If it solves the got damn issue with BMW cars collecting an enormous if not totally unnormal amount of water in their side view mirrors then raining all over the side of the car.

Then it is definitely worth it, i have no idea what is up with BMWs water drainage of their cars but it's so shitty that it makes it laughable.

If having the mirror a bit further out the so be it.

My first impression is an ACURA ILX. BMW is now becoming a blend of Lexus , Acura, Kia on body style and has lost their uniqueness in design. Too soft around the edges and less BMW style. I love BMW but their losing me more and more.

I like it very much!
Finally BMW realised it is actually 2020! Up until about 2017 they were still listening to Spice Girls... (one reason I never owned one before)

Not digging the colour though. And the fact this model is offered with 3 cylinder engines, but that does not apply to the 235i of course.

Cars are not bad, the one thing they should stop fiddling with is the M badge.Either its an M or it is not and not something in between.

Thanks for posting the photos BarlasaM

I think it's only fair to add BMW of Cincinnati marketing to the front of the G20. Plus it provides a better comparison of the fronts of the two cars.

X3 lineup should just be 30i, 40i and X3M. Same with the X5 lineup. I bought a 40i and they plopped an M in front of it. I would have bought it without the M. As a matter of fact, my wife made it very clear she didn't want an M. She wanted a reasonably comfortable, a little sporty and ability to tow and haul things SUV. I had to work hard to convince her this M was not like our last M. The test drive convinced her it was ok. So that's my litmus test.

Like the rest of the 99% of the world who aren't enthusiasts. It's a rather large market. They still want something "sporty" after all. Also, a FWD car can definitely be an enthusiast car. It's just not compatible with BMW enthusiasts who are used to RWD cars.
