You guys crack me up...

No one on this site likes anything base-model from BMW. This car is obviously a base model although the wheels and interior look pretty good...

Wait for video reviews of the M-Sport (and HID) equipped cars, I bet the styling will be a lot more well-recieved by the users on this site...

Like I said, with the right color and right wheels , its a good looking car. Looks a lot better than the photos suggest. You guys should wait with the complaints after you seen the car in real life. If not, your opinions doesnt say much.

.. says the mazda driver. I think angular could be good, but the proportions of the car just seem... eh. These new cars all look bulgy and swollen, like they're having allergic reactions to something under the sheet metal. IMO.

50mpg? I might lease one just because of that.
That's Imperial gallons, not US Gallons. 1 Imperial gallon = 1.2 US gallons, so this is around 41 mpg. Still not bad, though the diesels truly get 50 mpg US.

I happen to really like this car, but the way that bonnet fits in the front right corner is ridiculous. Somebody did not even look to see it needed an adjustment, and it's so simple too!!

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

I'm to blame. I should never have bashed Bangle all these years.

I doubt the Japs and Kories will copy this thing.

This car is beautiful in flesh, especially the M kit makes it look gorgeous.
Most Bimmers look ugly on pictures, that's because of flame surfacing.
