ill sum it up:

"we're grateful that BMW invited us to come see this unreleased car, so we'll try and go easy and sugar coat the fact that we dont really find it that exciting or cutting edge"

just about all the positive points were in relation to OLDER models, and how it emulated older styling.

Did Ish know he was going to discuss a car not be on an episode of Project Runway?

Anyway, I'm surprised they didn't like the lower dash panel or the interior color but, had nothing to say about the awful hood cut line.

What is that guy with the polka dot tie wearing? And did he forget to brush his hair?

It also surprises me that they chose a car with red leather to use in all of their initial promo stuff since its a rather polarizing color. I while I might like it for a day or two I could never own a car with that interior. I assume its the same car they've toted around to all of these different events including the videos they've made of it.

that one kid ("watered down, but potential is there" )is going to be majorly disappointed when he realizes that they've already done the m-sport and it looks like an E92 from the front (the m-sport bumper, not the grill/headlamps as those are the same for non m-sport)- and from the back, the diffuser (the rear component that differentiates m-sport from non m-sport) looks like probably about 3-4 other cars of cheaper brands whose similar looking models have been on the market already for years.

I own an '07 E92 and was waiting for the four, figured I might have myself an affordable six. Fahgedaboudit. Hate the dash. Hate the ricer lower bumper. Hate the fact that you can't tell it form an Accord from the side. And what the heck is that JCWhitney boomerang styling point on the side? I mean wtf, did they ask a bunch of seventh graders what would really spice up a bland design?
I'll pass, no thank you very much.

If this car was a pop song, it would be one that took a heavy daily rotation to catch on. It ain't no " Billie Jean" of designs. Just my .02 cents.

Full circle.

Bought a E92 because I preferred it over the E90

Bought an F30 because I preferred it over the F32.

The F30 looks more sportier.
