in my current 2017 F36.

Kind of forgot about that one. Yes, creating a fake upper grill section on the hood was as bad an idea then as it is today.

Looks great all around, curious around the price and whats standard vs optional... obviously will have more std than the 330 ( as is usual for the 40i models)

cant wait to take one out for a spin

Is it just me or does this car seem big in photos? I feel like I'm looking at a 5 series.

Well at least they did a really good job with the interior, but it seems like a lot of the exterior designs don't compliment each other. That "T" looking grille design doesn't match at all with the lower hexagon grille and I think the tailights are really underwhelming. They are boring and not very aggressive at all, a complete 180° from the f30 lci taillights which I love. Why wouldn't they just keep the same grill that they know is is iconic and has been a successful design for decades? And those exhaust pipes are the opposite of sporty looking, the whole rear imitates a Lexus very well.

It's huge, yes. Wider and longer.

According to Scott26 there will be an all black M Performance optional grille available as well.

Scott26 said you can't change the grille on the m340i

Those laser warning triangles are scary hideous. The worst part is you'll have to split open the housing (and risk leaks) to hide or remove them.

the tips are flared but directly connected to the pipes, just like in X3 M340i or Z4 M40i, and have no contact with the bumper whatsoever. In fact, there is heat shield around the the tips to keep them from melting the bumper.

Looks OK from 3 feet away but close up its fussy and incongruent. I actually think other colours and blacking out the details would be best. Interior is a big step up imho.
