      I dig this M3, grilles and all, especially in that green. The M4 side profile and proportions aren't right for me.

      The M4's rear haunches just seemed to have lost the muscularity that they had before.

      Also, why show the car in highlighter yellow?
      I am not associated with Weber-Stephens wonderful American-made grilling products, nor with Guy Fieri or Martin's Famous Potato Rolls.

I'm getting the feeling this will turn out like every other generation, get attacked at first, and then people get used to it and like it. I remember hating F series cars when they first debuted....and now I own one.

      The M4 on the other hand just falls flat for me.

      I was gonna **** on this for being the first M3 over 2 tons, but that dubious honor goes to the E93 M3 (convertible). "This will be the first 2 ton M3 with a fixed roof" just didn't have the same bite. Either way the juice doesn't seem worth the squeeze. For all that extra weight they should have brought back the V8 with a hybrid system to clean it up. Revs + sound + torque + green and it would actually give BMW something to develop rather than iterate.

      Yes. I love this car so MUCH. Gigantic grille is bit overdone, but I still love it.

      I feel like the Euro plate actually helps break up that grill. Not sure it'll be the same with US plates.

      Otherwise, if I were shopping in this class I’d be waiting for CT5-V Blackwing, which the CT5-V has its own design issues but nothing as egregious.
      Clearly I am biased, but I prefer this front end too. I can't see how it would be swapped in without some custom work around the fenders and hood.

      Having said that, if the BMW Gods bestow us with the M3 wagon I will get over the pig nose and do my best to get into one.

      When I worked on BMW they described this car internally as 'Liquid Cocaine' does it look like that?

      In certain colors I think the design looks much better. This blue looks pretty decent to me. I think seeing it on the streets and in person like I got to this past weekend will change people's minds a bit.

      The 7 series kidneys were polarizing online and even more so in person. I can’t imagine how these will look in person. Either way I feel like die hard M-Boys will still clamor over it and it’ll sell well. It’s almost as with every new gen they make the previous gen more appealing.

      I'm surprised no one seems to be missing the lack of "power dome" (I believe that's what BMW calls it) on the hood of these new cars. It was a feature starting on the e46 through the F8x cars. I don't like how they've removed this feature and put the emphasis on the front grille.

      I did think about that--I decided the grill going above the front fascia and back through the hood was replacing it.

      Now, if you tick the boxes next to Carbon Ceramic brakes and other such stuff, then yes, $100k will be possible.

      But it was also possible to get the F80/F82 within striking distance of $100k.

      In the fact, using inflation adjusted dollars, the new M3 is actually cheaper than the F80/F82 when released.
      I'm disappointed. I would think a lawyer would practice better reading comp (pun intended). jk

      The M4 Comp with options will definitely sticker well above 100k.
