No indicators, or wing mirrors, required.

Looks like one of those fish you buy to clean the tank.

It’s got stalks for rear view cameras and indicators could be in there as led strips.

Grill inspired by Bugs Bunny’s teeth.

Not a good look.

It is pretty nasty.

However BMW's do tend to get better with age, especially the modern ones.

The E60 5 series, the Z4 and 6 series all look good now where as they looked like dogs dinners when the came out.

I quite like the earlier 1 series too, where as I hated it when it was new.

The new fwd 1er offers a “modern driving experience”
But terrible proportions

I think it just looks ordinary.

Remove the grille and it could be any eurobox.

It looks like an SUV which has been lowered. The tops of the front wings and bonnet lines on modern cars look far too tall to me.

The bonnets on all cars except those with pyrotechnics like the Ftype are raised to give the required crush cap between the panel and the solid bits like suspension turret and engine block for pedestrian safety. Around 100mm of air and the give in the bonnet saves lives. You just have to compare the 147 with the Giulietta.

Looks terrible though, would have been better to dry-sump the engines and mount them 100mm lower.

Remember Honda were onto a winner when the rules first came in because of their low engine and lower struts.
