Rear headroom looks really bad... looks like how I ride my friends S5, with my head tilted.
Take a closer look at the tailgate it looks awkward lol

Same here. That, in addition to the protruding front grill with the connecting headlights, is hideous. The way you can see the sides of the front grill is like looking at an unfinished piece of art. It's so frustrating. I also think they need to make the headlights smile a bit less too.

This color is cool though. I dig it.

i need a screenshot of this color in the light, because with the overcast it reminds me of all those ugly as all hell pontiacs of the early 2000's slapped with burnt orange paint

Looks terrible.

Nowhere as awesome as it was on the M6.

And while we're taking colors from there, why not MCB, Singapore, and SMB?

This color looks better with silver wheels. Black wheels somehow mute this color. For reference M6

I think both the M3 and M4 look fantastic in Sakhir Orange and black wheels. I wish the kidney surrounds were also black.

I've been around forums since i was 13. My first forum was e46 fanatics about 10 years ago. I remember when the E46 got replaced w/ the E9X, the amount of backlash the car received. People hated the design, people criticized the BMW and Chris Bangle for ruining the BMW 3 series. The rear end was controversial, the front end not as bad but people hated the rounded front end look, people hated the lack of fender flares. They ruined the classic E46. Now the cycle is repeating itself to some extent, but consensus on this next generation overall has been better than the E9X arrival, which is a good thing.

At the end of the day, THERE WILL ALWAYS be something newer and believe it or not BETTER. The one thing I will miss the MOST about the outgoing E9X generation is that S65. Something about driving a 3 series M car, w/ a naturally aspirated V8 motor that sounds like an exotic w/ an after market exhaust is truly a joyful driving experience. However, the same engineers (M division) that developed legendary E30s, E36s, E46s, E9X, are now developing the next line up to replace the most famous and most important car to the M division. It is stupid to think BMW is going to let us down, we should know better.

Time will tell however. Lets wait until the final specs are released. I think this car will have more than 430hp, but thats just my opinion even though I read somewhere that the power specs were confirmed. I think it will be around 450-475, and they will offer a comp package later this time worth getting due to a boost upgrade to about 500-525hp.

With car engineering/designing, their is always a balance and compromise that needs to be made. For example, people are critical of the new generation F30's/F80's interiors. I can not emphasize to you guys, how much I hated my E90s interior, the cup holder design was absolutely garbage. With that being said, I do not like the placement location/ and design for the new navigation systems on these new generation 3/4's. Its a balance and compromise, shit cup holder vs. odd looking navigation placement. Another compromise w/ a 4.0L V8 and a 3.0L I6. A car that doesn't get MPG rather has a timer for a fuel gauge (V8) vs. a motor that is supposedly 25% more efficient than the V8. Balance and compromise.

At the end of the day the F80/F30 M, it will be better, it will be faster, it will be nicer, it will be sicker, it will be desirable, and for BMWs sake it will be a revolutionary M car. For those of us in denial its time to wake up. If I had the choice and could afford it, I'd have an E92 and a F80.. Shit I'd have a E46, E36 and E30. They are legendary cars in their own ways (maybe not so much the E36); I've been fortunate enough to grow up around a motor head M family. We have owned 9 M3's in the past 15 years. 2 E36s, 4 E46s, 2 E92s, and my E90. Each generation was significantly different from one another. Some things better and worse in every generation when you compare apples to apples. One thing holds however- every generation that replaced the outgoing one, was SUBSTANTIALLY better overall.

As for the looks, I think the car looks SEXY. Aggressive/MEAN, at the same time elegant and classy. BMW did a great job overall w/ the exterior design. The parts on this latest spotting look more realistic to what will be launched by bmw--- chrome grills, and no CF front lip like on the concept.

Cheers!

Yep! Mark our words.....this FX generation will be heralded too.

I really like the car. The color is what I will order with full black leather. I saw the paint on a sunny day in person and it is sharp!!! The camo really takes away from the lines, the lean and mean look we'd expect and the little details that make an M better than the 4er. The choice of sedan vs coupe is in the eyes of the beholder.

I like the color, but for my ride I would go with something a bit more subdued.

Keep in mind that some paint reacts to different lighting conditions more than others. Sakhir can look like Valencia under some lights, and very vibrant (though nowhere near Fire Orange) in others.

I'm afraid this IS the production version. They're just being careful not to fully reveal it until Detroit. Essentially the same car. The camp does take away from its looks.
