See on this one I am not agreeing with most of you- they are not testing the body on this car- it is the underpinnings so that is why it is different.

Read what Scott is saying- this is NOT an ordinary 3 series sedan. The GT body has not been approved or even designed so obviously they are not testing that part- they are testing the drive line, ride height of something other model as this is significantly different than the xDrive versions currently testing in the arctic and different than the rwds out and about.

The drive train and suspensions are often designed before the actual body- the reason we saw an E91 testing X1 components, a yellow bus testing the MINI Countryman etc., this is a mule of something else than the body suggests.
