The new one looks a little lower, but maybe because it's wider

Nice upgrade. New one looks great.
Looks like putting my F80 beside a stock E46 difference.

In these pictures, the rear of the new 3 almost looks like an Audi A4...

The new 3 looks far too much like other cars. tail lights of f30, for example are undeniably "3 series" not saying the g20 doesn't look good. It just doesn't stand out as a bmw.

Will reserve early insights and observations until my own test drive. Since 4 cylinder engine does not appeal to me, will wait until M340i is available.

Finally a great shot! Awesome.

The G20 appears to have a wider stance with the rear tail light design. Will be interesting to see if handling improves.

Ehhhh. Not feeling the back in this trim/spec. Front looks very nice. Is it lighter in weight overall?

Not much "3 series" here, the tail light also look like lights straight from Lexus. In an attempt to look sporty, BMW did what every other manufacturer does. I'd still prefer my F30🤙🏼

I think the F30 will age nicely. The G20 rear and tail lamps are a little to Lexus like for me. Other than that, this seems like a completely natural evolution to me.
