General design issue? Personal preference perhaps, but the F30 looks fantastic from the front. Aggressive and fresh.

As to the concept... I suspect the exhaust will mimic the current F30 exhaust looks and the LED front lights won't survive. Why have LED lights and halos....

Looks gorgeous except for the front and rear vents which hopefully are just Concept designs.

The 6er and the 7er have LED headlights as an option. Doesn't change or eliminated the coronas. I think the 4 Series will have them as an option, too. $1,900.

Looks amazing, if the production car is anything like that it'll be a lot more than a $5K bump over the F30 I would imagine.

The "exposed" F32 in the thread below looks so bland in comparison.

Possibly one of the worst interiors EVER! The decline begins...

it's a euphemism for Ugly as Hell. Theres a reason why everyone pics of their F30 area always a small corner or just the front left headlamp.

Because that is the design direction of the new 6er and 6 Gran Coupe. The light design will make it to production. It falls very much in line with recent offerings for their higher-end cars.

Hurr Durr doesn't look anything like '72 2002tii, disgrace!

I think the car looks great, looks very aggressive. Comparing to the silver f32 pics that popped up earlier, the concept will be toned down a lot. M Sport might look more similar to concept, and M4 will hopefully be just as aggressive as the concept.

Sign me up for one.

Given the cost of designing and building a light cluster these days I'd guess that you're right.

Didn't we get enough of those through-the-bumper exhaust pipes in the fifties?

im not liking that lace thing they do with the seat and cupholders, i guess its exclusive to bmw individual? and i dont like the position of the cupholders; youre gonna be in third gear and have to reach around the stick if you want a drink. other than that i like how you can see subtle hints that they are going back to some of the things, such as the layout, as the e46. black leather and aluminum trim is gonna look great inside that car

I just showed this thread to my son, and now he thinks I'm an idiot for getting the sedan and not waiting for this.

I'm guessing they'll have plenty of alternative interior designs for you to choose from. I think they're going for the highly customized look there...it's not my style, but I really dig that approach.

I like what I have seen of the 2 series over the 4. From reviews of the new 1 in Europe and the design it just feels like it will be a better successor for my e92 (not that it will be any time soon, I just picked it up)

Not just Europe that likes diesel, they are growing in popularity in the US too.
