They made the wrong move getting rid of those door handles. That would've really set the car off.

And forget about all that beautiful leather stitching we saw on the concept, that'll be an expensive individual package. All in all, looks very typical in production form.

They need to start using LEDs out of the gate. It's 2012.

I'm quite happy that the F32 looks like the F30... just 2 doors less !

True. It's like adding ABS to the LCI models only...

I've been saying it for the past week but everyone just had the biggest hard on for the concept thinking that's what it is actually going to look like. That concept was just meant to stir interest and get people excited, which it did, but it is too bad that most of its best features won't make it into production. Hardly a surprise though.

Is this maybe a new, improved red color? Looks more like Vermillion Red than Melbourne Red in the new photos.

I'm a bit disappointed, if not surprised. It looks like a 2-door F30, which is fine. It does NOT, however, look like something that merits a separate model designation nor does it look like it merits an estimated 2,000+ price premium over the sedan. It's gonna need a HP bump or some additional equipment to pull that off.

So I guess with more being revealed, it would be very surprising if there was a significant premium. It's too plain (which is fine because it still looks like a BMW) but nothing seems to really stand out to warrant such a bump.

+1 to that!

This looks sky-high for an M-Sport. Unless it's an xDrive, I guess. The wheels and tires look TINY in those massive wheel arches.

The silver car with the front/rear bra doesn't look near as dysfunctional.

Those wheels look amazing. Would be great if they'd offer something like that.

Bland. Looks like an a5. Shame they don't have the conviction to follow through on the concept. Range rover did with the evoque and it was a hit. Too many conservative bean counters in the way...

I love how they go through the effort of hiding the hood badge by putting camo on it, and removing and BMW logos on the wheels, but leave the kidney grilles uncovered.

They made the wrong move in getting rid of the elements (like the door handles or the mirrors) from the concept. That would've made everyone else stop and stare.

I also predict it'll have the same plain-Jane F30 interior. The concept had an individual package - ANY interior can look sharp with an individual package. I bet only a $2,000 premium will simply get you an F30 with 2 doors.

It's a shame it's gone from an Earth-shattering looker to "every other BMW". I was looking forward to owning one. We shall see when it's fully revealed.
