Well think about race dashes like AIM MXL. The tach comes from both sides and meets in the middle.

If you don't like the tach I bet the HUD does it differently and you can probably order a steering wheel with tach lights.

Honestly I primarily use the hud tach on the M3. Could care less about the dash tach.

Is everyone getting the feeling that this M3 is more of a departure from the 3 series than previous M3s?

Yes indeed! You can almost see the whole left kidney including the frame and it certainly look separated with a vertical divider! And horizontal slats, unless those are just there to keep the camouflage from getting sucked into the intake.

The shifter screams more M5 style slush box.

That LCD display is awful! They always look out of place in an otherwise sporty and luxurious car

There's a lot of padding under the camo where the hood, lights and grill all meet. Look how sharp and clumsy those edges are, it's just not quite right.

I'm sure the grill will be large, but I also think that's just an aluminum ladder zip-tied under there just to throw everyone off. Would it really have horizontal slats?

Hope you can change the display in settings

Yes I believe that's what they're trying to accomplish. That's why the m3 will move to such different grills

Test mule looks better than production g20

The g80 test mule with the rectangular intakes looks better than the production g20 grill.

If the factory kept it just like that, the front of the g80 would be a design improvement over the g20.

X3M already felt outdated before it's even on the market just by looking at this

But u never know.

BMW: please either review your dashboard layout which is terrible: look at aircraft cockpits for some inspiration for clarity and purpose...
Or give your clients the ability to fully configure and with great flexibility what -they- want.
If you lack imagination: offer a retro mode with all previous M3 instruments !
Imagine this with an E30 layout ! Cool !

I really like your idea about have the option to have previous M3 gauges in a totally customizable digital display. Please BMW implement this awesome idea!
