I'll wait to see it in person before image any judgements. So far, I like everything except the awkward disconnect between the headlight and what I'm assuming is the drl. I think the designer's intention was for the eye to "fill in the space" but it's just not doing anything for me.

right now this is looking much better than msport 3 series from the outside and inside\\Just look at the gadgets inside the car..look at the crazy tacometer which looks like the same one as in the Lexus LFA. 3 series lacks tech bigtime, even a fully loaded one. I just feel my 2012 335i is old already, from the non LED turn signals, to the boring old speedometer/tachometer etc. Although the N55 engine and ZF8 Tranny is really really the heart and soul of this car which I and many others absolutely love. Just wished the F30 had more futuristic gadgetry to set it apart from other cheaper cars (like the ford focus has way more tech than the 3 series!)

Lexus screwed up bad by not renewing the engine choices.

I may be in the minority...but I actually like it. It speaks to me on a very personal level, similar to when I have bowel movements.

This design is so disappointing and akward...the front looks like bacterial infection and the rear looks like a futuristic TSX. The interior is really nice though... the only thing I would remotely consider in the Lexus line-up is the GS. It's the only thing that is wearing that Predator front end nicely.

I personally like the new design. It's unique and the interior is laid out nicely, I am loving the LFA gauges, knowing the driving reputation Lexus has I am sure it's flawless and offers extreme amounts of comfort. Can't wait to see what the ISF has to offer performance wise..
