G80 is looking good! The hood bulges are definitely more prominent than what I was expecting and I like it

From the rear PDC sensors, the solo G80 from the Nürburgring appears to be painted in Portimao Blue.

It also appears we can kind of get a glimpse of the rear bumper reflectors on both the G80 & G82.

They do appear to be the final design as they fit nicely into the contours on the sides of the rear bumper a la F87.

Interestingly, the G80 seen testing in Southern Europe with the G82 appears to be an older mule based on the mirror design and the rear reflector placement compared with the solo 'Ring G80 and yesterday's spy shots.

Wheels seem to differ as well but that can also be due to specs that are yet to be determined.

I like the G80 more and more.
And I am sure with camp off will look even better.

The front of the new M3/4 is an accurate representation of a car if it were the year 2020

No way this will fail hot weather testing with nostrils like that.

M3 looks good, M4 not so much the grill and bumpers just don't work for it.

Still hoping neither have body-colored rear diffusers, and that the spy shots with it were from early unfinished prototypes

Revealing close-up of the G80 from the front. The hood bulge leading to the snout kinda narrows the prominence of the front end and makes the sides appear more pinched. It just looks.....wrong.

I am probably one of them. With some modes I do believe it can look very aggressive.

Personal opinion is that taking camo off will make it worse.

At the end of the day I just realize it's way too busy no matter how much I try to like it. There's no BMW in this at all

Agree too much going on with the slats, the plate, parking sensors and acc sensor, so much overlapping its visually a very heavy and cluttered design.

I suppose this is nothing new, here is Clarkson on the F82 release:

There’s another advantage to this. If the car is black, you don’t notice quite so quickly that the stylists simply didn’t know when the time was right to step away from the drawing board. Every detail is garnished with yet more detail, and the end result is fussy. The door mirrors are especially annoying. Possibly the company has done this to make the two-door M4 coupé stand out more from the four-door M3 saloon, but I’m really not sure it was necessary.

The performance will be so good, it will make up for the driver's looks as well

But honestly, I think the front end will look great. Once the camo comes off and we see it with paint, I'm sure most people will be singing a different tune.
