The 3 door 1 series looks a little like a M Coupe! Albeit with only a fraction of the power! [:D] The rest look truely awful!

God just cause you have numbers spare, doesnt mean you have to use them!!!! 2 series??? Whats next the 10 series? :(

The 4 Series is next!

BMW are about to name all coupes / dropheads even numbers and all saloons / hatches odd numbers. The enxt 3 Series coupe will be the 4 series, and the 2 series is the 1 series coupe. Im almost thinking about considering becoming almost attracted to the 2 Series, it could work with the right wheels etc - has a hint of the Alfa GT about it. But the rest don't float my boat.

I think the 2 has something of a small 6 series about it.. If the style of the 6 series goes into the 4 series, then its time to start saving I think...

Holy smoke! Have BMW completely lost the plot? Have they become blind in Germany or something?

When the current 3 series is replaced there will no good looking BMW's at all. They are all fugly.

I think BMW sales will reflect the fact that their cars are not so desirable any more. Great as they may be, and as dynamically superior as they may be against the older BM's and current competitors, nobody will want to drive an ugly car. Think about how many 5 and 7 series BM's you see compared with their predecessors.

It will be a sad sad day when the whole range reflects the current designers inspirations. I am going to be interested to see how long it takes them to sack the lad responsible for these dogs dinners and update the entire range to make them look even half decent.

I love BM's but I would never buy one out of the current range.

I have to agree hjhorace here - all the new models are ugly, apart from the 6 and now that 2 series. If the 4 follows the same lines then it will be a stonker.

Seems the even numbers are set to be the lookers, and the odd numbers, well.... odd.

I really dislike the current design direction but I think the 2 series might be salvageable. Just had a quick play in Photoshop - M3 meets 6er?:

I like the 2 series, but the rest of them are just terible!

I think MikeDav's attempt at the 2 is good, but BMs attemp aint too bad!

Nice photochop skill mate.

I think the 1 cab and 3dr hatch will probably sell, but the estate and saloon are just hidious, the saloon has a whiff of the focus saloon about it, need i say more!

Does anyone else think that the back end of the convertable looks a bit like a MK3 Golf convertable?

2 Series definately has potential to look good.

Aside from the 6-series, these new radical designs do nothing for me; makes me even more content with my present M3 [:D] [/Schadenfreude].
