Is it just me or is the back of the car weird looking compared to the 5-door version?

I mean the part after the door. Then again it might just be those wheelbarrow sized wheels...

The main difference (apart from the number of doors) is that the side sill on the F21 M sport is similar to the standard F20 sill ( the shadow line curves up not down)so the rear panel looks higher when viewed from that angle

Also, you have to consider
The front door is longer than the F20 so only one vertical line is shown in the rear half side view. There is not rear door line shadow showing vertically in that area

There is no rear quarter window (as on F20 rear door), that may make the body look fat there.

It is a strange visual trick with hatchbacks (Sporthatch) 5 doors can look lower than a 3 doors

I think the mineral grey look better than the white.
The white would look better with M Performance decals, the rear spoiler kit and the 19" Double spoke wheels
It may be a case of F21's looking better in darker colours
I would like to see a Black F21 M Sport. If any has, please post the pics.
