I guess you forgot the S. Let me rephrase this one :

"i have a feeling this car will be a ridiculously big shit"

I thought this was Front-Wheel-Drive though, not Rear Wheel Drive.

Any idea of when the Front Wheel Drive version is coming out.

By carefully comparing the existing model and the new one, my guess for the reason for the drooping nose is to reduce fuel consumption by decreasing Cx. Fuel efficiency is at the core of their research ...

The front end is not everything : even fixing those headlights won't give the massive feeling of the front part that today's ones have. But this massive look is not fuel efficient.

This must be some kind of sick joke.

I always admired Bangles work.

Are the people that wanted him out happy now?

I have owned e36, e46 and e90 for the past 15 years and I am planning to buy f30 next year. If the f30 looks like this ugly clown I will not buy it.

I think they are drugged when designing this car, or what ever it is...

The blue one in sport version, bigger wheels and double exhaust looking much better, don't you think? Takes some time to get used to the headlights but starting to like it.

If they had actually followed the original concept it might have been ok.

Absolutely. They are probably trying to differentiate it from the f30 though, as your render would look a little similar, I imagine. Shame about the headlights though.

The main problem w/ the headlights--way out of proportion for the car. I would guess they are roughly the same height and width as the current 7 series. Have you ever seen an Integra with 5 or 7 series headlights grafted on? Looks like shit. I venture to guess that the reason they chose this design was to appeal to females, and metros. The large "eyes" emasculates the design. Kinda softens the face a little. They tried to add a little aggressiveness back with the hard brow line, but ultimately failed because the large rounded lower area is too much to overcome. We can only hope for a big change in the LCI.
