Looks like one big 3 series to me. they could have come up with a different look. i think they are just looking for an easy way out this is why im starting to dislike the new BMW's id rather buy a bone stock BMW and buy nicer looking aftermarket parts. IMO they could have done alot better, and been more creative.

they totally ruined the rear bumper. look where the indicators are located all the way up there. and that diffusor looks like it came off a 335 coupe/sedan. even the front bumper looks like it came right off a 3 series coupe.

I love the seats, but since most US buyers wouldn't want cloth seats, the chances of a US enthusiast being able to order that is probably slim to zero. So sad, once again we will not get euro parts

Take care the spec pages are riddled with errors. Looks like they did a copy/paste from the SE model pages and forgot to correct and insert some M-Sport items. Typical BMW UK marketing - complete lack of attention to detail, e.g., Standard Seats!!!! http://www.bmw.co.uk/bmwuk/pricesand...-bmwuk,00.html

Why no mixed wheel sizes as standard and worse still not reflected in the price uplift 3300/535i - poor value now!

I disagree.

M-Sport variants have almost always shared the same treatments, with minimal variation from class to class. The Bangle era was the exception with the E60, E8X and E9X classes looking relatively unique in M-Sport trim. This is a return to form. While not as unique, it's still clean and properly aggressive for its class. Regarding those reflectors: I think they're fine with their current position, and flow into the taillights pretty well, but I suppose they could've been lowered an inch or so. They leave the midsection of the bumper uncluttered.

I'm just not happy with the way the diffuser is shaped. It's pretty plain, and the lines around the top middle look awkward. It's not like the E92's bumper, with the reflectors and added lines in the side, and the different diffuser. You can only do so much while remaining tasteful for a production car.

Front Bumper - Score!
Side Skirts - Score!
Rear Spoiler - Score!
Interior Trim - Score!

Seats (although they will never make it to the US) - BIG Score!

Chrome Kidneys - Fail, should be black like the shadowline window trim

Rear Bumper - EPIC FAIL!

I agree with the post above me, M-Sport kits all look "similar" so yeah, it should look like a big 3er, um, hello, the f10 looks like a small f01, they all look alike! Some do not like that, but I do, I think it gives the brand "exclusivity." If everything had its own design, with no commonality, then the brand would look diluted, IMO...

Pretty hideous. I think the sharp lines of the lower front fascia clash with the smooth headlamp lines.

And as others have mentioned, the rear is a disaster, and the wheels are boring at best.

Tacky! Looks like a bigger and way longer 3 series. Not that a 3 series is bad looking at all. (I bought one and love it)
The proportions on this 5 and the earo... Not really feeling it.

Gonna have to disagree again.

The reflectors look out of place and reduce the visual width of the rear by breaking up the midsection.

The lines don't flow in the second pic. There isn't any symmetry.

If they could do a diffuser like the E92's it'd be much better.

The black panel on the rear looks awful. The spoiler on the trunk looks horrible. The front looks overcooked and too aggressive. Overall grade: C-. I will not purchase that version.

Alpine; you've pretty much nailed it!

Much much nicer

This is very much where they should had been ... they fit nicely with the V-Line of the rear lights. It could also look nice moved a little more to the edges ... would then be close to sensors.

Am I missing something? Why cant' I get those cloth seats in my M3?

Edit: nevermind, looks like the default pack has it "Anthracite & Black Cloth/Leather"

Anyone have pics of that?

All nice.... except the use of current/almost phased out M wheels.


Those wheels are so replicated and so boring already....


I think the new car deserves a fresh new wheel design....

my 2 cents..
