No matter how easy you make it to understand Moderators, people will still not get that its car is covered in magnetic 3D camo... combined with that 3D squishy foam stuff they use to make false creases in the car under the swirl camo.... sigh ~Frost

If the new M3/4 has the squashed front end with the smily face... I'll be looking else where.

I bet the F32 will be bigger, wider, but a bit lighter (depending on engine).
How does that sound?

I had an opportunity to see an F30 in camo earlier this month at the Western Region VDC in Oxnard, CA.

While some parts of the car might look like they're just covered in that psychedelic looking black & white wallpaper, every single surface of the car (except possibly the roof) was covered by a plastic panel which was screwed to the car with sheet metal screws and then covered with the wallpaper. Although it didn't look like it when a door was closed, when it was opened it was apparent that there was a plastic panel on it and there was a gap between the plastic panel and the door sheet metal that completely covered the actual contour of the door. This was the same on every surface of the car, including hood, trunk, bumpers, fenders, doors, rocker panels, etc. There didn't appear to be any actual sheet metal showing with the possible exception of the roof.

Bottom line, there was virtually no way that you could determine the shape of the car below the window glass as every bit of it was covered in fake panels.

Bingo! My thoughts exactly.

I know a spy photo is just that "a spy photo" the actuall details of the final car (mirrors, grill, lights etc. is hidden under-need) so we all have to wait for the final un-wealing of the final product.

I was hopping, however, something would be done with the rear bumper to hide the muffler. Being exposed like that is one thing I don't like about the e9x ///m3 and seeing nothing has changed in the new generation ///M3 / ///M4 is somewhat disappointing. Perhaps I worry too earley might it be deliberate the rear bumper and might it change on the final production ///M3 / ///M 4 ... let us wait and see
Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Life will take us to some interesting places, fortunately The ///M3 will too with a many of us know this very well
