Yes, It looks okay apart from that stupid vent behind the front wheel arches! Also, not sure about the "pop up" screen for the music and sat-nav. It looks a bit of an afterthought.
So conservative and as usual, they tone down the front end of the car (primary area of it's identity) - reducing the lower bumper and creating a chinless wonder. Why bother showing us a very production viable, coherently worked version of the car in 'concept' (hardly) mode only to cheapen and compromise it to within an inch of it's life for production. BMW when will you realise, you sell enough of these things to stop wasting time and money on inane focus-group/marketing-men/accountants' (?) compromises, rather than acknowledge your market has the design intelligence to get the designers vision? Spend the money on details, have the courage of your designers' conviction and stop patronising your market.
so dissapointed, the concept looked so good, enough to tempt me out of my current car. However now they have released their true colours, just another generic BMW. Soooo Boring as usual.
I wonder if that whimsical, ill proportioned (fussy & too small. If you're gonna' do it, do it) and incoherent side vent has any function.
So different from the prototype, which I fell in love with...
