Lolz, that's what I was thinking. It has a Mustang-y profile to it, but its probably cause the way the camo covers the rear quarter.

+1 to the Mustang comments. I hope this looks better when we get to see a picture of the final car.

Thats what I see also.

F32 looks very bulky. Looks like a muscle car at the side profile.

Doesn't look as sleek as the e92, as it has gotten way too fat.

hmm, looks like a first prototype test mule of the new F32 which means nothing at all because um.. its a test mule, im sure this will change alot through the devolopment stages. we cant judge it yet. im sure the wheels will change too and yes the tail lights are fake, they put them on the car over the actual camo lights. anything else?

I don't think this looks good. For sure I agree that's a new Mustang version or new G37...
In fact, we can't see tht much. Back side windows looks like a GTR's os Maserati's in firt pictures, but a last we cam see something like the last CLK. Looks only ok. that's not what I expect from BMW.

agreed. e46 m3 was the best looking, but imo the worst driving. i like the characteristics of the e36 and e92 more. The e46 steering always felt a bit light to me.

i think it looks sporty, its nice to see BMW make a progressive model instead of living in the past and making the same old thing just to please a minority of people who cant stand change but finally except it after all. i like rollercoasters but this just makes me

the glasshouse behind the b-pillar and the rear overhang looks huge. The car needs to be shortened by a few cm and the rear window should slope downward a bit more.

You just prooved the camouflage works. Why would BMW put all this stuff on a test mule only to clearly give away the final design?

It is supposed to look like anything else than a F32 in testing.

Lets wait and see how it unfolds.

for those complaining about the size, get a 2 series!

who didn't see this coming? 6 series is now like the old 8 series, like driving a 2 door 7 series! it really is inbetween a 5 and 7 in size, so that means the 4 series is going to be inbetween the 3 and 5 series in size and I think closer to the 5. The 2 series will be inbetween the 1 and 3... The M2 is going to be the next gen M3 (not the M4), but everyone is going to have to get used to it having under 400 HP again. My guess is the M2 will have around 360HP but be 0-60 in close to 4.2 seconds because of the weight. M4 will have 450 HP turbo and be faster in a straight line but not on the track!

I will be getting an M3 Sedan (you know, typical family sedan), so I don't care about either

with each unveiling/spying, BMW keeps telling me they peaked aesthetically with the pre-LCI E92.

It looks promising to me. I can already tell that its going to be more aggressive looking than the E92 LCI.

Personally I expect the same growth with the 4er coupe/convertible as we saw with the F30 compared to the E90 (with the same drop in weight).

However, we can't tell a thing until at least the FEP stage starts. So I will be reserving my judgement for that.

Can't wait to see M4 prototypes out & about.

Take it easy guys. It's an early test mule that is heavily camouflaged, so it's not going to look like the final product just yet.
