If BMW followed MB's route in which a C class looks like a miniture S class, this design could've made the rest of the line up SOOOOOO much more desirable

Weirdly enough, it's competitors are equally as good looking.
I think so too, it's very sharp looking.

It makes me think to skip on X6M but I need SAV for kids.

No problem, E63S Wagon can do everything the X6 M can, but better...

Or you could get a sweet RS6 wagon, either way, Wagon >>> SUV

Nope. There are 3 variations of this depending on which country the vehicle is being produced for based on country regulations.

I dont know which countries they specifically apply to but below is limited summary

1) US - no rear wheel well plastic
2) UK (or at least some parts of Europe) - short (~2-4") strip near 10 o'clock position
3) Some other Euro / Asian countries - long strip seen in the above photos.
It actually has to by law in the USA if the tire sticks out a certain point from the wheel arch. Rs3's have a small piece in the back in the USA. As well as my buddies RCF

Like? Mind naming some that have the same or superior luxury?

My hope for the forthcoming 4-Series was this! Not the pig-nose we got :

Nothing like that on any BMW in the UK, it's a left hooker anyway...

Overplayed since X5M/red interior. We call it old man gray at our neck of the woods since every geriatric bought this color for their X5M and m5. I went with marina bay blue.

When OTT Makes Sense

An example of a big grill that sits well with the design. The proportions look right and the front end makes a statement.

I hope this car does well. BMW need to be rewarded for making cars the enthusiasts ask them produce.
