I like the front, but the rear looks really out of place. Maybe because it's a sedan? Can't put my finger on it.

being a fellow e90 owner i take your opinion very seriously. I think the problem is that the rear is so far out and the front is the same... a front widebody at about 50% the width of the rear should correct the oddness of this. dont worry, i am working on it

The rear fender line should have started much higher and the widening angle more subtle out to look balanced with the front, IMO. As it is now, it looks like a straight cylinder sticking out of the rear fenders.

Look at the 335ix rear fenders in those same photos and you will know what I am talking about...

Yea, def gotta start the flare a little higher on the body so it isn't as obtrusive and noticeable, IMHO.

The wheels on the other hand looks superb.

The rear is a little off, but still, I love it! Amazed by the creativity.

and honestly, mostly all wide body cars are a bit off.

except the AMG-Black Series lol
