Lol I said the same thing about the new 1-series. Definitely see the Angry Birds pig in these cars.
Time to maybe watch some adult films.

Looks like a Mazda had improper relations with a BMW... I just don't get this car. I mean, what is it? Is it that car you see in the rear view mirror thinking, "I'm gonna let this over because with all those vents it has to be fast". However, it doesn't pass you... because it can't... Anyway, just trying corner all segments of the market I guess....

This^

It looks like a Hyundai or other cheap car from the east - badly proportioned, never mind all the weird panel joins, grills, vents, exhaust tips etc. Mind you, I think this about all BMW 'gran'/GT car proportions, and the styling has been getting worse since the e9x were introduced.

You know it's crazy, they're probably still end up selling a lot of these. I wonder if the people back in Munich read these forms and see how categorically all of their brand loyalists and even peripheral brand owners think they're going in the wrong direction with design.

What's wrong with BMW. Since 2017 they make really weird cars
Grills are becoming bigger than myself and the DNA of the BMW angel eyes are destroyed. Even the F30 LCI i was not a fan of. For sure i'm not fan of all these new models. I'll stick to my F30

What's most devastating about this, is the fact that it's a blatant indication they are going to butcher the coupe.

The f22 was such a home run, to have this follow is pathetic.

I hope it flops as badly as the GT cars did.

A BMW for non petrol heads, a generic fwd drive platform with motor ahead of the front axel designed for understeer, no soulful 6 cylinder power plants , a flashy ugly design with too much front overhang , this is not a real BMW, it's revolting, an insult to BMW heritage, it does not deserve an M badge, makes me sick 🤮

At least for the 4 series, the GC outsold both the coupe and convertible...combined. Now, I don't understand why people like it. But they do.

I knew it was serious when even Honda pretty much made their whole lineup of new sedans the same body style with hatches.

Because the 4er GC is much better looking then the F30 3er that's why it sold so well.

i mean, the same goes for the F22 vs the F20. i'm not sure if they deliberately nerf the msport fron ends on the 1/3/5 series, but the 2/4/6 series will always have the better looking/more aggressive body. i just can't fathom the need for GC body over a wagon, or the SUV "Coupe" styling over an SUV. I personally despise the side profile.
