That commercial was very cringey, especially with the guys face as he was drifting, and felt ironic too considering BMW's EPS is pretty bad.

Can't blame them for trying to incorporate the nostalgia from bmw of old into the new and dramatically different direction they've been going lately.

Car looks okay w EU plates but still waiting to see one in person

They could have gotten a bit more creative, like an ending where the driver presses a button for the car to parallel park itself, to the dismay of the instructor who just realized his job has been made obsolete by technology.

But the marketing firm that was paid to produce this probably knows very little about what the car can actually do.

Ready yourself for the influx of haters in this thread who after several months of ceaselessly berating pictures of the car are now going to say "it looks okay I guess...".

Crazy idea: take all the money they've spent on "marketing" for this car and hire a proper designer to create the LCI!

It's actually gotten pretty good the M lite cars. My favorite feature of my M340 other than having a real diff out back is how playful you can get with the rear despite being AWD.

It's not Porsche good but it's pretty good and worth calling out at this point.

Ah yes the ultimate driving machine, where it's so removed from actually driving, feeling and shifting even a untrained person can do it.
Reminds me of the Geico commercial. Even a caveman can do it.

It used to be that a good car is a companion of a good driver.
We now live in a time where people no longer consider driving a skill that should be honed and mastered.

We already know it's ugly, now BMW is promoting this. I can't even...

Gonna respectfully disagree on that sorry. Even Mazda can tune a steering rack better. The M340 is a great car all else, but the steering in any modern BMW, even the M2 - which is my favorite BMW and has the best steering of the lineup - is mediocre at best. Great cars, but steering is still one of BMW's biggest weakness.

Lol someone could totally edit this video and make it a satire for “car design school” versus driving school

That kid is basically how I look at the guys they designed this

The last thing BMW should be bragging about is its steering.

It's not a a good sign when "it looks okay I guess" is a compliment.

Subliminal message/throwing shade at 0:47? G22 running circles around the 2020 Supra?

I'm not sure what's the theme of the this commercial exactly; kid probably flunks his driving test but his parents bought him a new BMW anyways. Who happens to be a stereotypical, trust-fund, douchebag BMW owner.. 🤷🏻

Anyways, the cartoonish front grilles are already beginning to sink in and I'm now at the acceptance stage, so from here on out, I'm just going focus on the performance numbers and added features, as BMW intended.. 😎

I think everyone will love it when we see it.

Bmw always trying to be unique or different with the 4 and 6 series. The 8 series now instead of the 6.

What's making me upset is the rear tail light looks like Acura? Hope this is not true in reality.
