It looks like a photoshop of the 1 series and the 5 series.

wait, 4 doors? What does the M3 coupe look like?

It's odd that the first sketches of the new M3 are for an M3 sedan.

einsatz, its BMW's new naming scheme, all cars with odd numbers are 4 doors and those with even numbers are 2 doors

example:
5 series 4 doors
6 series 2 doors
3 series 4 doors
4 series 2 doors

not bad for the sedan, as long as they make the coupe much more aggresive.

Holy Rolleyes to everyone... you guys all hated the new M5 when you first saw pics.. and now half of you like the m5 now.

This car looks almost like the new M5. IMO


Which means i think its look really good.

I like it. This one has aggressive lines and the lights make it look mean. It'll probably look great in person.

Don't like the M3 in four doors. At least not that way.

its not the same M3. M3 is now as much of an exclusively 4 door car as the M5 is.

So you're saying we'll no longer have a 330ci either?

Sorry, whenever I see a new 3, 5 or Z I still have to hold back the vomit. Sure, the cars evoke an emotion in me, but it's probably not the emotion they're going for. The 6 series squeeks by with decent styling. But I don't think they did it on purpose.

The 3series coupes that we have now will be known as the 4series.

This member claims that the new 3er will have a design interior ala the new 5-Series. I dont like the sound of that.

At least when the 5 series came out I thought it would grow on me even if I didn't like it initially. It did.
This new 3 series however, has no chance of growing on me at all

DAMN, I must be the only one that thinks it's GORGEOUS. It doesn't have the Bangle-butt, it has the aggresive 5 series headlights that I liked, without that little thingy that the 5 headlights have up on the fender. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

As do I....I suspect that the entire trunk lid is a photoshop from a TSX.
