They need to lose the obsession with the black bits down the doors, and having random models walking in front of the car.

Otherwise it looks bang on!

Makes it look even worse

This will eventually grow on me though, there are no flat out egregious issues like the G8X

I like it, I think the black accents would look great with a red base

Big fan of the CS style spoiler on this otherwise hideous backend. Helps the propositions a good bit

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Frank Stephenson described the 2-series design language very aptly.

The black accents are hideous but I understand they have to show it for those people with weird taste. The female model looks as they are catering to the Instagram addicts

None of the individual elements of the car look that bad, but the total package looks like it's been pieced together from 3 different cars.

I must be BMW's target audience then because I love this design. I wish the BG color was actually as dark as the pics make it look… I really wish they offered the Dravit Gray color.
