Looks cool! Although I think the 330 is the better package

Agreed not really very BMW. Needs to be complete Murdered-out to hide the bad in the good.

The headlight designer and the grill designer seem to not really worked well together.
I can already sense the vendors on here designing an alternative to the throwing star grill.

On the upside though that Audi interior looks great!

Rear looks good to me at least in this dark color. Front grille is pretty bad. Hopefully better in person.

The interior design is interesting but I don't like the way the shifter is in this area of grey plastic which then sits in that aluminum trim. Looks out of place.

Looks nice but why is the grille closed?

The unique kidney design is certainly interesting but I can't help it feels a tad gimmicky. Rest of the car is a home run.

Not at all, it's why we love the cars in the first place. I'm seriously disappointed in the front end.

I'm having the hardest time trying to like the looks of this car. I really hope the way it drives is what makes this car attractive.

Yep, this thing is boring and ugly. That grill is just awful. All previous 3 series gens looked better. I hope they find a way to do something nice with the m3, but I am skeptical...

The more I look at it the less I like it. I sure hope the view in person changes that for me.

Wish I could unsee that grille

It seems that BMW has had a large turnovers of designers lately with each one designing a part without knowing about the others!

Up-close video. He says it looks better in person than in photos.

The virtual cockpit on/off animations are pretty slick.

When I first saw the pictures of G20s at the Paris Motor Show, I just couldn't accept the design of grills, lights, side lines and rears. They all looked so non-BMW. But, honestly, after these months, I think I get used to the new style of G20s, and kind of like it now.

Probably already been said but that grill looks absolutely atrocious especially with the top 1/3 blocked off. WTF were they thinking.

The M2 Competition grille is ugly and this one is uglier. The front is so fussy. The 330i M Sport is much nicer.

Actually given current marketing trends that's smart on their part and it saves on insurance rates too.
