PEOPLE...from a design perspective the front and rear don't match, and have no cohesiveness. Secondly the renders are not in the current BMW design language. For example the M8,X5M,X6M,M5, m340i all have a similar design language. Bmw is not going to deviate too far from that for the G80 M3. If you want to visualize what it may look like just look at the current models.

Something is still not right. A recent spy photo shows a shark nose kink towards the top of the grill slats like the 8er has. I think the real car will surprise us and look quite attractive compared to all of the "leaks" and renders.

This statement reminds me of those who continued to insist that the earth was flat during the 19th Century.

Don't be a denier.... the car IS going to look like this. NOT like G80. Just look at the i4 concept out just today. I don't like it, but it's obviously what BMW wants.

Hard for me to get used to the lungs coming from kidneys.

When I had my e46 the e92 has to grow on me. From e92 to f82 I was immediately sold. I have to say I need to give this some time BUT not liking the new design direction at all.

They're actually somewhat similar when you think about it.

The kidney grille is definitely to big but the rest of the front design of the car looks pretty good.The rear is where the design really falls apart.I hate the narrow taillights and the rear diffuser looks awful.It has a kit car look to it.

The earth is flat. And BMW is a smart enough to build a decent looking car

It's not unusual for BMW to try new design elements on the 3 series and especially the 4 & M cars.

I don't know how you can still be in denial after all these leaks. If things are different, they won't be significant. We're probably looking at a 90% accurate representation.

There's tons of stuff that sells like crazy of which I think is ugly or poorly designed. Hell, it's almost a genre at this point. Purposefully obnoxiously bad in design. People eat that shit up. Kanye would love you

I mean, that looks great. Looks like the 8er to me. If that's the look you like just get that.

I mean, this is ugly. But I can see that this was intentionally and knowingly designed to be ugly. Ugly in an aggressive and scary way. I do not know if I could correctly describe my point, but that is my opinion. I am not yet sure whether I like it or not, but I know that I think it is ugly.

How have we not had a poll on who likes the new design? I would love to see the actual numbers from this forum

Some renders make the car look like 💩 and are rightfully hated on. Others, like this, are well integrated and aggressive.

I am almost certain bmw is leaking the pics and trolling us, getting us used to a new design with horrendous examples they didn't settle on so we love the final product even more!
