I swear BMW is trolling us all with these ridiculously over sized grilles and copycat rear lights.

The front end looks pretty good. The grille isn't too big. It's just right. These tail lights look better with the 2er body kit over the 3er. The M235i GC xDrive will rip hard and won't be too costly. Depending on how comfortable sitting in it and feeling the drive is, this car is definitely on my radar for a future daily.

Bmw nearly doubled their global revenue since the 3 5 7 days. I agree with you ... bmw is out of control w/ these dam model #s but they're selling a ton of them somehow 😔

FWD ≠ BMW. I guess I'll have to hold on to my E90 until I can afford a Porsche...

Agreed, I don't understand how car companies stay in business with SO many models. This has to only serve to drastically increase manufacturing costs and inventory costs and shipping costs, etc and are they really gaining that much more market share with these products? I feel BMW is doing well from the headlines so maybe they are, but I do NOT get it.

What's the point of having almost every single series in your lineup available in both coupe and sedan. Blows my mind.

How about we reserve judgement regarding lights, kidneys etc. until we see the actual product?
As far as the overall shape it looks quite promising I think.

There will be no M-proper models on the UKL platform. Only M Performance M*35i models. BMW has decided not to offer equivalents to the Mercedes-AMG *45 lineup and Audi Sport MQB RS lineup.

They need to keep the sedans as sedans and coupes as coupes. 1,3,5,7 sedan. 2,4,6,8 as coupes. Thats how they were designed thats how they should stay. The idea of a "gran coupe" is getting ridiculous now and don't forget that they still have the GT's
