Guess I was wrong about that being a cheap aftermarket piece.

Looks like those bent pillars in the middle surround the ACC sensor?

Looks like the headlights match the G42. Might as well drop the camo there if it's true.

The current market is no way to judge sales. This market is nuts, all brands in my area have no inventory. Everything is selling.

I guess the question is what is the deal with headlights? The leaked bumper doesn’t work with G42 headlights. Is M2 getting its own headlight?

That is why I say over the next couple of years. Too soon to really judge how long this kind of shortage for all the brands will last, TBH. However, even if every brand is facing a shortage but still selling everything they put out on the lots, that still has to say something.

Most people aren't going to go out and plunk down the money for an M2/M3/M4 that they absolutely hate the design of just because they can't find anything better out there. There will be some out there that will buy purely for the performance enhancements alone but I would imagine that most that buy are buying because of the performance and they like the way a vehicle looks to a certain extent.

Lol oh well. I held out hope and just gonna put my stick down and walk away quietly.

I can no longer stand to look at the chaos coming from this company any longer.

2022 is going to be a sad year in auto design as a whole even the RS3 is over done.

I own the BMW Generations that I like and it's ok to not like every generation as every generation is not necessary going to be a home run. Their will always be misses in my humble opinion anyway.

Yes some
Will like and some will hate. But like others said sales will dictate how long the refresh will take.

Anyway I think I'm gonna walk away from anything new from this brand for a while and go play with a new Bronco (it looks like a lot of fun) for a bit until BMW can fix itself looks wise.

Their still great engineering wise and BMW's are still great to drive but definitely with the lights off.


Again just my opinion.

What's with the horizontal slats? Seems out of place on a BMW, especially an M. Otherwise I'm sure it'll be fine, as long as its not over-styled like the G8X.

First year of anything will usually sell well.

Look at the z4 LOL. Those numbers will
Make you run for the hills!

Right now in today's current market it's hard to even get a baseline as you can sell used cars for more than they where new!

My friend just sold his Kia SUV for more than he bought it for !

It's Craziness out their!

People are hungry for cars and theirs no inventory so people are actually buying what is available.



I mean my i3 is worth 3k more today than what I paid for it back in 2019!

Gobsmacked!

Does this mean that there's hope for corona ring headlights?

Maybe that can become an "M only" thing.

Yes, I know I am dreaming....so you're saying there's a chance!

Certainly looks more proportional than the last generation. A fresh dessign which is more suited to the M3, but lets hope it will handle really well.

The new 2er in general is over-styled

Not sure how this can be any different
