So...let's summarize reactions so far:

E92 guys don't like it and think theirs is better looking and won't look outdated the SECOND these start popping up on the road. Plus BMW is overusing the M logo on M-Sport packages, which all of them immediately removed from their E92 M-Sports because it would whore out the Brand.

F30 guys think their sedans are better looking than the Coupe. Say it with me...Their SEDANS are better looking than the Coupe.

And it is now official. After 7,168 repeated references, that Pepboys side vent joke NEVER gets old.

I think one word pretty much sums up my feeling: "Meh"

I'm so glad I ordered one of the last e92 M3's built back in April. I was a little apprehensive that the e92 wouldn't look tired compared to this, but nope.

I agree, the nose diving down is killing me, it looks terrible.

Also I have no clue why the front hood line cuts straight across the front of the car like that rather than running seamlessly with the edge of the hood (like the e92), looks horrendous and is blaring on light colored cars.

I hope the M2 looks good... and the M4 even better.

Something is seriously "off" with this car.

That ///M badge randomly placed above the side vent on the front fender looks like an after-thought.

At least, on the E92 M3, the side vent connected to the character line that runs across the side of the vehicle from the front to the rear.

Now, this vent doesn't connect to any flowing lines within the design. It's just floating on the front fender. Kind of odd.

And the tail lights are no surprise considering the F30 got the same treatment. They always start off the new cycle with non-LED tail lights and then implement them in the LCI. Leaves room for excitement in the later versions as well as extends the life of the design.

And that black piece on the front bumper that curves down toward the center of the front bumper looks a bit awkward too. Its the piece on the red car near the fog lights.

I'm hoping the M4 and LCI are more exciting than these because they just aren't really doing it for me. In person, it will definitely do this car more justice because pictures tend to downgrade the drama/presence of a car's design.

Not feeling the side vents. I don't even want to start on the ///M badge on the fender.

The brakes look like a great upgrade.

I have an e92 and like it.. Will be replacing the shop car (e92) with this next year probably.

I believe we can blame pedestrians for that hood line. The diving nose does look a little off indeed. But you get used to it on a well equiped car though. F30 msport with nice rims is still a looker. Will need to see this one irl though ... i really dislike that front bumper with the 2 teardrops at the side going upwards :s looks off

not a fan at all, weak looking rear bumper diffuser again, compared to the E90 and E92, and the front end from all angles is gross to me. Seems way too high and the snout protrudes to much. I much prefer chins to protrude on these cars.

There definitely are some nice elements, but It just isn't doing it for me.

The bimmerang is hideous, HATE the iPad thing sticking out from the dash, the nose seems to dive an excessive amount, and the overall styling is just boring.

Not even the M-sport looks desirable to my eyes.

IMO BMW has become as boring and predictable as Toyota.

So sad to see what my former favorite brand has become...

Or, get the same results with a MPPK and M-exhaust.

I totally agree with what you said, brand dilution to the extreme here. My m-sport equipped F30 seems to have more ///M badges than my M3!

That's a tough question to answer man, I don't want to volunteer an answer

Nice.
I like the extension of Coral Red onto the lower dash.
And I like the roofline of the 4 more than the 3's.
But why is the base 428i $3,650 more than the base 328i? <confused> Am I looking at the wrong numbers, or does it have some standard equipment that's optional on the 3?
