Pretty sporty, but I'm not digging the wheels (...although I never really have). The side profile looks good though.

Nope. AC Schnitzer should have stayed in the 80s as Alpina. Both make good cars worse and are no longer needed. If they ever were...those wheels Alpina, c’mon.

You don't like those Alpina wheels?! I like them......on an Alpina. They remind me of some of the classic BMW 5 Series wheels.

I like the way this car looks. With these wheels it reminds me of a MB c-class for some reason. It's not enough to dislike it overall though.

Really? The Alpina B5 Estate makes the standard 5 Wagon worse with its 600hp and sport tuned suspension?

If we're strictly talking about cosmetic changes then I suppose you are entitled to an opinion, but one cannot argue with what Alpina and AC do for BMW performance.

The wheels aren't my favorite either, but I see what they're trying to do with them...a more modern take on the Type III's

This could end up looking better than the M3 if the 4 series front end turns out looking like a dog's dinner and still gets placed on the M.

Looks so much better! Not a fan of the wheels but the front and rear look very aggressive.

Love the side profile. Highly doubt the US will have an option for the quad tip exhaust though. I've driven several G20's and have to admit they've really grown on me!

Rear end reminds me suspiciously too much of a Camry

I feel like BMW M Performance parts have really taken these tuners' lunch money.

I mean, looks aside, M Perf also maintains the warranty. Seems like a no brainer.

Depending on your taste(s), there's a lot not to like about that car.

Exactly. Looks aside. To each their own. Absolutely.

I happen to like the looks as well so the warranty and financing are icing on the cake. I think this represents the majority, and so introducing the MPerf parts line was one of the smarter moves for BMW in recent memory.
