Images aren't China only models but probably missing M-Sport.

The updated rear is odd.

The tail lights are basically the same, but now there's a huge cut out where the M quad exhausts would go

What's with the 3 different lower front mesh setups ? 1 with no radar housing , 1 with a round edged rectangular radar , and 1 with a trapezoid radar housing ?

It's a very different look to the recently launched i3 front bumper , whcih had plenty of paint beneath the kidney grilles , whereas these leaks show a thin layer of paint , above a big ugly piece of black plastic nothingness

The rear diffuser looks out of place. IMO

I used to look forward to the LCI refreshed models...

Snowball effect of slowly, but surely ruining all good BMW design language across the entire model lineup. Smdh.

Fakery in new level, hopefully european Msport will look a lot better, agressive.
Still prefer my pre lci g20.

Looks like they just thought it needed change, for the sake of change. The rear M bumpers have been a bit weird as of late. The i4 M bumper has massive black plastic cutouts as well

On the positive side, it looks like they finally made the non-laser lights with proper DRLs?

Looks like a Chinese knockoff off the 3 Series.

U.G.L.Y. Why does the bumper design need so many sharp angles, compartments, nooks, crevices. Then, we've got dashes in the grill, slats and honeycomb in the bumper. Why not keep it uniform and consistent as with the past? Rear end is meh.

Not a huge fan of the rear, but I think the front is an improvement over the headlight shape of the non-LCI model. Looks a bit more like an E90/F30 now in the front, which is a good thing.

Still not a huge fan of all the sharp angles/creases down low, though. Hated that on the new 2 series, too. At least they didn't give the car the ugly 4 series grill treatment.
