I hope the taillights look better in person. They remind me of the last Mazda 626.

Other than that, it looks great.

it definitely needs some rear-fender flare. then again, maybe it'll be there on the production version.

Funny thing is both of those rears were stolen from the 7 and 5 series designs.

Because the "Ci" badge is redundant and pointless and any idiot looking at the car in the flesh can tell that it has two doors and not four.

I think some of you are stretching, it looks nothing like the Accord coupe, except for it has 2 doors.

I mean if you look at any car this day it kinda looks like another car, give it a rest.

Missing front bumper. Bumper and front grill is now molded in to one which makes it look like pontiac. I like the front bumper to purtrude away from the grill a little.
I totally agree with what you say about the flared wheel arches and the purtruding bumper. E46 has it perfect IMO.
