BMW did a great job with the M240! It almost looks like a proper M car. I would prefer this to the overly large M3/M4 and no ugly grille.
The only thing is the M3/4 has an awesome engine.

I can't wait to see one in person. The pictures look great, but I have a suspicion it will look even better in person.

Lots of weird details in the design, but about as good as you get from BMW these days.

Brooklyn looks great on that car. It's very fitting. Paint those lower gloss black portions the same color as the exterior paint and that car would look soooooo much better.

Thundernight looks great, but the lighting in these shots doesn't do Brooklyn any favors, neither do the black rocker panels.

I much prefer the gloss black grill. The posture of the car is a bit odd — mostly because of the high rear haunch and bulgy details out back. It could use a slight drop, but the M2 won't have that problem.

Really need to get my own eyes on one.

The side profile on the BG car gives a strange skinny optical illusion…otherwise, very cool!

BMW, please offer a body-colored “skateboard” option. From the side, the car looks higher than it is.

This is one of the many reasons the "Sport Line" looks better than the M Sport.

I agree.

Because of that separation, I don't like the rear or rear 3/4 shot. Front looks great!

I think you meant to say the Sport line looks better TO YOU.
