Not really feeling the new looks. Maybe when it's official, I might feel differently.

But right now, .

Thanks for the pics.

I thought it was supposed to get E92-like headlights, like the E90 M3 has?

The car is a little different but everyone is saying how ugly it is. Its not that much different to change someones opinion that much. Its pointless to coment on a car that has ANY camo on it. I will reserve judgement until I see the real deal.

+1

How much you wanna bet if you posted a current pic of a 2007 Black 335i sedan that hadn't been washed in 2 months and then take the pictures in dull weather and called THAT the facelifted model everyone would be saying how ugly it is, or how it looks like a this or that..

Fact is there's too much camo still on it to tell. My bet is that once the camo comes off, the car will look more agressive and have more detail to it than the current model. The 3-series is BMW's bread and butter model. They won't and can't afford to screw it up.......

Yeah, even the slightest bit of camo (the rear lights, or especially the front grill) can completely throw off the look and flow of the car. If your eyes try to follow a line in the car and part of the line is hidden by tape, then you will naturally have a negative reaction to the entire feel of the car.

Once it's actually revealed I think it will look much better than the current version.

I'm sure the facelift will get E92/E93 front and whiteline/blackline as standard, like new E90 M3..

i know it's early, but it seems to be a fairly minor face lift.

wondering what they're doing with the tails.

Doesn't really look like that from these pics, atleast regarding the front.
