Hey guys I'm new here.

I have some Renders from the German magazin "Auto Test" and took some HighRes pics.

That's the best renders I've seen and I love it!

Thanks for sharing the renders. I like the design alot, love the back. I think the back is m-sport but front is regular. If you look at the latest spy pictures, the headlights are different, and the side mirrors seems to have some kind of led lights too.

Me Likey the front and back end of the car

Might start saving up money for the F30 M3 cuz at the rate this is going, that thing should look MEAN!

HOPEFULLY it doesn't cross $60k base msrp cuz that is just ridiculous.....not to mention unaffordable...

that back end looks great, not a fan of the leds on the front though but it doesnt look bad.
they definitely didn't take into account some of the details from the newest pictures of f30 though, but all in all it looks good imo

nice render looks cool but i can't see it looking like that.

Front end- headlights look crazy off, i hate the 6 series headlight look, i can't see signs of led's from spy shots. but i hope the design is close.

Rear- diffuser is way to big, even if you say mtech bumper can be way different, the spyshot shows tow hitch way low so no. backend overall is way too high.

just my opinion

The back is SWEET! Definitely first in line, they've really stepped it up.
A BMW can be described in one simple, yet true statement, "From the outside you don't understand, from the inside you can't explain." How true is THAT?!

ya they also dont incorporate the sqaured angel eyes, and the lines where the headlights meet the grill are totally backwards from the F-chassis so that cant be right ... i mean how did they actually get the stuff wrong that we can currently see in spyshots? haha seriously
