That side comparison is very interesting. Poor lighting in the spy photo but the cut on the old 1 series that goes along the side to the rear looks much nicer to me. They may have sacrificed that line in favor of meatier haunches in preparation to "M" it. Very excited to see the final product though just like everyone else.

One could argue the non-sport editions of the 1 series are chick cars too. My girlfriend called my M Sport a chick car until I changed the wheels.

It seems pretty clear that the camera lens has warped and puffed overall forms.
I think it really will look more like this:

I like it, I think the color is boring that's making it look bland.

My favourite pictures from the 2 series are still the blue ones from here http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showp...&postcount=160

I think it looks there very sleek and sporty, the camera lens, rims and color change a lot of the impression of the car.
I hoped the 2 series will get a more grown-up look like the 3 series and I think it looks good until now. I don't like the leaked photos of the red one very much and the look isn't perfect, but I'm happy with what it looks, the technic behind it is more important for me, shortly behind that comes the look of it.

Really??

Who are you guys kidding? A bare bones e92 looks like a girls car, but a 335is certainly doesn't.

The same can be said about an F10 28i and a F10 M-Sport.

The 2 will be no different. An M sport front skirt, diffuser, rims, and likely a lower ride height, will give this car a much better look than the beige car pictured.

They didn't just scrap the red demo photographed months ago. That is the car, as it will be when it goes into production.

The C-pillar looks a little too narrow especially in proportion to those big ass haunches - but less greenhouse than the 1-er and that's a plus.

I've got a 135i so I'm def prejudiced - but seems to me the 1-er has such a classic snub-nose bull dog look. The 2 coupe...smoothed out- it's like they took out everything that gave the original it's unique character and now it looks like a small 4 series. Nothing wrong with that- if you like the 4.

I'm still open to considering the 2-er. Gotta see it in person with M-Sport pkg.

It's so much better than the E82! It's sleeker and it flow so well.

I think it really will look more like this:
If we add a few inches on to the wheelbase and roof panel and then add rear doors we get the perfect impression of the forthcoming Gran Coupe.
The slight stretch allows the more rounded roofline to be retained giving it a dynamic coupe-like roofline and stretched glasshouse.

The M Performance accessories mimic those introduced on the 4er .
The full programme will be announced for the Geneva Autoshow in Early March 2014..

The belief in the Gran Coupe is ever more apparent due to the lukewarm response the media have given the CLA and A3 Sedan. BMW believes the segment calls for sheer driving pleasure .

That actually looks better, even though it's not too bad to start off with

I know! But this is most likely modern line anyway. Usually basic BMWs are not that attractive, but this may be a different case.
