As I said before, I like the new headlight style, but for the shape, I prefer the current E92 one.

And I feel like the increase in length spoil the sporty, dynamic feeling.
I think the 2 series is a more match to the current coupe in style.

Yes they surprised us with the gorgeous concept and gave us a subdued look and a plain front not as aggressive as the concept front only minor different from the F30 and those large headlights not good compared to the ones on the concept which looks a lot meaner, and the interior same as F30.
Won't be changing over from my E92 anytime soon very disappointed in BMW going very soft not happy

It's not all bad, the fact it's longer and wider does mean it looks meaner in profile and 3/4 on.
I don't like the fact they copied the lights from the sedan. It's kind of funny, they call it a 4 series, but it looks more like a 3 series sedan than the e93 looks like the original e90.

Also it's interesting that they may have dropped the 7 speed DCT for the 8 speed auto. It seems like my n54 DCT has become a classic all the more reason to keep it now...
Anyway that 8 speed box is great, we have it int the x5 and it selects faster than the DCT and changes way quicker than the old e90 6 speed.

Yeah, hope it looks better than the 1 series. How could they take an already ugly car and make it even uglier? Well it makes the old 1 series look like Angelina Jolie.

+1 on the A45
It's also got 7 speed DCT

Very disappointed on the new look of the 4. Something is not right, the head lights deff no go for me, looks too alike to the F30. especially that two ugly bars behide the front grille. What they were thinking.

The side view is nice, back end ehh, and front end, terrible. The interior looks all out of sorts to me. It looks like they just threw all the interior bits randomly and kept them wherever they landed. There is no symmetry or smooth lines in the interior. I am not a fan of the new 4 series.

Doesn't matter though, my next car will be a used 2006-2008 corvette zo6

4 Series concept is so fkn hot



The Lci is a really weird car, because the car looks and feel out of proportion on the photos. I had the same feeling with F30 but i remember telling myself when i saw one live.....not bad, looks pretty clear and modern.

So maybe things might change after you seen one life but i personal don't believe bmw is heading to the right direction in terms of exterior design.....M135i.....is fugly

Having placed an order for an E92 (Fully Loaded M Sport High Line) built in May 2013, for low 90K price, I am not disappointed after seeing this.
I have always disliked the F30 front end...this does nothing to change that opinion.
The other thing that does not seem to gel is the slop of the rear end it reminds me of the Audi fastback which is hideous...it seems to straight from the top to the tail.
Anyway happy I pulled the trigger on the offer got form BMW dealer.

I think BMW will sell a shit load of M235's. After seeing those so called leaked images it looks like it will be a winner. If i were to look for a new car for early next year it would be between the M235 or CLA 45.

The AMG A45 is a bullet, and classy to suit. Genuine horn material.

And the CLA45, is sexy as f**k as well.

CLA is pure jizztastic, on another note Pavo's new IS 250 F-Sport is a soothing change for his ball sack. The change reminds me of the day i had a soft spot for the second gen Chrysler 300 SRT8 (i still think its fully sick uleh).

I don't like it. Headlights and tails look identical to the F30...which I'm not a fan of it either.

Though surely enough with some aftermarket parts and some time getting used to the look I'll probably love it in the end.
