I agree with this, the styling is way too exaggerated. I would prefer more subtle lines for a non-M model.

This rendition would be suitable for an M4, even I still believe it is a bit over exaggerated.

New styling looks disproportionate and cartoonish; a squinting pig with a big grin. Not very elegant at all.

Folks need to keep in mind that this is a concept, so of course it will have some exaggerated styling.

Definitely! This is the way to go! I have always been a big BMW fan, on my 6th BMW now... Can't wait to see the 4 GC, the 6 coupe and 6 GC are at the top of my list at the moment, but it's hard to pick just one!

Very nice car indeed! Front is nice, interior is nice.

Tail Lights look cool, the boot line but below, the rear bumper with the exhaust, horrible in my opinion. Whether the exhaust is metal or not, it just looks crap, and usually (i hope i'm wrong) you can see small pipes behind the squared off opening. Leave that for the TOYOTAs please!

Interior you can see the climate control and radio buttons have a chrome border that looks like the rear bumper (square kind of). Don't like that either. I guess if sitting inside you can always be reminded how horrible the rear looks

Just my 2c. All in all, the lines are beautiful on the front and side profiles!

Wouldn't trade e92 just yet. (fix rear bumper please)

Absolutely. Yours looks great, as do a lot of other modded E92s. I was speaking more about the stock look.

We've already gotten a look at the production bumper - in the spy pics of the production F32 4 Series.

It won't be like the concept's lower rear bumper at all.

can't wait on how the M4 will look, this already is amazing (well, yeah, the rear bumper needs to tone down a bit) so I guess the M4 will really be menacing......

Even ignoring the lower fascia front and back, The exterior lines are a significant improvement over the E92. Looks much more aggressive, much more interesting, and just significantly better overall.

Fantastic design!

Both front and rear look busy but there is a cohesiveness about the whole car. Looks aggressive and stylish and make the E92 look so out dated just like what E92 did to the E46 coupe.

The Fxx looks very modern ... simple.

I can't wait to see the ACTUAL comparison between the production F32 4 series against the E92 3 series.

Honestly, I feel like the parts of the car that I think are really cool and futuristic will not show up in the actual production of the car.

Please and thank you!
Agree, pre LCi should be the model that's compared, LCI's front looks weird, they killed it with those weird LCI headlight shape.

Somehow, at this moment, I still like the e92 pre LCI a little more, but I think when bmw releases the F32 M-sport, I'll change my mind!
