    I agree it looks good so far. Lately I have not been a fan of BMW's styling...the "all our cars always look the same styling because it works"....but this looks different and promising.

    For some reason this car reminds me of a C4 Corvette.

    All debuting within the past two years, the latter two debuting within months of eachother, I think at least shows them trying to diversify their design a little.

    It looks very generic from what we can see, almost like any mid 1990's GM sports car.
