f22: Does nothing for me in terms of exterior design. Probably drives the best of them all and is the most fun. The headlights being detached from the grill make the front of the car look 10 years old. It is just not in line with BMW's more recent design language. Still scratching my head on that omission on the f22.

+2 But the front of the 2 is nice. I would rank then 3, 2, 4, but would be very happy with any of the them.

I have to completely disagree! They all look very different to me, 2 series headlights have a different look to the 3/4, all have different grilles, and all the bumpers are quite different!

The only similarities too me are the colour & the BMW badges on the front and back! Oh and the 3 & 4 share the same bonnet!

I don't like the front of the 2 series as much as the 3/4.

So, fog lights are available with M-Sport in Europe it seems.

if i ever see one of these in my rear view mirror, i can't even tell which model it is. to many people in the world that don't follow bmw, they look just like each other with only diff of 2-4 doors.

soo sad bmw

Someone remember when BMW said the successor of the 1 Series Coupe was being redesigned by an artist?
I mean, the car is good looking, but the effort of making it look less aggressive and less expensive than the 3/4 is evident.
That's why a M2 is needed.
I think BMW worries too much about cannibalization.

in the car business, this is called the "AUDI-EFFECT"; when all various model cars start to look identical.

Pretty subjective...I think the 2 is the worst by far with it's overstretched front lamps.

Its like picking apples and peaches.
The 4 all the way. The 2 is a little dwarf looking on the awkward side, its really trying to be manly but can't get there and the 3 well a family sedan.

They all look okay to me,
my only complaint is they all look outdated already.
