Seriously! At first, I was like, "UGLY!", but now I'm like, "That. Looks. Cool?"

Interior looks like an improvement +1

Exterior...looks like a mini X1 / 5-series...not in a good way...the E82 / E88 had a unique look to it. If you're going Audify the entire line up, at least do it right. Don't meld Bangle's design and add touches to it (that won't work). You need to start from scratch.

I had slept with it. Well - tech figures are really great. Interior is better in many ways, especially comparing with euro 116 etc models (aka chip versions). Exterior maybe not that ugly but really disapointing. I really expected something great but not this.

OMG, who squished my X1? And why does it have the rear of VW Polo? The exterior is so very wrong. Interior on the other side - give it to me now.

I'm clearly in the minority here but I like this. It has a classic look and will age well. Very strong links to the older BMW's ( like the 2002 ). Interior is brilliant. Honestly if the "ricer" brigade hates this car it just makes it more appealing to me. I'll admit that the rear end looks exactly like a Polo - but its not ugly and still looks sporty. This is a future classic - looks like no other car on the road ( apart from rear lights ) .

Well, this debate reminds me of past debates.
Let me take a wild guess, anyone remember the E60?
We came from the classic E39, to the one Bangle created into the E60, people went bananas back then as well.
But what happened, the fresh design of the E60 help up excellent, and meanwhile more conservative designed car's like the A6 recived more applause in the start, by the time it was two years old, it looked ancient, and like any other Audi.
Not so with the E60, who still looks pretty modern, allthough coming as early as 2003

And that was with a much more... seasoned buyer group than the 1'er is.
This is designed for guys/chicks in theyr "teens", and 20-30's i presume.

And like the X1, it has some more creative solutions regarding colour choices and obviosuly design language as well.
Don't get me wrong, i didn't jizz in my pants of these first pics, but after seeing a couple hundred of them, this is my conclusion.
It will be a sucsess, and above all, it will look much better live, and another thing while we're at it- the M package will likely improve it some more!
And be sure, it will find it's buyers, and even more so than the E87 ever did.
Much because of some extra space, the E87 was cramped inside, specially the backseat.
The F20 looks more mature, more premium from inside and outside imo.
Can't wait to see some in Valencia, and better, see this car live.
