Wow. I thought the rear end looked too long on the new coupe, and it seems BMW managed to make it look even longer with the vert version.
The nice and tight proportions of a BMW 3 series have really gone awry with the coupe and vert.
The sedan works, but these others I'm not so sure.
I really hope the final product doesn't look as bad as these camo's.

The proportions of the E46 were spot on, in sedan, coupe, and vert.
The E90 stepped a bit over the line, and this new one is way over.
The front overhang on the new 3 looks like it's a FWD. Audi's A4 managed to reduce the front overhang even with AWD. Now BMW extends the front overhang and ruins the excellent sporty proportions they achieved with the E46.

There really is NO good reason for why these cars need to be bigger, none.
If you need a sedan larger than a 3, then there is the 5.
Imagine how sweet the new 3 would have been if it didn't grow at all, and BMW did all the weight reduction that it did?
The 3 would have gone in the right direction with a BIG weight loss and retained it's nicer proportions.

If I don't go with the new 3 sedan, I'm going to wait for the new 2 coupe cause I'm just not digging the boat like look of the 4 coupe and vert.
I just hope the new 2 doesn't grow too much beyond the current 1, while still getting the current BMW weight loss program.
