From the video, it is hard to guess the exact size and weight, but the proportions of the cars are very nice. IMO, it looks at least as good as the existing 3-series.

I like the dipping front hood and the short rear overhang. I think I'm going to like the next M3 very much.

Is it just me or did I see a mention of selectable RWD/AWD modes??? That's a good idea... I had that in my Pathfinder and it was great to drive in RWD all summer and AWD in snow.

It seems it too will sit higher for easy access just like the F10 which BMW says site HIGHER for easy entry/exit.

i'm really digging its proportions and the way it looks going down the road.
I just hope its not much bigger... Heck if they kept it the same size it'd be perfect.

Don't worry, that is just some sort of reflective tape or plastic that will NOT be on the production version of the car.
