not exciting

this car looks "good" but no excitement and definitely no wow factor that will incline me to spend 60K

cant stand the autozone side air vent, just looks ackward

cheaper

any one else not only does the odo and rpm gauge look simpler, it looks cheaper too

bmw has really nickled and dimed the coupe this time, sad to say that it is obvious that they have cut corners....

wow those no sport seats look thinner and cheaper too

Really don't like it.

Would have to see a modded one with a different front bumper and at least sports suspension for that to change.

Gorgeous car, ugly stock / low-end wheelset. A tighter edit on the Photos next time would be awesome. :-)

I believe that's for the automatic engine shutdown at traffic lights. The odometer would still display "ready" while the engine is shut down, because it's not really "off" since it will fire up when you release the brakes.


I really like the back end of the car, the front is ok but not great, I think it needs the M-sport package.

Also, those seats look really dated! Come on, Mercedes and Audi have much better looking seats than that, since their previous generation of cars.

Only in the rear tail lights the fronts have LED's. I guess we will have to wait for the LCI. Personally I like that they went with LED's up front for autobahn blinking when coming up fast at night.


And besides guys... this is a prototype not a final production car. Things might be different on the production car. We just have to wait and see.

I know... its ridiculous...pretty much every other car this competes against has LED taillights, even the E92 LCI and E46 LCI coupe had LEDs. Why BMW goes backwards and uses incandescent bulbs on pre-LCI models just for the sake of providing another change for LCI is really frustrating.

Totally right on the off ready on the cluster, it's to let you know if you are on traffic light engine still on & ready, I have to disagree with you on the front though, it is really aggressive & beautiful, however the car all in all is just ok, interior looks pretty tacky.
