Not a fan of how the G20 looks compared to the G30! But looking forward to still seeing the G20 in person when it gets to my dealership, and more so with Msport... Definitely also looking forward to the M340 and test driving it, even though it will only come with a Automatic option!

Why are all the signature BMW character lines messed up? No line running through the door handles, and a regular hockey stick line? G30 and g01 were one of the last new BMW to stick to tradition. Everything new is

Wow, that 3-series is hideous from every angle....

"Nice" because it's new, but so is the new Lexus.

nice, can finally tell them apart (at least a little bit!)

Maybe should have held off tho until the shipping blocks were out of the suspension?? would like to see it sitting at normal ride height.

What's crazy is that the 3er has a much nicer interior now if you ask me.

Pretty debatable about the interior.

The interior materials of the G30 5er will always be a cut above the 3er.

And not to be biased but prefer the looks of my G30 inside and out hands down. It still looks like a BMW.

The G20 looks too plain on the sides. I am starting to see the Lexus comparisons unfortunately.

Unlike Mercedes, there's enough differentiation between their entry and mid-size cars.

I think the BMW-Toyota alliance has unofficially touched the G20...
