Here's what the radical G80 M3 will look like! BIMMERPOST renderings

Here's what the G80 M3 will look like!

Here's what we think the G80 M3 will look like based on insider info and our analysis of the spy photos!

Back in March, BMW insider Scott26 confirmed that the G80 M3 and G82 M4 will share front ends featuring larger and taller kidney grilles -- a la BMW Vision Dynamics Concept.

Recent G80 spy photos have also revealed the expected radical new front end and kidney grille styling. Here's a tracing of the styling cues seen through the camouflage (by member Mii).

Based on this, this is what we predict the G80 M3 will look like!

This will annoy dinosaurs.
A huge change. Possibly the most drastic design shift since the transition from E30 to E36.
I think it's great. Way more character than before. You would know this is a Bimmer from a mile.

This might be unpopular, but overall I like it. This is less offensive to me than extra wide grills that go up onto the hood like the 7 series.

Wow. I hope BMW will do something better looking. That grille is not doing it for me at all.

I don't know what to think. On one hand I think it's an improvement over current M340i grills and has a more aggressive individual look but on the other hand it seems too busy with all the hard lines front and back. I loved the days when an M car was more a sleeper that if quickly glanced at would be mistaken for a base series. Makes me think of this ha

agree to disagree - I feel like if you're paying the big bucks for an M car they should have some sort of presence as opposed to the standard version. Also another reason why people modify their M's to make them further more aggressive.

Like Mercedes does in Germany, maybe offer an option where the M bumpers can be replaced with more "standard" looking ones to blend in with the non-Ms.

I'm not sure what to feel about this render yet. Part of me is interested but I don't like the horizontal slats - they should remain vertical.

So its an Audi grill split in half??? I wouldn't mind tall kidney grills except for the fact that a front plate will look absolutely awful w/ this, but for those of u w/out front plates I'm sure it will look better.

I'm still warming over it, but its not too bad, I do wish it would be just a tad shorter and not go higher than the headlights, but the M3 will definitely stand out now! No longer understated.

Oh please. That thing looks terrible from the front and only Audi can pull off that top to bottom grill and have it look good. If this is what it looks like then I guess this will be the first time I will not have at least one of every generation m3/m4 since the E30. The e63s or M5 comp are looking pretty good right now as my second car. BTW, I fully expect the m4 to look like a baby m8 and that will be a good thing.
