E90 LCi with Performance pack looks 10 X better than base F30 IMHO

Hope the F32 front looks exactly like the i8 and I see no reason why it shouldn't.

Other than the i8 would never meet the pedestrian impact standards and those headlights would not work on a production vehicle.

The Vision Efficient Dynamics was a pure concept car whereas the BMW i8 showcases the work to make the Vision Efficient Dynamics Concept car more production viable. The i8 showcases the front end of the production car because it has been engineered and tested in regards to crash regulations.

Nice to see stock cars.

I think in stock form, the front and rear still look great. But I can't help but feel that E90 in profile shot looks better with its shorter front overhang and stubby rear kicked up a bit on trunk. just me.

Looks good to me - better than the E90

E90 was a great car and I think this one will surpass it in every way. E60 was ugly, the E90 wasn't. F10 and F30 have BMW going back in a better design direction.

Unhappy

Wow for the last 8 months I didn't notice that gawd awful hoodline fracture until reading this thread!!!

Now it is the only thing I see when I look at the F30. Sort of like someone telling you your girlfriend is ugly but you don't see it until they show you 'how' she is ugly!




Now someone please tell me why is the F30 hood fracture a "pedestrian safety" feature?

Does the hood pop off and eject out some air bags when it senses a pedestrian is about to get hit by your car!?
