Indeed, but that means less lip on aftermarket wheels.

And the overall size of thewheels looks bigger too.

Let's just hope that these wheels just have nice offsets and that BMW isnt taking the Audi route where the hubs are pushed further out. The S4 guys cannot even imagine a +22 offset wheel without a fender roll...

The wheels are from the BMW X3.

About the mirrors...
It is true we have kept our independence in avoiding the current trend to display the side indicators higher and free from the body of the car.
Unfortunately there is forthcoming legislation both in the US and Europe to have side indicators that are higher and more visible to oncoming traffic especially in poor weather conditions.
The change is in aid of safety.

The F10 DOES have LED tails, wish BMW would move their whole lineup to LEDs.

looks promising...i would like to see in this model a 2 liter twinturbo diesel engine that produces about 230-240 hp and a very cool, without lag dual clutch transmission keeping the fuel consumption under 5 l/100 km..that would be very nice...

love the hooked indentation near the front wheel fender walls. looks macho. and is it just me or is the first rendered pic's side indentation parallel with the windows, and not so much in the second pic?

You act like that's a bad thing... TSX is frickin gorgeous.

F30 will blow the 90 series out of the water... it goes back to traditional simple uncontroversial BMW design philosophy's. 1/2 of us e46 owners are waiting for it.

I am one of them, though so far what I see with the new 6-er chances of me dumping the E46 are low. If the new 3-er manages to stay in the 3200lb range with the 4-cyl turbo engine, I might give it a serious thought.
