I know they are making room for the 2-series, but still. I call this car a beautiful porker, aka Miss Piggy.
I'm looking forward to seeing the specs (dimensions, weight) too, and to seeing the production version in person. I wonder if the concept just looks much bigger in photographs and with all the add-ons (massive bumpers, etc.). I was just noticing that in the spy shot above of the guy loading the coupe it actually looks fairly compact.
That's one thing I always liked about the 3-series coupes, how compact they were. I know what you mean about making room for the 2-series, but I also would hate to see the 3/4 series just getting bigger and heavier.
I actually think the design of the sedan, f30, is better integrated as a whole.
I'd really like to see an e46/f32 side-by-side comparo in pictures.
