Nice work, but those wheels look pretty bad. 20"x8" makes them look like wagon wheels.

I actually love them... I recon this car will look amazing on the road with all the performance parts, and it will have much more presence than the regular 3. (Same as A4 vs A5 SB)

I've been waiting for the 4GC but this is as much to my taste. I find it more appealing than the F30.

Could you photoshop these wheels on the car? They seems to be my choice and stay in the same caracter.

While I do think the GT version is much more distinctive than the sedan or wagon, for some reason I'll always prefer a sedan to either.

It seems like BMW is going crazy making too many variants of essentially the same class of car. So am I missing something here or will we have a 3 sedan, wagon, GT, not to mention the X1 and X3 that are all a pretty similar footprint...

It looks 90% the same as the 5GT.
That is not a compliment.

The calipers add a bit of joie de vivre. The wheels are out of character for the car, IMO.

TY for presenting it though. Seeing what one doesn't think works is just as valuable as seeing what does.

My reaction exactly. Both look like an unintegrated afterthought to fill some perceived void in the market.

Wagon Wheels !! Exactly my thoughts... it looks like those mods coming from south the border ....

I know you tried to help BMW on this one, but the thing is ugly to start out with, so it's not your fault...

The car is not so bad looking to say the least... if we want to stay positive
