Thanks for the pics. Interesting that in these photos the tail looks almost 5GT tall, which I can't say I'm a fan of.

Also when i saw the car in my rear view, i think the biggest difference was that the angle eyes were not on, i mean i can't really say becuase the 2011 model the white angel eyes are like your daytime running light. In this i think either he had the lights running and had the day time running off but i couldn't really make out the angle eyes like you can in every other model. Something that i m not too sure about if they got rid of the daytime running angel eyes concept.

Thanks.

That is really a shame, the car looks good but rear is 99% 5 Series F10, yet parts are different.

No different than a 2007 E90. I'm sure the M-Sport will help, but it is a 3er, which are meant to be pretty inoffensive.

The DRL thing isn't a big deal, the ones on the Facebook premiere had them on. I have them off on my 1er, I just prefer all lights off during the day as I'm not Canadian and the sun's up.

Now, I'm not saying it is ugly or anything. . . it's just too similar to the 5 series. The e9x was, at the very least, more distinct from the 5er.

The rear/side actually look very good to me. Yeah it's F10 like, but that's not a bad thing.

I spied one too!

Uninspiring tail lights and dash as well. This one had upgraded headlights, must be from the F32.

Like the last E90, this one is pretty conservative.

I think this will looks sharp in LCI form but right now it's not too hot. Some of the msport pics were nice though.

FYI, 2011+ cars with iDrive can turn off the angel eyes from running in the day. My 335is has this ability with iDrive.

This happens every time people see a new BMW for the 1st time (F10, F20, X6, etc). Nothing but a bunch of haterade and then after a few months and a few live spottings they change from the haterade to the koolaid like true fan boys. Don't worry gents. you'll love this car in no time. It's really nice and will be insane modded. Cant wait to see the next M

The rear is a boring failure. The e90 facelift taillights look more aggressive with the sharp angles.

Like the E90, it is a little on the boring side but that's not to say it doesn't look nice. I just think the LCI F30 is going to be a better looker but I'd still take Luxury Line F30!

I see many differing opinions on here....I personally and hugely disappointed at the look of this car. I was considering the new M3 sedan in 2013 but I may have to re-think all of that. Technically i'm sure the car is fabulous....but cosmetically it just doesn't do it for me, which I find really sad....May have to pick up the E90 M3 just before it dies

Good luck BMW, I think you just increased Audi and Mercedes sales considerably over the next 6 years.....
