Just scanned these (Photoshop) pics from the latest copy of Auto Motor & Sport.

They're probably photochopped, but it looks like all of these spy pics and PS jobs are pointing in the same basic direction. I'm telling you guys, this car will be handsome when it comes out.

While it's not great, it's also not that bad, BUT it looks too much like a Jap car. I'm tired of BMW AG disappointing us with strange, awkward designs. The future looks to be even more grim than I had originally thought. :bawling:

Now that I've looked at the pics some more, the front looks like a Pontiac Grand Am. :thumbdwn: :thumbdwn:

This one's not so bad. No foot-long kidneys. No eyebrow turn signals. No BangleButt.

OTOH its now a bit too derivative; the front now looks more like a Pontiac Grand Prix, and the rear is a cross between a E36 Compact and a Mazda Millenia/Xedos9/Eunos800.

Wow I must agree, I think these pics are very stunning, esp. from the back... reminds me of the 850csi rear end for some reason (squaty).

Very nice!!

The butt looks much better than the 7 series, but I am not sure I like the trunk opening that wraps around to the rear quarter panels. Looks too choppy .

Imho, it's not ugly. Not sexy, either :( Even 7-er has more "BMW" in its looks than this.

Looks like I'll be stuck with 3-series if I'll want to buy BMW next time. Nothing else in the new line-up looks nearly as good.

Lil' hijack - any of you guys ever heard that manual seats have bigger range of adjustment than electric in E46? I need just an inch or so more head-room to be happy :)

Don't like it or hate it-- I kind of get the same feeling I get when I look at a Toyota Camry or a Saturn-- just kind of blah...

Not wild about it, but don't hate it.

However, that "waterfall effect" on the nose is lifted DIRECTLY from the current gen Grand Am. Of all the manufacturers to plagiarize... why GM? :dunno:
