Spotted G20 3 Series out and about!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I was out and about today in Garmish with the wife. I walked up on this beauty in Portimao Blue. Honestly at first I thought I was looking at a Lexus until I saw the grill. The G20 looks a lot more aggressive and I love the lines. I have high hopes for the M being released. The inside is a lot more cleaner now as well, in my opinion.

Sorry for the horrible pictures but it was getting late and there was a line already surrounding the car.

Nice. Probably thought it was a Lexus because a) it's a sedan and b) the color is actually really close to the Lexus GS's Ultrasonic Blue Mica:





For a brighter blue, I like this particular shade of blue quite a bit. Not too boy racer, but still pretty sporty and fun.

Thanks for sharing. The colour is really great, but the chrome strips in the grill are a bit too much bling bling for me. In black it looks better.

Given the car has been launched in Paris, seems daft for them to cover the badge.

Also, show me anyone in Germany who does not recognise those grilles at first sight and I'll show you a blind person

Rear definitely not BMW-like. But seeing the side profile and front, one can hardly be confused about it being a BMW.

That Blue is just amazing! I can't wait to see it in person, along with how Sunset Orange will look on the new G20! Because on My current F30, Sunset Orange looks great!

Damn, I was hoping the leaks were unflattering, but no. BMW has killed the 3 series. It's an unoriginal uninspired design. The previous generations of 3 series had design elements being imitated by almost every manufacturer. This new one looks like the designer was particularly smitten by his 18 year old neighbors is200

Why are we taking design inspirations from the two least respected luxury brands?

I had 9 customers waiting to order a new 3 when they came out, all 9 of them have decided to go with either Mercedes or lexus after seeing this abomination. This thing better come with a sticker 10k cheaper than the f30

That front is cartoonish in the pic... the blue looks nice, though.

Seeing the tailights in a darker setting definitely gives it better visual appeal and it looks more BMW then Lexus

People probably think it's a lexus because it looks like a BMW had drunk sex with a lexus, and the abortion didnt take.

Huh. You're right it doesnt look like a Lexus from the back. It looks like a Honda accord, which is exponentially worse. Those are literally identical to the latest accord tails

I saw a whole load of white Sport Lines on a transporter truck in Munich the other day.. I have to say it definitely does look better in the flesh than it does in pictures...

This car is definitely going to do well for the company
