Couldn't agree more mate, the car looks amazing as is and will look even better with a few tweaks.

BMW have nailed the new 2

The most interesting take: he's saying that he didn't like the rear end in pictures, but in person it works.

I don't know, I think they could have made the wheel gaps larger

Very classy in this color. Wheels however, not so much. Maybe BMW will offer other options.

I'm not digging the two-tone grilles and the large triangles in the front, but otherwise it's very nice.

Finally some decent pics.

I don't love all the details, but looks good overall.

Think the silver trim would look better in black but overall solid.

That is sick for a non M car! Could only imagine that the M2 will be lovely.

BMW hit it out of the park with this one unlike the F82 which I got banned for chastising.

Funny how social media if you are honest but yet critical you are silenced. Hopefully this is a testimony that honesty prevails!

Well done BMW

I'm really digging it. That colour though is a bit too loud for my taste, but is nice. What's with the wheel/fender gaps Bmw? There're huge!

those triangles are the only part i dont really like but at least i done hate them. maybe the m2 will have a different bumper and it will make the car pretty much perfect. very good looking car though.
