    2 series looks interesting. Although the millions of variants bmw has designed is a bit excessive, their realignment of series numbers should make it less confusing. Even numbers are coupes (this also explains the number change from Z3 to Z4 in addition to the 3/4 series name change), odd numbers are 4 door variants (except perhaps 1 series, which will likely be hatchback only?). Is the 1 series going to become hatchback only with the new 2 series? I don't see how both remain coupes.

    Going forward, it looks like:

    1 series - small - hatchback - 3 door
    2 series - small - coupe/convertible - 4 seater
    3 series - small - sedan - 4 door (with a GT variant)
    4 series - medium - coupe/convertible - 4 seater (possibly with a grancoupe variant?)
    5 series - medium - sedan - 4 door (with a GT variant)
    6 series - large - coupe/convertible - 4 seater (2 of which are double-leg amputees) (with a grancoupe variant)
    7 series - large - sedan - 4 door
    8 series - extra-large - coupe - 4 seater (still in concept)


    SUVs/Crossovers

    X1 - station wagon
    X2 - station wagon crossover (in concept)
    X3 - small SUV
    X4 - small crossover
    X5 - medium SUV
    X6 - medium crossover
    X7 - large SUV (rumor/concept)


    Then also Z4 and i series.

    I hope that dash is highly configurable.

    Needs a bigger tachometer.

    New Lexus RC-F pics are out. 480 HP V8. I much prefer the styling on this vs the new IS, especially the rear tailights (the IS tailights are hideous).

    Yep - same thought here. Overall, Lexus still wins the price for most boring car designs ever in my book.

    On TT interior:
    • Likes - Seats, manual transmission, clean/ low on button clusters, steering wheel
    • Dislikes - Angular-ish shape of dashboard, gimmicky turbine vents with integrated heater controls/ display, that display screen. Understand the sign of the times to go all digital and configurable, I very much prefer analogue instruments with needles flying around the dial.

    Interesting. I'd the the ability to tie certain dash display configurations based on what you're doing. If Nav destination is entered then select the first pic shown with the huge google map. If just putzing around town then have the speed gauges smaller, if on the highway, have the speed larger and tach smaller. If on a track then have the speedo and tach larger with info like oil temp etc more prevalent.

    Audi - spending their engineering budget on a fucking dashboard, completely ignoring the rest of the car

    BMW - engineering cars that don't actually suck to drive

    The new Lambo huracan or what's it's called has a similar dash.
