Will you buy a new/used G Series?

I'm not really liking the new G-series design. Not all got horrendous new grill but to me the F-series with M-sport just looks sportier. The only G-series I'd consider buying used in a few years would be the M340i. Maybe the new look will grow on me. I'm not currently in the market for a car and probably wont be for several years. Just wondering what the consensus on the forum is. Who knows maybe I'd switch to EV.

I keep looking at the M340i but I think I'm going to break down and gets get the Z4 M40i. The grill isn't too outrageous and I need another drop top.
My X2 can do family duty.

No plans to, the GXX doesn't make a compelling case for me to get rid of my F30. The i4 interests me, but that's about it as far as BMWs current lineup is concerned. I've bled blue and white since the mid-90s but the direction BMW is going in currently is very confusing and not exciting to me at all.

I really like the G20, but it feels too mature for me. The F30 fits my age profile better

I would definitely buy a pre-LCI G20 M340i when the time comes. Won’t buy an LCI G20, because they’re ruining the dashboard.

Agree with everything said. I am just not feeling the new trend BMW is going with.

The M340i is the exception.

I would love to get a 2018 M3 but the prices are insane.

Maybe next year....

Sadly, I have not seen a G-series styling that I like yet. Passed a G42 today and I thought it was a japanese car from the rear until I saw the BMW roundel. It is a pity since what is under the hood for the G is an upgrade but I can't muster the will to want to downgrade on looks.

No wagon in US.. Will have to look at Mercedes next time bc Audis feel fwd biased in driving dynamics, unlike BMW.

As a current owner of F36, the only G20 I would consider would be M340. Then again, my F36 is a terrific vehicle. Carefully observing i4 M50 news. Will consider it only after the second year.

This is what happened to Acura/Honda with me after 2010. They have since gotten better but I wanted rwd. Infiniti may get a 2nd look in the future.
