do you guys think its longer? like the new a4? it looks the same size to me... front is definitely diff.. i think this generation it would be like how close the e46 and the e39 were to each other.., but i dont want that... i loved this current generation how they all had different personalities from looks.

That's because you can't actually see the real headlights underneath. The current lights (both front and rear) are just part of the disguise.

+1. I agree, they should keep each series somewhat unique. Definitely don't want to see small/medium/large versions of essentially the same car.

A couple of points: #1 Bigger square mirrors for the most part are here to stay because of EU regulations. #2 More upright front end to meet EU pedestrian impact rules. #3
#3 Around 2005 I read that the E90 frame was designed to carry over to the next generation 3-series, however that could easily have changed.

Remember this design will be evolutionary not revolutionary.

Damn, they transferred over the new "my face is pushed in" look that they have put on the entire "F" lineup. Damn, that is the one thing I don't like about the new 7, so fugly.....

It's camouflage, of course they don't. BMW uses this design on all their mules.

Interesting pictures though, the proportions look very nice. Can't wait to see more!

1) What's with the junker-trailer? lol

2) Either those wheels are small, or those brakes are HUGE!

3) Love the temporary headlights, the temporary taillights and fake markers on the mirrors, hopefully they'll all make it to production this time. I've been waiting for years!

Yeah, number 3 was a joke, I didn't read every reply, just skimmed, but I would bet there has already been some and will be some more that make comments on said items...

This car can have a lot of potential if it is executed right; if they design a nice front bumper and give it sport accents, there is no reason this car should'nt look pretty. Please give it muscular accents and wheel arches like in the e46!!!!!!!!!

You can't really tell much from the heavy camouflage, but all I'm hoping is...please don't be ugly, please don't be ugly, please don't be ugly!
