The rear looks the most strange to me when viewed from the side or directly behind. From the side, the bumper panel projects rearward so that the car looks like itís trying to **** part of itself. From directly behind, the styling lines from a distinct sharp rectangle that contrasts noticeably with the rest of the curves.

And yeah, the color isnít doing it any favors. Despite the love that IOMG is getting, I feel as though the color palette is really limited. I felt this way about the F8X as well, and itís a shame you have to opt for individual paint to get a more varied palette.

The M3 rear looks decent with the CS type lip spoiler, rear diffuser and large exhaust tips. I also like the wheels and side skirt design.
The front is hideous with no redeeming quality. Grill, hood, fake vents etc.

M4 on the other hand is complete disaster and even rear is hideous with Lexus tailights.

Besides poor styling - performance/weight, lack of DCT, Lack of CF strut bar etc - its just not that big of a leap from F8x cars in RWD form. The only cool feature are the Sport seats.

Yup. The thing is a total abomination. I keep showing my wife pics and she wants to vomit.

The interior is about the only thing I can get behind. All the G series rear ends look like a Lexus to me.

True Story. When I was finalizing my 2nd F82 a year and a half ago at the dealership we pulled in and parked next to what I thought I was a white Lexus. I got out and was flabbergasted that the "Lexus" was in fact a new BMW 3er. Not good.

These cars are not for us anymore fellas. Not sure who they are for but definitely not us.

I mean, look at the attached screenshots I took.

Am I just not cool enough to appreciate the design language? (DONT ANSWER! haha)
Fish eye lenses distort reality. It will look better in real life, but still not my cup of tea.

Exactly, because it's the only way to tell it's a BMW from the rear .

This is a joke so take it as such

I went to my nutritionist and asked what's the best and quickest way to loose like 20 lbs within the next week or two.
She said she just received this new weight loss solution and hands me a folder.
She said that after each meal I eat and it doesn't matter what it is I should just look in the folder and get ready to loose all the weight I want.
So after my first big meal the next day I open up the folder and see what's inside.
Pictures of the new G80 front, the G82 rear close ups and then the fake vents I couldn't take it anymore and proceeded to vomit.
I tell you guys I lost 10lbs in the last few day using the folder with these pictures after each meal.

I am already banned so why not

Donít insult a Lexus! I could have gotten behind a Sc500 type grill. But the grill and the hood with ugly two indents - what are they supposed to be anyways??

Yeah that dude is absolute worst but the type of poster BP seems to want nowadays. Just someone to fawn over whatever BMW puts out.

those photos look like they're a render from a 2012 gran turismo game. i feel the same way about not warming up to the car at all. i used to just not like the grill, but now theres a lot more that looks off to me. for some reason when i look at the lights, i see the side profile view of a rabbit:

A DCT would just add back the weight, just get the manual if that's the goal..

Fair point, however the performance advantage of the DCT more than offsets its weight penalty.

The irony is I see some of the Aztec styling in the G80/G82...

At least front wise.
