Proportions are awful.

I think the rear is how the X6/X4 should've looked instead of trying so hard to be a coupe.

It does look odd, the camo might be hurting the final product perhaps. I photoshopped an X2 last year, feel the roof on the actual car will be less like X4/X6 and more 1er hatch in style. shame

BMW really are masters of the "almost" production car that looks quite cool and sexy ...... only to produce a vehicle that is watered down to the point that all the pizzazz has totally gone.

When I saw the X2 Concept I thought finally BMW have rediscovered their mojo ...... but this production car looks like a facelift X1.
This together with the duller-than-ditch-water new X3 will sell I'm sure of it but it really is a missed opportunity...... and this is certainly not BMW's "Evoque" moment.

Lets hope the 8 Series isn't equally watered-down...... but I'm afraid it will be.

Of course it will be, the front is already in a different position than the concept in the prototypes.

I find the patent drawing attractive. It's not game-changing for style, but it does seem to have a pulse.

The lower bumper bothers me. It looks like a 90's throwback. The rest is ok...nothing more

The lower bumper design isn't exactly pretty, nor is the "cladding" attached to the base of the doors. Otherwise it's decent enough.
