The more I look at it the more it just looks like a 3 series GT and not in a good way. That rear just looks out of place. Also there is no RWD version correct? W t f

Those fake exhaust tips are such a horrible trend. Just make them round and attach them to the pipe please. They look very cheap and pepboys add on budget mod.

Explain to me how this is a Gran Coupe.

With the 4,6,8GC, I get it, they have low, coupe-like roofline which make the car lower and wider looking. But this 2GC looks like a normal sedan, with a normal sedan roofline, that's much taller than any existing GC. So, why not just call this a 1 Sedan?

If I am objective I will say that the front needs a redesigned front bumper. It's really ugly as it is.

The profile is not bad, and the interior is fine.

The rear also needs some work though. Maybe the LCI will fix these issues.

I just hope BMW as a company will listen to their customers. A company that just does what they want, without adhering to the reviews from their customers is doomed to fail.

It's as if BMW wants us to see more angles & specs of the car to change our mind. No it's still fugly.

I didn't notice this in the original leaks and release, but these body panel cuts/gaps look extra weird to me.

And of course it still has the line across the hood opposed to connecting at the top of the grille, but I know that ship has sailed...

BMW is really causing quite a stir across its line of non suvs. But US consumers want crossovers and suvs. It's what sells. Once they f those up, turn out the lights.

Disappointing. The Dodge Dart from half a decade ago (and a fraction of the price) looks way better and much more cohesive. It even had a Hofmeister kink and Zicker line! How BMW f's up something as simple as an entry level car is beyond me. Huey-Doinky needs to go.

I'm guessing it's cheaper to replace and fix with all those panels.
