Man I had made the whole post and not pressed submit cuz someone dropped by and i still wanted to add a little, that was like 3 hrs back...then i totaly forgot to submit..anyhow..u beat me to it..

se how the front is inspired like the new Audi's A8 and A6 that will be launched soon in the US..and the lights are the same as the 1 series..

but its not bad..looks alright..looks a little bigger from the inside..that the current one..

but over all an improvent no doubt..just have to wait and see...

Cheers

wow. the new 3 does look good except for the rear where it loses out its identity as a BeeEm. The section between the headlights does look like a take-off from the new A6.

BTW are these official pics?? Or Pshopped pics??

I like the looks of the car. Even the interiors are good. Typical german build quality - IMPRESSIVE!!
Just love the masculine aggressive stance of the car. Chris bangle designs look good in real but don't really come out good in pics.

I agree with you on that amit, I love every single beemer on the lineup , the only exception being the 5's back..thats a little awkward...anyhow i dont like how ppl generally criticize the 7, its an absolute beauti from the back and the front..just a perfect blend to make a perfect car..

and v12 these are the official pictures from a brochure..i will just provide the link which M forgot...

I like the front end, but the rear is just too messed up. I also hate that deep slash on the side profile of the car.

Dirty. The car looks ugly when seen in the 'real' and not enhanced images.

yeah..in the worked pictures it looked good, but here it just doesnt look good..I mean BMW is really going down the drain, in my opinion 7 is the best looker, then the 6, then 5 and now this.. I dont know what they would do to the X5 when it will be due for redesign soon I guess.

Oh well what can you do..have to live with it..its just too bad that the next gen M4 coupe will be based on this crapy design..well good for nissan/infiniti cuz in the same year they are lauching the Skyline GTR under the infiniti brand(I think worldwide a year or 2 later) in the US in 07 with 450 horses have to start saving up for that..
