Fitting look for the new look of BMW's, which has grown on me but needs to continue doing so. I didn't like the 4 series early renders, as well as the 7 series, but now that the 4 is closer to being on the road, and has had time to grow, I can say I like it much more than I originally did.

I’m looking forward to seeing the new car and holding my judgment until I do. I grew up with family members owning M cars and finally reached a point where I can as well, so holding off on an RS5 sportback for the car I always wanted; an M3. I love the look of the i4 in the videos and I’m hopeful this new M3 will look as good, if not better. People don’t like change, but BMW decided they need to and I’m trusting they made the right choice. It’s 2020, it’s time for a change and BMW is the brand to bring everyone else into the future by leading the way.

Is this a surprise to most here, it looks a lot like the i4 concept. My apologies if someone else has posted this response. It looks hideous in the photos but you never know in person. For me Iím so glad Iíve got my 2018 M3CP. I just donít see the new version doing it for me even if itís faster and more powerful or handles better. Just my opinion.

Truly one of the ugliest modern luxury cars Iíve ever seen. The raw hoods looks like itís from a Dodge Charger.

They should have just made the front end on the G80 look similar to the M340i, but a much more aggressive version.

I’d really love to know where they got this “M car owners want more differentiation from normal 3/4 series” vibe?

To me the F8x M3/4 look stunning, and you can easily tell either one on the road apart from a normal 3/4 series.

The m340i will become the aggressive 3 and fill the hole of the old M3s styling approach and prices will continue to creep up on both the m340i and M3.

I just disagree, you want a hood decoration or whatever the f that is go ahead. I'll keep my grill under 2 feet please.

Don't we want to be deceptive sometimes. Don't you love when someone notices some small piece that only your model or your year had? I think M's should be different, but it should really be in the details. BMW has gotten a little M badge happy these days, so ok fine. But if you pull up next to your fellow forum member and have a little fun, that could lead to fun talks about what mods or plans some has. I get certain m purities, but the m (short of the M1) which I think is truly unique at the time, always pays tribute to its series.
