I think this looks amazing and the rear is not great but it's fine. The whole thing has a cyberpunk look to it.

Honestly think the car looks great except for the trunk area. It seems a little too square or something. Also the taillights sorta bother me but I think they'll grow on me eventually. Excited to see what the M2 will look like!

Looks like a large man sat on the back trunk area and squished it

Still really awkward from most angles. Straight front view is weird and the rear is terrible with those tail lights sticking out.

I don't hate it hate it. But the back is super weird for sure. And the front leaves me wanting halos but looks good overall. Could have been worse but 100% could have been better

I'm liking what I've seen so far.
It somehow retained the current 2 series styling (especially the rear) while evolving into a more modern design.
Not a huge fan of the headlights like many others said, but you can't ask for everything.
Can't wait to see the G87.

I'll reserve judgment until I see it in the flesh but, it's not looking promising, looks very awkward

I think with the right wheels and the car in the right colour it is gonna look awesome! It's just the weight of the car that really hurts me…

Same car with previous gen head and tail lights with minor tweaks should have been the design.

Rear looks bad.

Why are all the grilles/vents closed? I'm also getting BRZ vibes.

I still can't tell if those triangle vents in the front are only cosmetic or functional. I would assume the latter but can't tell from the photos. Also, what's up with the old school door handles?

Hard pass. I like nothing about it. This new design styling across the coupes and sedans are just awful. (Exception: 5 series, 8 series)

Angel eyes BMW, angel eyes. Overall I think it's a looker and will grow on people overtime. A la G8X.

So basically never update any car and keep doing minor LCIs, got it.

It's a bit weird but I like it. Like the purple and grey. Interior looks subtle but classy. Maybe if I was in my 20's but overall not my cup of tea. I know a bit contradictory. Most importantly how are the driving dynamics...
