The F30 looks good (a lot like the 5er) but minus the interior changes, looks too similar to the E90 LCI.

What will be interesting is the modding community that will grow to support the new Turbo-4 in the F30 and upcoming models.

true, i think we might see more modding with the F30 then the E90 given the engine options alone.

True that. I like a wide rear end, but these are just big and tall.

I like it a lot, although parts of it verge on being over-fussy.

In response to the Chris Bangle comments, he did great things for BMW and got them to a much higher level. His aesthetic was copied by virtually every car manufacturer.

I'm not saying he didn't start a revolution, but it's almost like he designed cars with every wild design cue possible in order to start the revolution; it's as if he was more concerned with being a parts bin for other manufacturers and receiving notoriety than with designing a car people wanted to buy.

Its a base 328i, of course its forgettable, all of them are!

DURH!

"Enthusiasts" always do this, and then when the sport, M-Sport and M3's show up all of a sudden "ITS THE HOTTEST CAR EVER!"

I didn't like my E90 tail lights that is why I went with Blacklines. But this new one is not an improvement at all (shape). It really reminds me of the Infinity G35. The inside is great but the rear is a disappointment. I love BMW but sometimes I really think the Audis (S4) beats our asses when it comes (only on) design.

I am guessing this post is supposed to be sarcastic, because we seriously cannot be complaining that these people's pensions and salaries are what's making this country "broke."

they could have just as easily put a 528i badge with no camo
and it would have fooled 99.9% of the people who saw it

I think that it will have great succes, it has a lot of + over the last generation, even the design is more agressive

What? My 2008 335i without iDrive can turn off the day time running light! Maybe is because it is kinda complicated to turn it off. Seems like most people don't know it. You have to start the engine first, and then push the...... Forget about it... too long

I'm not going to fight about how good or bad looking the car is, I'm going to say how FORGETTABLE it is.
