I'm sorry, but I still think it looks horrendous. A nicely polished black will look good on almost any car. That really doesn't say much. I think it looks HILARIOUS, which is much much worse than ugly.

I hated quite a few recent Bangle era BMW designs, like the last gen 6 and 7 series, but I also knew that they would sell just fine. That's because even though I hated them for the lack of certain classic proportions that I tend to like, I knew that most people don't care about such things, and that they at least looked distinct and serious to be recognized as BMWs.

I think the F20 is different. When I show pictures of new cars to my wife, her reaction is usually ho hum, since she's not a car person. Even the cars that I think really ugly, she would find them to be sort of interesting, or sort of meh. But when I showed the pics of F20 to her, she started laughing out loud. As in, "whaaat? hahahahaha"

That never happened before. Granted, it's just the two of us, but I really think this car (more specifically, the damn headlamps) looks far too funny and stupid to be sold as a BMW. And that's a lot worse than just being weird or ugly.

P.S. I LOVE the interior. It's light years better than the current gen. Makes me wonder how much nicer the F30 interior would be over mine.

Still not feeling this car. Headlights are hideous.

No photo angle of this "BMW" is remotely appealing. It is very VERY ugly.

Lets just hope that they don't do this to the future 2 series.
