Another Yank hater here

But agree with what others have said, this car is clearly not targeted for the US market.

Shouldn't this car be MY2014? 2013s (in the US, at least) have been on sale for several months now. By the time the GT is actually ready for sale, it should coincide with the MY2014 change, let's say in July 2013?

I actually think it looks good in Msport, I want to see it in person, also waiting for interior shots.

Sincerely hope this doesn't replace the 3 series touring in the US, like the 5GT did. Hope you're right

BMW's design language is beginning to look reactionary and "Baroque."

BURN IT WITH FIRE!

If they send those to the US with an N55 I will be SO pissed. They won't send over a proper touring 3er with the N55, but they will this monstrosity?

LETS RIOT!

My God, that is just HORRIBLE. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

It makes the GT 5 series look like a work of art.

I don't think there is a better example of a car designed by committee. Did some little guy in the back of the conference room stand up and say "You know, that cars needs a little v-notch vent behind the front wheel." Then another guy stood up and said "Sure, we'll give you your v notch, but we're taking away the Hofmeister kink!"

The only nice thing is the front. The proportions are bad. The back of this looks like the honda cross-ver thing. This is a terrible idea. I wish they would stop making these micro-segment cars. Nobody needs this.

Also, what is up with that "design element" under the side marker? WTF?!!

I don't think so, the A5 has acceptable proportions but the styling on this is fundamentally wrong. The proportions, esp the front end, is even worse than the F07.

I have to see this in person before I give an opinion, I wasn't a big fan of the 5GT when I saw it pics at first, but I do see them a lot where I live and I actually like it. The interior of the 5GT is gorgeous and BMW did a great job of achieving their goal of giving us a GT (GrandTouring) car with a very luxurious and spacious interior.
As for the side vent, I think they can do away with them. I don't see a purpose for it and it's a bit distracting on the car. I hope there is time to remove it from the 4 series if its too late on the GT cars...

I'm not sure why everyone thinks it is weird or funny that the camera vehicle is a Mercedes. The filming is being done by a production company which owns the Mercedes ML. It is a purpose built camera vehicle that is used to shoot driving scenes for TV shows, movies, and commercials for any auto manufacturer.

I think this will go over well in Europe where the buyer wants to pack the most car into the smallest possible parking spot. I won't bet on it for the US.
