Can't say I like it, but it looks way better than the 5 series GT. that's not saying much, but this doesn't repulse me.

No too bad after all... but i still prefer the 5GT over this actually...

Having said that, i would rather buy something else... not my cup of tea yet.

I think the trunk spoiler on the mojave modern would look better on the white M sport.

Overall I still don't understand the reason for it's existence, but that's not to say others won't appreciate it though.

That big trunk/boot sure would come in handy for my weekend Costco shopping trips!

It's as hideous as the Accord Crosstour but more expensive.

Looks ugly. I would't spend the money on something like this. And the rear active spoiler looks like it's there to compensate for an aerodynamic problem created by the design, because I can't imagine than they would put an active rear spoiler for sporty dynamics reasons on this car.

It would be a good car for a woman with kids, with plenty of cargo space and more ground clearance than the regular 3 series, even the wagon. But isn't the X1 for that ? I don't think this costs less. And why offer the M-Sport trim for this car, it doesn't make sense.

The rear taillights are very similar to the e90 LCI tail lights, which is a good thing.

To me, it looks better than the 5. However, overall not feeling it.

It's not my first choice, and I doubt many folks will buy it because they think it's beautiful. That said, I'm hoping it sells so poorly that by the time I'm ready to buy my next car, the dealers will be very heavily discounting this thing. Were I given the choice of three grand off a coupe/sedan or five or more grand off the 3GT, I could see myself going with the 3GT. I'm sure it drives and handles pretty much like a 3er sedan, and the added space and legroom certainly wouldn't hurt to have.

Sure, the X1 is for that. But, this car offers a somewhat higher level of luxury; there's an uncharacteristically high volume of hard plastic in the X1. Moreover, the 3GT has two permanent cup holders, neither of which intrude into one's legroom.

I really hope that's not the steering wheel that comes on the M3

I've seen another photo where it shows the side vent at a better angle and it does look functional.

On another note. I noticed yesterday that the F30 has air vents on the side of the fog lamps.
