For the US 328i turbo 4 I'd guess the MSRP would hover near 34k USD. Maybe 32k if they're kind to us.

335i with it's turbo six will be around 39-42k MSRP.

Again, that's speculation. But that's what I'm prepared to accept.

Looks good but those renders look kinda soft. Doesn't seem aggressive enough maybe M-Sport back with different bumpers will change that.

Someone on these forums mentioned a 340i, or maybe 350i. I don't know what engine other than the N55 would go into them... Because putting a V8 in a 3er would completely undermine the 550i and the whole point of the 650i is to have the V8 coupe.

Perhaps the 340i would be a super six banger like the 1Ms highly modefied engine? I dunno, 'cause I'm sure I'll be perfectly satisfied with my new F32 335i.

Now as far as the sDrive whatever series goes, who knows when they'll start tagging that on the 3er and 5er like the Z4.

I love the oversized insanity headlights on the new 1 as well.

I couldn't live with that front bumper Hopefully the the m-sport bumper will do justice to the F30/32. This one reminds me too much to the e92 LCI and this Kia

...personally i'm not a big fan of "merging" grille and headlights, the division of the two with "body" has always created a solid strong appearance to me...

one notable execution of this philosophy was the recent VW adaptation of the philosophy... kind of reduces the strength of a facade

Fingers crossed the adaptation in the F32 (3 or 4) coupe will be pleasing

Looks decent if this strongly resembles the real thing. Doesn't strike me as a definitive upgrade over e9x in terms of aesthetics or design evolution. Makes me appreciate my e92 more.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Just be glad it doesn't have the big cross-eyed look of the F20 1-series headlights!

This car looks like it should be quite sharp rather than the awkward 1-series.

...I think it will be unalterable as a part of the headlight unit... the "silver" three elements in bumper and air intake will be easy enough to paint... this is tricky

are we sure those silver elements in the bumper dont angle down toward the middle instead of up??? i think the renders need a tweak.
