Really interest what the price point will be, on par with next Gen M3/M4?

Great video, especially if you understand German. Most importantly, this i4 infotainment screen will indeed be produced.

I'm sure the vertical format is intentional but to me it is effective especially viewing from a smartphone. I think this is the very first vertical video that I like.

I do like it...still not getting used to the grill size.

Don't get the side mirror, should be all replaced with cameras. I do love the interior.

I believe mirrors are a federal requirement in the US at least.

It's decent looking but to me it looks like a GT. I would like something leaner looking for a sedan or coupe..

As much as I dislike the new grilles, I could live with it if the upcoming 4-series/M3/M4 drive well.

I still can't get past the grills. Take this car and put the 8 series grills on it and it's so much better.

I like it. It flows well. Love how they lowered the car and 22"+ wheels and tires. I hope the transition to production stays close to concept. I'm tired being fooled over and over when real car is released.

I stopped watching at the start when he said "how did you guys manage to make this masterpiece". Like... even if it was the most beautiful car in the world, you just wouldnt say that.

Ok, i didnt stop watching because a bit later he asks, how is it possible that if you remove the badges, the car still looks like a BMW. DID YOU NOT SEE THE MASSIVE GRILLS? ARE YOU BLIND?

However... i find that if you ignore the kidneys, the car looks very sharp. The thing is that the 8 and Z4 concepts also looked sharp and the end results were kind of fat and pedestrian. I am sure the same with happen to this and we'll just end up with another fat, bland, BMW design, this time with massive kidneys.

Exaxt this

Every concept BMW looks slick and mean and a weapon. Even the fuggly FWD X variants look the part in concept version.

Then they release the production and its all gone, except this time they will bring over the grill.

One of the symptoms of Covid-19 is loss of taste. They should quarantine the entire BMW design team right away.

I'm happy they were proud of their designs. I hope they will be happy with their share price when these cars are out for sale.
