Considering BMW NA is based in NJ, it's not a surprise the vehicle was seen on Garden State Parkway. Looks good!

Looks great. I really don't get the dislike of the rear end (or any of the car). I think it's fantastic.

Nice but why have they put the wheel barrow pipes on the 330 and hidden (the different shapped) ones in the m340?!

To differentiate the 30i/40i models since both have dual exit exhausts. The same applies on the new 5 series, X3, etc.

Why is it that BMW can't have proper colors?

Sakhir? Ugly, Sedona Red? Ugly!

Fire and Rosso Corsa please!

Yes I know but that was the good thing about the x40i range in the f30 the wheel barrows signified something different. Should be 6 pots only!
I just think it should have been the other way round.

Kinda looks like a Lexus rear end. As with most new designs we tend to resist the cahnge but this one has no appeal to me. We will see.

Like it except for the rims. Too small and black is bad on sunset.

That flat surface culminating in a shared edge vertically on the flank of rear bumpers looks horrific. I'll wait until I see one in the metal, but that reeks of Audi and Subaru - definitely doesn't look polished at all.

Just look at that shit hodgepodge of style lines beginning at the lower outboard corner of the rear passenger taillight in the first photo.

This carries the look of being penned in a budget meeting. We can save $11 of plastic per car if we just cut the rear quarter panel off right here, who needs cohesion of design anyway?
