    They need to design some of these cars from the ground up like Mercedes. Every BMW is now a derivative of the 3 series just like every audi car looks the same. For models lower than 3 series, it seems like they are thinking about how to make the 3 series look uglier so they can sell it cheaper.

    Huh…I was just thinking, it’s about time BMW released a really good looking coupe. The greenhouse, imho, is too low and the sides too high, but overall I like this more than the 1, which was the only decent looking coupe/sedan BMW made after the e46 coupe.
