My only gripe with the new styling is how they have scrunched up the inner headlights. Other than that the car looks phenomenal. Definitely would be my car if it were available.

The lights definitely aren't bad, they just aren't BMW. To me, the kidney grills and the 4 headlights are quintessential BMW. The rest of the styling changes and adapts. I feel they squeezed them a bit too much, j-sin's paint job is a good compromise. [and pretty damn good for paint!]
