    2007 BMW 2 Series

    This one came out very good (to me at least). Sized a little bit smaller than the 3 series, but larger than the 1, it would allow the 3 to move even further up market and let the 1 go even lower, into the 20k range. It would ride on the new 3's chassis, and share engines, but the M would be powered by the old 3's 6 cylinder. A sedan would be the only model offered, so not to infringe on the 3 coupes sales. I know that it looks fairly similar to the new 3, but I thought I would take the side-sculpting a little bit further and include the now infamous rear decklid. I also tweaked the BMW props a little bit to give them a more modern look.

    ENJOY!!! btw, any constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated.

    ahh, I kinda realized that when I was drawing it, but it is kind of a compact and it is a beemer, so it can get away with anything. (at least according to Car&Driver) lol

    Re: 2007 BMW 2 Series

    its not bangled enough...

    also, i feel like i'm just looking at a slice of the side of the car, that baiscally just got the 3" of material closest to the fenders. take a look at a modern car directly from the side, and you can see more than just the "sides" of the car. grilles are rounded, windshields too, and rears. your car ends at the hood and deck seams. (does that make sense? i cant think of any way else to describe it...)

    its interesting... if i just look at the roofline, and teh rear wheels back, the car look very good, and perfectly proportioned - but for a bigger can than a 2-series-sized car. the front, up to the windshield looks pretty good too. but then looking at the passenger compartment, it falls apart. what im trying to say, is that its a pretty good drawing, but the proportions are off. like maybe you started with a 3- or even 5-series, and only took the size out of the passenger compartment to bring it down in size, know what i mean?

    yeah, i see what you mean. in fact, i later put a 3series profile over top of my drawing on photoshop and the rear overhang on my drawing is actually longer than the one on the 3. I am going to work on a front & rear shot and hopefully have them up by tomorrow. thanks for the comments and I'll work on them in my future drawings.

    Kind of makes you think BMW is coming out with more numeric series type of stuff. First the 2 series, then 1 series, 4 series, 8 series, 9 series.

    The 2-series is supposed to be a TWO door version of the 1-series.

    Odd number = four door
    Even number = two door

    Except for the 3-series, which covers both two and four doors. (BMW was too scared of calling the next gen M3 an M4 instead)
