I thought the F20 front was ugly... until I saw the F30. F20 front looks beautiful to me now.

I'm not much of a fan of the F20, but this one looks really good. Congrats.

Car sits nicely on that suspension, looks as low as my 135i - sporty yet civilised. Also loving that suede for the seats! I got like crappy 'Dakota' leather, nothing close to this (although you'll need to take good care of them, more high maintenance!). Congrats!

I completely agree with this. ^^

The headlights kill it for me. The rest of the car is nice, but nothing to go OMG over. I don't think hatchbacks are something BMW should be getting into IMHO.

Sure looks great with m-sport, even though I still don't like the headlights.

That is the best looking F20 I've seen yet. I really wish BMW would offer the alcantara interior in the US. Those seats are awesome.

The I have seen three new F20's with those twin exhaust pipes(all in different locations). All have been 125i models (N20 turbo four). Even the 120d has a single tail pipe - at least all the ones I have seen so far.

Congrats - a beautiful car! I love the diffuser in blue, rather than grey.

Am a bit surprised to still hear the haters crying "ugly", though. First, the headlights look way better IRL (maybe they haven't seen it yet).

Second, who wants a car that looks like what everyone else is driving? (Oh yeah. 3-series drivers. )

Bmw F20 is a car that does not look good with the first moment. It is actually very pretty, it grows the more you see it. I thought not was beautiful when it arrived. But now I've had it for a while is really nice. But without the xenon, it looks unfinished. F20 is fantastic to drive.

Like how many have said frequently. This young 1 looks like crap in pictures. But when seen in person, it would really change your mind like an infestation. =D

People drive M3s overseas while we can only afford public transport in my country..

even more massive on the color-corrected pics. Estoril-blue must be the most beautiful factory-available blue color ever made. Too bad it was not available when I ordered =(
I liked the le mans blue on the previous generation but this is even better.

but hey jimmern, get some uhm "låsbultar" (locking bolts?) on those wheels quick! If I had those wheels I would be seriously worried I'd find my car stranded on the street without wheels one morning.

Or keep night-watch
