I hate the look with the headlights touching the grill. I'm still holding out hope that this won't be the case, I much prefer the look of the new X3 grill, which does not extend to the headlights

Meh. Nothing to write home about. I hope it looks better than this when we see actual pics because this is a bit disappointing.

Wake me up when BMW comes out with a RWD 2er sedan to replace the spirit the 3er has lost.

Yeah way too Lexus GS350ish. I hope it looks nothing like this.

And BTW someone come up with a mod to cover that nasty sensor on the bottom of the front bumper. Surely they could have done a better job hiding that. Looks like a straight after thought design decision...

Good renders, thanks. The rear perspective looks great.

The back is better than the front, though I'm not feeling the exhaust tips. Hoping it looks better IRL.

LOL @ all of you getting worked up over some crappy renders.

The 3-series has always been a reasonably handsome car.

My concern is the driving dynamics. Will it return to being a BMW? Or will it continue to be numb and boring like the F30? They absolutely shat the bed on the current model.

My thoughts exactly, i am sure it will be "better" in every way to the F30 series, still i will never buy a brand new car again, no matter how much "better" they get.

Looks like its caught up to the E60 5 series in terms of size. I agree that the rear looks too much like a Lexus, I hope the real one doesn't come out looking like that. And we used to complain about the Bangle era cars.

Wait...

I only came here to read the complaints lol

Won't offer critique to a render, will reserve comments for the actual design upon release.

I was always a big fan of the lights connected the grill but I've grown tired of it. I really like on my G01 how they are no longer connected.
