The spied interior shows upgraded wraparound display screens (the G42 2-series gets the standard displays)

Well...I don't dislike the horizontal slats...but really hoping that front bumper design is NOT the final product.

Once again the leaks on here are proven to be correct.

This is going the same way as the G8x release. First the leaks, the denials that it can't be true, and then everything all starts to become reality.

Craziest part to me honestly.

Sometimes these new designs grow on me but not lately.

it's funny how many people will deny things until they launch then just complain. I think it looks tasteful

Sales so strong that the local BMW dealer has dozens of M cars sitting on their lot, while you can't find a 911, Boxster, or Cayman at a Porsche dealership anywhere.

What I'm not loving this particular leak, it could end up looking a bit like a retro squared off E30/E36. Still need to wait and see.

Guess BMW is watching Bimmerpost as well. The more leaks we can find, the less camouflage they will put on their prototype cars😜

They say the direction BMW is heading. They are looking to buck the trend of traditional and going for something entirely different. Only way to know if it truly works is to see how sales are over the next couple of years.

I don't like everything they've done as of late and I especially didn't like the G8x design at first but as more photos and videos rolled out I ended up loving it and ordering one.
