Post BMW 2 Series Preview Sketch by BMW Insider

BMW 2 Series Preview Sketch by BMW Insider

COMMENTS

Thus far, the spied camouflaged 2 Series Coupe and Convertible prototypes remain under heavy front camouflage, obscuring the front fascia design.

But BMW insider Scott26 has shared with us this sketch of what to roughly expect from the 2 Series. As one can see, the smaller (compared to F20) headlights will join the kidney grilles as we've expected. The front end's general look is certainly sportier and more angular based on this sketch.

Looks good. What I'm most looking forward to is the E30 M3 being reincarnated into the M2.

Whats with the Mary Kay edition?

Based off of that it looks like the current 1er, but with sleeker headlights.

I honestly doubt that any car will ever compare to what the E30 M3 was in it's time. The E46 M3 and the 1M coupe came close but the E30 M3 was in a totally different realm.

Look closely at the first spy picture above. Some very heavy cladding around the front grille and the space between the headlights and the grille. Its raised up with cladding hiding the join

Because it is covered in camo...LOL!

Told you in the other thread. Look closely, can you not see the headlight goes behind the camo skin that is overlayed the front of the car?

Like I said, the F30 had camo covering the same part of the car.

Not bad... Not bad at all. Hint...

Raise the lower windshield line upto the mirror stocks and you will be very close indeed.

The purple one is to low as well.

Looks good with some DNA from the current coupe and some of the new angular styling elements.

Not to be an ass, but what is with people making statements like this? Are you aware of the definition of camouflage? Do you think the fake body panels and swirl graphics are put on for nothing? God damn. Herp derp.
