an updated E92 more accurately., it doesn't have 'small coupe' lines to it at all?
IMO if it looks E92ish that's great, the E92 is the best resolved/looking car made by BMW to date . Just my 2c.

that's true

but

i mean in SIZE

it looks a lot BIGGER than the E82

i hope the M2 takes styling cues from the 1M... because the 1M is a stunning car

i'll reserve final judgement for when lips/ducktails/etc. etc. are released for it

oh and after someone slams it if not bags :P

I agree with you on your statement Mister Alpine, the E92 is a nice shape...but the E46 M3 takes the cake in my eyes.

I feel a bit like the odd one out...

Proportion is good, but the bonnet looks a little too much like a mini dodge viper and those grills... Well Mazda ducked up with the dame Edna edition bt 50 bull bar and this just looks too similar... Nothing some black grills couldn't solve I guess.

I would be more likely to buy one if it looked more like an E46 (and if it had hydraulic steering obviously). While there are probably hard core BMW fans who agree, I guess most buyers are looking for something fresh and exciting.

I dont mind the look of the 2 ...seems like the front have a curvy smile . Since I've got the e92, I'm just wondering how long will I keep this since I bought it about a year ago.

In regards to the electric steering, I some how dont mind it. I feel it's really light yet it's really sharp in feedback! I dont mind having something for a change. Initially when I had the e87 now that was heavy steering! then e92 was abit lighter than the e87 and well weighted. First initial impression after driving the F series was hmmm too light but after having it for a day or 2 as a loan car I actually dont mind it as it's easy to park and steer in heavy traffic.
