The last-gen Prelude was actually gorgeous.

My issue with this car, amongst very many, are the headlights and taillights. I'm at such a loss for BMW design nowadays...

With near 100% certainty, there will be no manual transmissions anywhere.

The G87 will be available with a 6MT.
Sorry yes, only the G87. Looking forward to seeing that car. Basically a newer/better/faster version of the Supra, but available with a manual.
Perfect

The Zupra is absolutely horrific in the looks department

Supra looks great in person. Much better than a regular 2 series, although not as nice as the M2.

Like most Lexus/Toyota sports models (GSF, RCF, LC, Supra) the car doesn't photograph well. New IS350 also looks phenomenal.

I think the new BMW design language is similar to Lexus/Toyota in that they'll look much better in person.

I saw a Blue one today not bad at all up on the transport truck

It's got a typical Lexus Toyota odd Predator vibe going on

Snap-crackle-pop tune is sure to get you pulled over

I'm not sure what to make of it but it goes like hell

I'm honestly really surprised those leaks are the next 2er. I thought it was some non-North America econo-model. It looks like it was designed in like 2005. The taillights are essentially the same shape as the e90 lol.

Makes sense. SUV sales are obviously up so they don't rock the boat with those. Refine, refine, refine.

Sedan/coupe sales dropping so let's mix it up, take more risks to compensate.

As far as the super wide but not long grills, anything is better than the G8x grills.
Any historical element at BMW is dead. New design chief at BMW has been quoted saying he doesn't care about historical elements, specifically the Hoff kink.
Do you have a link to this "quote" from him?

I'm genuinely interested...

People hated the taillights of the current 2er when it came out too. The new ones are worse imo, but they're not terrible. Maybe prolonged exposure to the new 4er has destroyed our eyes...

LOL someone forgot to knock on wood.

I actually did see those and I'm not crucifying it just yet. I'll wait to see one in person for my final thoughts.

Looks like a bloody modernised Toyota gt-86. Awful and tasteless design, plus it's super soft looking which is miles away from current M2...
