Has anyone noticed the exhaust seems split up front, (I.e. bi turbo style) it looks like the downpipes or secondary cats are independent of each other

So i4 concept possibly, but on this I see two separate kidney grills and it just may be the camo support.

I am going to wait till final unveil.

Then see car in person, then decide if I like it.
That concept looks great but the thing is, its a concept, so the final look will never be able to be that sharp or sleek due to regulations, just look at the Z4 and 8 concepts compared to their production versions.
Umm

There's one exception, I'll give you that, but that was basically a production ready concept that fit all standards and regulations, the point was that the 8 series, Z4, and 3.0 CSL Hommage (in particular) are all concepts that don't work with EU and US regulations, (for example the 8 concept's hood and front fascia had to be changed in production (to be less sharp and angular) and other aspects were modified) meaning that the production version will likely not look 100% like the concept because it wouldn't pass regulations so aspects of it will be changed. I'm not bashing the design (not until I have seen it fully enough to judge it), but it would be hopeless to think that it will look anything close to the CSL Homage Concept

The back seems to finish nicely. only a peek of the lower boob cleavage. Front may just look like a beaver. I hope they do something nice w it. i4 concept does look nice. so now hard for me to imagine the front. Very disappointed that it does not really look like the Evolve concept.

I agree if it looks anything like the CSL homage it will be so bad ass. If you look at the close up of the grill and some outline its not very straight downwards.

Those may be aero slats we are seeing. BMW listens to their fans and I am hopeful. Even if the car ends up being a bit different than expected.

Am I the only one who hates both the i4 concept and m3 hommage concept ? Both grills are ugly as hell. I really don't want it to look like one of those...

Btw I like the grill on the new 3 series unlike everyone here. But I cannot stand the beaver grill

You are most definitely not alone. They both look absolutely hideous, and I'd vastly prefer the regular 3 series grille.
