I am a big fan of BMW, and have been religiously following development (along with swamp, jussi, etc.) and my gut reaction to the new M3 was...'shoot, they f^&ked it up.' Early on, there were some absolutely gorgeous depictions of the car, but over the past few months, it become apparent that they were moving away from the mark (e.g. mirrors). Will likely grow on me though, and I am sure it's an absolute beast of a car. Just don't like the looks much at all.
