A couple of points on the test mule:

1) It's clad in quite a bit of camo, which is going to add visual bulk to the body. For example, the front and rear clip are completely hidden.
2) There appear to be a few things on the mule specifically placed to throw off the sense of the real design including: false "frames" around the window, false "pillar" on the rear window glass, and a camo piece over the rear window glass to conceal the true sweep and placement of the Hofmeister kink.

A few points on the render:
1) The area aft of the rear wheel looks too elongated relative to the mule, even accounting for the body cladding. I'd expect a slightly sharper sweep down to the trunk line.
2) The render has a typical B-pillar and window frames, but if the 4er follows the 6er, I'd expect frameless windows.

Overall, I think the render looks pretty good. Just need to throw the M-sport front clip on that bad boy!
