The only thin I like there is the diesel variation, hopefully it would get around 40mpg

If they bring the 320d to the US (likely), it should get 48mpg, according to the press release, based on the EU cycle conversion.

I'm all for choice, so go wild BMW build what you think will bring new $'s.

But please, as others have pointed out what is wrong with the options for choosing leg room and storage space ala carte from your existing menu of not nearly as ugly cars?

F30
Need more storage
F31
Need more leg room
F10 / F30 LWB (China)
Need more leg room and more storage
F11

That's ignoring anything with an X in the name!

Not as bad as I was expecting, but still an insult to one of the greatest looking cars about.

This is way I think:

f30 - sports sedan/compact executive/benchmark, right?
f31 - for people that need more practicality but don't want to compromise the driving experience
x3 (f25) - for people that want ever more practicality, even if it costs them some of the driving experience.

so the f34 would be yet another step between the f31 and the x3. That's the niche of the niche.

This is just my personal opinion, but i'd rather have bmw spend the development costs for the f34 in improving their electric steering system across the entire range instead.

Im tempted, will wait on the price. The back seats are gigantor for a 3 series, would make a great family trip car, but still fun in the curves.

I did not think a minute about this GT before today. The more I see and read about it, the more I like it. I was planning to Get a F31 this fall, but now Im seriously considering this thing

I'm curious to see how this looks in a side-by-side comparison to the F30 and F31. I personally think the 3 series looks best in F31 M-Sport trim. I don't really mind this car as long as BMW continues to give us the F31 too.

I quite like it, given that it is equipped with the M Sport package. Especially like the front.

Those 19 inchers will look nice on the F30/F31.

Oh dear why waste time launching this when more of a market for 4 series. Maybe it's aimed at Chinese market where long wheelbase 3 sells well?

Ok as upmarket taxi for going to the airport!

Not as bad as I thought it whould be, but it's really big since it'e 20cm longer than the F30.

But what's up with the boomerang on the front side fender.

It does look better than the 5 GT, but still not a fan. It just looks wrong.

It's interesting to see that the windows don't have a frame around them (like the coupes).
