It's been a while since I was on these boards (after having owned several bimmers including various 3, 5 and 7 series). I am finally excited about BMW designs again (...couldn't warm up to the Bangle-era designs, revolutionary as they were).

I'm in an '09 GTI hot hatch for now (also owned many VW's and this is a fun little "transition" vehicle).

However, I have to agree about the hood line where it ends in the front (above the Roundel). The line is just too obvious (almost looks like hood paint protection film was applied but with a much more noticable line). I can't help but feel that previous hoods like on the E39 and E60 look more fluid. I hope they change that but won't hold my breath. Not a deal breaker, but I think it kind of messes up a nice design a little bit.
