BMW probably couldn't afford to make a mistake with its bread and butter 3 series. Glad it looks like it does and not like that crazy bugeyed 1 series hatchback.

Stop with the weight crap already. Get out of the past. The Honda product may weigh less, but has way less tech and features to them. Go drive a 335 and then an Accord and then say the same thing. If you want less weight, buy a 15 year old car with no tecnology or modern safety protection built in.

Same thing with Audi. Same sausage, just a longer length.

the rear end looks a little like a TSX or a GS300, depending on how you interperet the blur.

otherwise, looks pretty much the same.

Looks almost identical to the 5 series.

Not a pretty car, but their 3-7 series haven't been preety since pre-Bangle. The new ones are better than those dark years, but they all need a M body kit and wheels to be acceptable to look at. But nobody buys a BMW for the looks, they buy them for the badge and the way they drive (which I don't care for the newer ones in that respect, but I understand that many people do). Change the grill and they could be any number of cars, kind of generic, like they don't want to offend anyone. I guess they learned from the mess that the early i-drive and bangle designs created. They did succeed in making it look much bigger than it probably is, that should help them sell a ton.

In my opinion, the current 335 coupe is one of the nicest looking cars on the road right now. The car is fairly big yet the styling makes it like quite small. I really like it.
