Probably criticism is stronger in USA, but where I live in Europe, I don't hear many positive reactions either. I presume that 18inch alloys and the M kit do it a lot of good, but the ones I see have no alloys at all or 16inchers. None of my colleagues desire for one, while they do for the F10 and a bit less the F30.

I hope that it has to grow on people, like many state here. I believe they could have realised a long lasting premium design with slimmer head and tail lights also, skipping al the negativism. Is pointless waste after all, a risk they could have avoided easily.
