i cant wait to see some top of the line tuners put their hand on it *mw*. this car has so much potential to be suped up.

I don't like how they split the kidney grill so that the top crome piece is on the hood. I'm surprized to see that the tails are not LED. Overall it looks okay but it has so many angles and lines that it's too busy in some spots (like the rear). the antena has to go too.

i dont like it at all,
the rear is has way too many curves and angles, im confused lookin at it, front end is ugly, the fin of the back looks retarded, the mid section reminds me of a bubble its not lookin like power car should

just my 2 cents, this is looks btw i have no idea whats under the hood

I like it, but I wanna see what the coupe is going to look like...they always do a nicer job with the coupes.

It will take some getting used to as usual and waiting for coupe to see what it will turn out.

My concern is though the spaces between tailligt and the body panels. May be I am picky, may be it is a shadow trick that camera plays but fit and finish reminds me of domestics.

^^^^ exactly. A picture is worth a thousand words. The 7 was deiappointing but never really my fav to begin with. The 5 hurt a little bit......and other than the 500hp V10 the "bangelization" of the M5 hurt a LOT. But for definling the 3 series and in turn the M3 soon, that's the final straw. Looks like I'll never buy a new BMW. I hate you Chris Bangle

i dont know but every car has to grow/evolve and the fattening up of the 3 started in 99-i guess thats y they r comin out with the 1 and 2 series-the coupe version of the 1(M) is absolutely sik*smoke*

Maybe it will look better in person and it will grow on everyone lets hope but nonetheless it will be an amazing car mechanically speaking

The llong lnes on the front bumper meet fenders + rear bumper meeting the chase makes the car look cheap.

Anybody know what meterial the bumper is made out of (ie plastic or fibergalss like in corvette)?


I noticed the same problem(for me) in the new 5 series as well.

It doesn't give me that solid German built feel.
