The new 2-series is disgusting. Idk wtf BMW was thinking with the front/rear design.

I'd rather pickup a used F80 6mt then the new G80. Def not as refined, but still pretty damn good.

As a current BMW owner, I'll be as nice as I can :D...

The G42 really does look awful, but it fits right in with the rest of their visually disgusting lineup as of late. If the latest leaks of the G87 are true, I'm not sure there's any hope for it either. It's a shame because the S58 is a beast of a motor, and they're dropping it in some of their worst looking cars of all time, even if they are extremely capable.

With the exception of the G20 all their new designs are laughable at best, and no MT kills the M340i. It started with the G22 and then you see how they defaced the G80/82. They somehow even managed to ruin the G01/G02 X3/X4 LCI as well. The electric vehicles to come don't look any better. We are about to witness a decade of ugly BMW's clogging up roads like never before.

They really are cluess; too worried about making bizarre advertisements, tasteless color scheme special editions, or collaborating with fashion designers than they are lighting a fire under the design team's ass, or better yet burning it down and starting over. There's not a more sell out, obnoxious auto manufacturer right now than BMW.

The M2 CS might be their last good looking car for a while, and even then the proportions of the F87 always looked a little off to me. For me they really hit their stride design wise with the E92 for the coupe and the F80 for the sedan.

On a positive note, at this rate I won't be tempted to buy any of their future cars, leaving my $ to the perfect spec'd Z.

Oh man I think that front end looks worse than the Zupra.
I hate the Zupra but I'd rather drive it every day, auto trans and all (can't believe I'm saying this part), than own the abomination that is the new M3/M4. I don't care how capable it may be or how sweet the S58 is. To me the G80 and G82 are some of the worst designs and ugliest cars in recent memory. It starts with the front end but doesn't even end there. At least you don't have to look at it while behind the wheel, but I could never be happy with one of these when approaching it or looking back at it from across a parking lot. Not even the best black paint job, though you won't get that from BMW anyway, can hide this level of ugly.

I don't hate it hate it. I might bite one day if BMW ever lets Toyota have a manual and they do something with all those ugly fake vents.

Back on topic, yeah this thing is hideous. WTH was BMW thinking?
