It looks amazing.Very aggressive design for the standard 2 series.This is very promising for what the new G87 is going to look like.Finally a great new design from BMW.

Looks fantastic! So clean and simple, the single headlight looks great too, so modern. Still unmistakably very BMW looking, and can we talk about that color?

Looks quite good!

Maybe it's just the lighting and picture quality but it looks like there's a black outline around the cerium grey on the grille?

Looking forward for the official release.

Looks like BMW new design language include M mirrors for m-performance cars now. The official M440i GC photos had them as well.

As others have noted, it looks better with the camo.
So, if one painted or vinyl wrapped in body Color in that area, it would soften the look of these harsh shapes.

Part of the G42 2er front end design.

But IMHO unlikely that those will feature on the G87 M2. Modern BMW M front end lower intake design prior to the G80/G82 M3/M4:
/----\ design instead of \----/ design. See here.

Expectations about the G87 M2 front end lower intake design (featuring a V-shaped LiDAR central in the lower part) are more akin to this render (modified by xjz):

Always disliked the way the 2 series looked, short stubby and awkward, the new design is not much better, no thanks
