If you raise the brightness in one of the latest pics, you can clearly see a vertical divider in the center of the grill.

So many test drives to be schedule in the near future. One of the best and rewarding dilemmas to manage ...

Interior will look great. I am still hopeful that it will by like the evolve concept outside. That thing is amazing, and if we have the M8 to go by, I think it will be closer to sharing that grill with some hints of the i4 in it.

The 3D plate on the test mule is throwing things off.

I cannot see BMW making an ugly version of the 3series. It would be ridiculous.

In the render the of the G80 the grills are actually taller.

Lightened the shadows in this pic - interesting deisgn in the bottom left with the angular slat.


Very clearly appears to be horizontal grille slats - which seems ridiculous from a historical design lineage perspective.




There's also very clearly a plastic cover of some sort covering where the light connects to the grille - I would assume that we will for sure have connected grille to headlamp again.

Hood looks very similar to F80cs in these pics.

I see CF peaking out underneath, near the idrive control.

Hoping ‘pure’ has a manual handbrake.

They have their work cup out for them. I'm starting to see 330i's on the streets and I'm really not warming up to the rear end. I don't think quad pipes can change that.

why does dash plastic look so cheap? looks like old school hard plastic.
maybe they are doing this so more people pick the full leather option?

My favorite view so far...




Ahhh, those hippy, hippy hips. Now I hope I won't be horrified when the veil comes off her schnoz.

I've sat in the g20 it feels nice enough but I agree it looks like cheap hard plastic.

Ok, here I can see and vision 80% of the design as well how far down the grilles will go.

I can't wait. I hope it gets the new vision grill and I like to digi instrument cluster. I sat in a G20 and thought, this car is getting big.

There is no chance M is reverting to DCT now that they've been launching all the latest brand new models with the ZF8 auto.

It simply is the all-new M shifter already seen on the M8 Competition leaks and the X5M/X6M spyshots:

Honestly a big grill like that is getting me really excited about the G80 design. It will make the M more distinctive, and I love how it looks on the CSL homage:

This would be really cool but really hard to nail. Either it would look beautiful or completely gone. Like the Supra mk5 vs it's concept car
