Don't fret just yet...
  1. Nothing is finalized but I expect it to be close.
  2. The new Bimmers always look better in person than they do in photographs.
  3. There will be many performance improvements that will have all of us drooling.
  4. You will learn to love it and you will want to buy one.

Many of us e46 folks are still "skeptical" about the e90. That's why we can't wait for the next 3 series to arrive. If it looks as good as this rendering, I'll buy it. I'm passing on the e90. Very poor execution on BMW's part with this one -- the sedan I mean. Even they admit it.

Looks pretty decent but I don't like the fact, if it does come out like that, that it looks very similar to the other car line ups...

I hope you're not serious with that comment. I can almost be a 100% sure that BMW has sold More e9X's than e46s.

Sadly like the 1er , still far off from the chosen design. Although the 5er and 7er will share the same bloodline .
The 3er is a bit more adventurous there will be classic BMW design elements but under Adrian Van Hooydunk and his team there has been greater scope for progress especially in areas such as front and rear shapes for the lighting units , which the 3er will offer a more design orientated approach to the classic L-design shape.

BMW's from now one will be more broader and muscular bulges will be formed in key areas such as the front and rear wheel arches without over exaggerated design elements that do not belong on every model .

The 3er is the segments best drivers car and now the brief is to give a more sporting orientated design , to go with it's driving characteristics.

The 3er GT is about 180 degrees from the 5er GT , although they will share the same bloodline , The 3er GT is a hybrid of a Touring and a Sporting shooting brake design. To understand the design of the 3er GT you have to go back to the original RFK Concept ,
With this design many within BMW loved the original intention unfortunately BMW had to re-interpret it's conception to a vehicle that would become today's 5er Gran Turismo.

The RFK concept has been brought back interms of proportion and outline to fit within the 3er's sporting segment , looking more compact with a shorter roof line , BMW have approved the design for the 3er GT.
Inside similar to the 5er GT , the 3er GT will feature a similar lounge experience with the option of four or five seats and a "shelf" like cockpit design.

I really hope they stop that hideous Z4listic front end.
I'm sure I would ditch BMW and go over to Audi if it comes out like that.

I don't see what all the fuss is about. I like it. It follows the current design theme started by the new 7, yet it's uniquely 3. It's also a nice evolution from the E90. I'm sure the actual production car will be nicely tweeked from this rendering by the time it arrives. And yes all the haters on here will be falling all over themselves to have one.

How quickly we forget. Remember all the E92 haters when the first renderings were released???? Well guess what ... all those haters now have E92s!!!!

Perhaps I'm starting to show my age or it's simply that my taste has become more sophisticated, but bmw is looking more and more "common-looking" in their design philosophy/direction. I do wish the brand success and I'm sure they will, but at this rate they're losing me faster than you can say Hofmeister kink.

One would hope so for the sake of company growth. More and more people are aspiring to own and drive BMWs there's nothing wrong with that, but like any other brand volume if not properly controled will inevitably dilute the brand.
