    Ummm, this is pretty much the 1-Series coupe, they just renamed it a 2-series so this is nothing new.

    And the 1M is arguably one of the best drivers car made, people still rave and crazy for them ever since they stopped making them.

    Right so isn't that the new game plan

    1 Series = 4 door
    2 series = 2 door (old 1 series coupe)
    3 series = 4 door
    4 series = 2 door (old 3 series coupe)
    5 series = 4 door
    6 series = 2 door
    7 series = 4 door

    and i thought there was talk of like a possible 4 door 6 series with some "Grand Touring" tag or something.

    4-series is getting a grand coupe like the 6-series, which just seems redundant since the 3-series is already a damn sedan. :lol:

    Not to be confused with the GT that has an ugly and confused look.

    Also, the 2-Series looks awesome... The 3/4 series has gotten too big and 80's 3 series look like sub compacts in compression...

    I like it too, it looks less of a bathtub like the current gen, then again I've always preferred small compact sport cars.

    repped for the updates i remember hearing it in passing

    does seem a little redundant to have a 3 series with 4 doors and a 4 series with 4 doors. I wonder how they will differentiate design

    Welcome to the world where people think purchasing a car is broke

    It should look like a smaller and short 6-series gran coupe, key words are "it should" but from the spy shots, it is a bit hard to differentiate from the current 3-series. It's hard enough to differentiate a 3-series from a 5-series at first glance, now they are making another similar looking one that I do not even see anyone demanding for. They should have made the back more of a fastback.

    Contrary to NT logic, small cars are not just for broke people who want to stunt for IG likes. Large cars/trucks can be overkill. My girlfriend has a Fiat 500 and it's really good for city driving because it can dodge potholes easily and fit into small parallel parking spaces. The Fiat isn't bad, but if you want a more "luxurious/prestigious/exclusive" small car then these smaller BMW's and Mercedes vehicles are just right.

    I think BMW has gotten confused with their own damned number scheme.

    Don't even try and explain logic to some of these dudes.

    In their mind it's M3/M4/M5/M5/760Li ONLY!

    Everything else is simply badge flossin.

    Not a fan of the new numbering scheme, but that's no matter. This car looks great and more importantly should drive wonderfully. Im certainly eager to see more.

    Lol cosign that. The guys that subscribe to that philosophy are typically the guys that are barely keeping there head above water trying to afford the payments anyways.

    I'm a die hard BMW fan and I love what they are doing with it...reminiscent of the days of smaller BMWs like the E30 and the E36, true driver's cars
