The main reveal is Monday right ?

I am hoping for something other than red, but I'm sure that's what we will see.

looks like there is a some shade of grey m4 there?? based off that grill pic? (mineral maybe, or is it just odd shadowing?)

either way can't wait to follow this show!

i honestly cannot tell this car apart from a 4-series....aside from the fact that the light doesn't connect to the grille. very disappointing that BMW have become Audi now.....with no distinctive style within the range.

Tired of seeing the M235i in red other than that I'm excited for this show to begin

+1. Sigh.

EDIT - although since there's not a ton of bright colors for the M235, maybe that's why BMW is running the red into the ground with this car

It doesn't look nearly as huge to me as the 4 series - different bumper styles from the front too.

I had always wished that the E82 looked more like the E92, especially from the front - it would have helped the "bug eyed" 1er quite a bit...

It will be interesting to see in the flesh

Scott, will the general public be allowed to actually get inside the M235 ?

Or will it be locked ??

wow no way! that's probably why you like the F22! i always hated the generic looking E92 front end....LOVE the E82's front end, as it is a tribute to older BMWs. much more 'classic'.

I really wish the F22 had a more distinctive style to it......i hope the M2/LCI fixes things.

US version BMW 1 series were tremendously ugly, only 1M managed to somehow salvage that design. Front end just has that "retarded" look. I'm glad 2-series is here to replace that mess.

I can respect the difference of opinion.

It's been forever, but before the E82 coupe was officially revealed, there was a photoshop circulating on 1 addicts that had a very "E92-ish" front end - I was so hoping that's what we would get, but wasn't meant to be.
