Ive yet to see any grill proposal look better than the current G8X grill. Unless were talking about the mini-M8 photoshops. But in that case why not just buy an M8?

Actually, I take that back. The GT3 grill (or lack thereof) with the single bar looks amazing.

this is become better and better.
the wide kidney grills gives it a wider look. the placement of the grill with response to the headlights is very natural (unlike LCI 7 series).
another good design is headlights are separate from kidney grills.
the relationship between the shoulder line and the fenders is better than the 4 series.

looks like hood bulge is saved for the M2.

This won't be popular and I hate the new grills on the M3 but these grills are almost too small and too traditional, say what you want about the g80 m3 but it looks modern - not a fan of the headlight design - eager to see the new m2.

I'm actually with you, to an extent. I'm fine with the grille we've seen on the spy shots, but if I had my choice I would like them to be just a little bit taller, or more angular like the 8.

I'm strongly considering the G42 M240 to replace my e92 and based on the proportions it might look TOO similar to the e92. I love the look of the e92, but do I want another car looks similar to the one I have now? I'll have to wait and see the final reveal.

Of course, but then you're stuck with the ZF 8HP.

Of course. That's what I'd want myself, especially if I keep my OG 6 speed as well. Either way but yeah good to know! Thanks.

Looks like the G42 2 Series will make its debut at the Festival of Speed event which runs from July 8th - July 11th.

Does that mean we can expect the full leak a few days before that?

Wheelbase still the same..? Hopefully with this new one they eliminated the bounciness this current last one had where it counted around a lot.

This one says 2731 between the front and rear tires. Normally the longer the less bouncing. The current/last generation 2 series was quite bouncy on the highways unlike the 3 series. I wonder if on the new one they increased the length a bit to help with the bounciness.

I think it looks fantastic! Perhaps the mirrors are too large and square but otherwise there’s real potential there

I will wait until I see it in person but it's a shame it's lost the BMW double headlights.

The lights remind me of a 2008 Audi A4.
