I saw the G80 Competition in the flesh at a BMW driving event in NJ. I can attest that the renderings are pretty darn close. Great job!

They didn't allow us to take phones in. Lol

Oh wow the car looks so amazing!!! (I'm typing this as I'm looking at my F80)

The new design looks terrible


The OP is an amazing renderist though

those hood indentations are horrible, and would def not choose the ACC option, position looks way too weird.

Could you update your render to include a US plate? I've only seen euro plates up to this point.

I like the fact that they are taking a chance in this ever shrinking coupe / sedan market

It's unique and I like it. The same sausage diff length mentality BMW has used for the last decade is stale

Great render, as always. Would love to see the autoblog bumper normalization photoshop on this.

At best it's a child's design- an immature interpretation of "aggression." Imo it lacks sophistication and class. Enjoy I guess- I think some broad generalizations can be made about tasteful design and this thing gives any of that sort of cultivation a wide berth- as I will give BMW if they continue down this route.

Maybe BMW should put you in charge of DESIGNING their cars since apparently they lack the skills.

What bothers me more is the center of the grill. I'm not sure if it's required bumper bracing or what, but on spy shots it's clearly flat, with the grill slats printed on, similar to other mfrs making their logos flat for sensors.

I think I know what you mean, the 4 series grille is horrible but the M4 works because of the shape and separation between the grilles... Does it protrude like the 4 series, pig like, or is the grille flatter?
