    i triple checked, the McPherson is gone. It's not a name change, they use the new double wishbone which replaced the McPherson Strut in F10 5er as well. Hope it's not gonna give a boat-like handling to F30.

    strongly disagree. side profile looks good, especially the roofline.

    i don't like how the headlights meet the kidneys.

    Sometimes no change is good. I remember I used to love and own the 2nd generation eclipse body styling... Then they went to the 2000+ grand am look with the pentagon headlights. Looked like ass ever since. I'm glad when cars don't change too much to be honest. Not when there is a good thing going anyways.

    Can't get over how much the navi screen looks like an after thought.

    Looks like they designed the entire interior and remembered, "Oh f*ck we forgot about the navigation screen!"

    Makes me glad I have an E92. It looks so much better than the F30.

    I don't know, It looks like it might slide up fro the dash. I'm digging the heads up display for the driver. I want to know what the Sports Line specs are though.

    The steering wheel is very reminiscent of the Mtech 2 wheel that they made for us older BMWs. I kinda like it.

    This isn't very conservative, maybe it's a little less of a change than E46>E90 was but I think it looks perfect (except maybe that connection between headlight and kidneys, but it's minor).The only thing that could stop me from getting an M Sport 335i after my lease is up would be my ability to afford an F30 (or F80 or whatever) M3.

    Personally, it is way way too mild. Audi is pulling away in the styling department while BMW is stagnant.

    AUDI? Their cars have looked the same since the B7 A4... I like them, but they change WAY less than BMWs have in the same time frame and considering you've been criticizing BMW for going back ot the same sausage, different lengths philosophy I think you need to go to Audi's website and look at all their models. Spoiler alert, they're all the same.

    With that said, there's nothing wrong with a strong family resemblance. Personally, I'd rather be able to buy a BMW and just decide how much of a BMW I need (1 series, 3 series, 5 series) without having to sacrifice on features or styling on the smaller models. Why should I get $#@!tier leather and have to give up on the options a 7 series has just because I want a smaller, nimbler car?

    Uh... no they haven't. Even their facelift looks better than BMW's entire new generation:

    Not at all but remember the E39 generation? BMW was criticized for having to strong of a family resemblance and bland styling. This led to the Bangle era which broke them out of it. Now they are falling into the same pitfalls that were an issue before by playing it too conservative after they already broke the mold. This means a step backward but BMW has never been aggressive with styling traditionally... until Bangle.

    Renderings and real life are two different things. Audi's styling is progressing more than BMW's. It's edgier, modern, fresher.

    renderings of Just A3. facelifted A5 looks like A6, A7, A8, A1, Q3.

    the design of Audi's is more modern, i admit it. but let's see How these modern designs will look in 4 years. They will look dated, exactly how Bangle cars look now.
    The new design route from BMW is like the elegant route of 80's and 90's and it's exactly how a German car should look. it gets old, but much slower than others.

    that would cost more to build than the actual hood and a nightmare to repair.

    What do you mean ?? this is exactly like the hood is on the E60 ??

    I think my photoshop illustrates perfectly how good looking the F30 would look with the hood like that...

    this hood is different than E60's. it's shaped curvier and if they wanted to make the front end in one piece the build cost more than making 2 piece front end.

    i kinda agree with you. i like my e46 with the kidney grills attached to the hood all in one piece. that line kinda distracts and takes away from the lines of the front
