Looks good. Not much of a change IMO can't wait to see new M lineup though.

I dont care for the front of the car at all! The interior and the rear look pretty good though. I agree with the previous poster, not much of a change IMO. I am actually kinda disappointed with this car so for. Lets see the coupe!

Back is better than the front. I want to see what the m sport and m front fascias look like before deciding how I feel about the front.

Those seats look odd to me though, do not want

Looks almost like they cut the front off of an older Z4 and welded it to a 3 series body.

The interior seems to be strongly influenced by the E46 generation and that's always a good thing!

Looks good. Exterior is tastefully updated without going overboard and f-ing it all up, as in Bangle days. Not a fan of the dash trim, but otherwise the interior is good.

I like the interior - hard to get excited about the exterior though....the front end looks squashed.....like an elephant sat on it.

The renderings of this car by other people are amazingly close to this. Whoever did the renders got some skill.

I'm not sure I'm liking the lines on the hood. I much prefer this generation's e90 where the hood extends to the edge of the kidney grill.

I really do not like how the headlights are integrated into the kidney grills.

I noticed they corrected the window controls on the door. Moved it in front of the door handle.

Hopefully the M3 looks totally different though as I'm not a fan of the new style.

I'm loving it. I can imagine the M with a bulge on the hood now. Love the interior. The black seats with the red stitching is something I wish they would have offered on this gen. More of a performance look vs. the current luxury look we have now.

Not bad at all. Just enough change to freshen things up but not ruin orginal look, well, except front end. From the side, it just looks like it doesnt belong, like "melted" or something. I'm sure the new car will have a host of improvements, better gas mileage and more gizmos. However, I'll keep my E90 M3 for a while as it is unique in many ways.
