haven't noticed anyone mention the tail light delete on the trunk.

imo it looks weird without the lights going onto the trunk but the shape looks like it has a built in spoiler?

hmm looking at it again seems like they have something covered... it might be a redesign that they're hiding.

also seems like the dual exhaust is going to stay (an artists speculative rendition of the 335 showed 328 style exhaust), maybe quads? the opening on the rear diffuser looks wide enough on both sides.

but of course since this is still the E90 body so the F30 might be completely different

Joe Public doesn't care what's under the hood, he will still buy them as long as they project "status" and brand image doesn't go south.

Of course that's just camo over the tail light. Look at the spy shots of the E90 LCI, they had the inner part of the lights covered to hide their new shape. They can't fully cover the lights because it wouldn't be street legal.

well...the shark fin is for radio and satellite. Im pretty sure there test vehicles wouldn't be equiped with unneccessary extras at this preliminary stage. I think the fin will stay, however maybe slighty changed to look more subtle

I'm wondering if it will follow the e-series designation... F30, F36, F46, F90... here we go again

What does the F mean in F35?

Also what does the E mean in E90?

If you had taken a few seconds to search, you would have quickly learned that the "E" stands for Entwicklung, German for development or evolution.

They've been using the Exx designation internally for decades and finally ran out of logically grouped numbers, so (I'm guessing) they just went to F and started over.

So something tells me I'm not the only one who didn't know this. Also you can't search with one letter, I think 4 is the least.
