Nice find. Could just be angles but now in these the rear fender flares look less than F80.

Do we think this is a $5k individual option?

Doubt it. On the Z4 the frozen grey is a £1500 paint if I recall. Again from dodgy memory I think 2 or 3 frozen have been mentioned for the new M3/4 so I'd expect them to be semi individual prices too.

Don't mean to thread jack, but I'm adding the M4 here. Seems to be the same color/colour.

I'm starting to fall for this weird looking thing ... I told myself I wouldn't.

Yes the car is going to be HUGE in size, not just the grille. I can see reviewers mentioning how you can feel the weight of the car, etc.

If you do not like the size of an M3, you can go buy an M2 and post in the M2 forum rather than complaining about the size of the M3.

If anyone wants to know the size off the G80 - Go to any dealer and look at the new 3series. That is the exact size, more or less, without body kit of the camouflaged G80.

Most reviews have been very positive of the new 3 series feeling agile and light....and to this point the G80 has gotten glowing reviews in comparison to the previous gen.

I'm thinking it's the camo and the angle combined. It is so easy for them to just widen it a 1/2 inch and make us all happy. They'd be foolish not to do so as it really separates the F80 from its competition.

Well I'm not the only one complaining about the size of these cars, kinda like how you always complain about lack of manual transmissions. The problem is that the 2 series is also growing bigger.

Noticed this G80 has the "base" headlights since the DRLs are not the "full" outlines like we've seen.

Rear fenders in these 2 pics are disappointing

Edited with f80/2 in comparison

Hmm so what/why has this changed? The rear fenders in all the mule shots up until now have had really aggressive, wide rear fenders. This looks like a G20.
