WOAH! That steering wheel is straight out of my first BMW.. a 92 325is. And that thing was bad ass! Nice!

I'm actually really liking the msport trim now. I am positive that an LCI'ed rear end will clean things up.

Lighter

More aggressive

Vintage to some extent (while staying modern) (I.e, steering wheel)

More efficient

More "showy"



What the hell is there to bitch about people? This car is beautiful....

Looks great but the wheelgap is awful. The car is going to needs some serious rollers and springs to fill those.

I think the m sport fixes most of the gripes I have about the modern, sport, and luxury lines.

I'm liking the look. inside and out.

The hood is square. Not in love with that, but I can live with it.

Did they say n55 for sure? If so, the car is 0.3 - 0.5 slower than the e90. The air intake/airbox is much different than the current N55... so maybe it's a subtle change or a new engine.


Regardless, I'm not impressed with the new M-Sport package. I don't think it looks as aggressive as the e90, and the new rear end is a bit sad... it's just a bit boring.

I think the 550 MSport looks so much more aggressive

Also, looks like they took out the LED rear lights. bummer.

I loooovee the new steering wheel, so sick and tired of the same BMW one with big fat ugly black pillow case in the middle. This car is stunning, excellent job BMW. Honestly I know this sounds crazy I would drop this and keep my Targa instead of possibly stepping up to an M5 and have to give up Targa.

I adjusted the lighting on this pic using photoshop, I think this new steering wheel looks really sporty. It's gonna feel really nice in your hands, I especially like how they kept all the controls so tighty on each side. There's really no reason to have such a huge airbag on a sporty car like the 3 series. I also think this steering wheel will look great on the new coupe too.
The DCT shifter is awesome, I sooo wish I had that on my 2011 335i

I agree, maybe S4 is a little flashier but I don't quite see the difference everyone else talks about. S4 seats are cool though.

Yes, I keep seeing people mention the DCT.

These cars are either getting the new 8-speed automatic or manual gearbox.

It looks alot like the double clutch transmission shifter in the 135i coupe. I thought it was DCT in this pic above.

BMW's new auto and DCT shifters look very very similar. The 3 series is getting an 8 speed auto.

you summed it up nicely.

Front end is decent but i dont like the head lights merging into the grill. It kinda ruins the front end for me.

I see that they are trying to modernize the interior... I however liked the simplistic look of BMW, bimmer were staying close to the roots. I'm not too sure about how trim kinda falls off on the passenger side.

oh well... hopefully they will do a better job with the coupe. Personally i think they kinda messed up with this one.
