Great photographs!

The M-sport nose/bumper actually looks decent. I think the kidneys are a bit too rounded, almost like the kidney appearance of the E60 vs. the F10, i.e. F10 nose looks much better.

The standard bumper nose still looks awkward to me.

Words cannot express how much I hate those over scaled headlights. They are most horrible. I cannot believe that BMW did that. The rest of the car is beautiful.

The uglies got some very nice alcantara seats though. Those are approved. Bring them to 2-series coupes!

The e87 was such a great looker especially in Msport guise and now this


For the Americans that never got to experience the e82 msport:

I can't look at this car and honestly say it's good looking. The interior is nice, but I don't like the exterior styling at all. Just can't get into it.

I usually warm up to cars pretty quick, but I just dont see that happening pretty soon.. I love the previous generation, I think the f20 is plain ugly and unproportional

Yeah, can't believe BMW put a car on display with the nose piece/bumper cover gap fitted that badly.

I don't.

They look thinner than the current sport seats.
That's fine to save weight and give a tad more rear knee room, but I hope the support and cushion is still there.

I do not alcantara at all, at all, I don't like it, at all.

Hey Folk´s

First things first... the 4 Bangers are not the badest Thing on the F20

- if i had to buy One, one Thing is for sure... not the Urban/Sport or even the Performance Bumpers... they look all --> . Its only getting better with the MSport. Very Smart from BMW to show the best Bumper on a BLACK Car... its hard to see anything. The M Sport Rear Diffusor is (again) just Plastic... it looks damn cheap on that CAR --> PUT SOME DAMN PAINT ON THAT THING!!!! its just 1€ more in Production...

And again --> the Proportions are just wrong (Head/Taillights vs. Wheels)

And again --> why are those Cars getting bigger and bigger!?Its a god damn ONE Series... not a 3 or 5

My E87 was not "love @ fist sight" but at least it grow on me... i dont think the F20 ever will...

*Edit*: The Interieur and the M-Seats looking good!
