That was my first thought, but I think it's the same as the 330/325.

I have to see it in person.

At first i hated the 7 butt, now I like the whole car

Still not fond of the e60

I do like the e90, butt as well.

Yeah that rear overhang still looks big.

Based on pics in a previous thread where there was still some disguising going on I hoped that it wouldnt look as bulky. Unfortunatly, that isnt the case. I dont care for the dual exhaust either.

Fronm the b pillar forward I like it a lot...

That appears to be the new 3L turbo car, not the M3.

Ah....I was thinking "it is posted in the E90 M3 then he must be thinking it is an E90 M3"

I'll have to see it in person before passing final judgement, but I don't like it in these pictures. It looks a bit too long, and the back half has a very Mercedes CLK look to it.

What an ugly ugly design I'm glad I got my 05' while I had the chance

The M3 saloon better make up for it's looks with that engine.

M3 prototype pics?









From Leftlane News
"Yesterday we received a new spy shot of what is purportedly a prototype of the 2007/2007 BMW M3 coupe. While we cannot definitively guarantee the authenticity of the photo, we believe it is real. The image is believed to be of the new M3, as evidenced by the distinctive quad-tailpipes a feature only seen on BMW's "M" vehicles. Moreover, the car appears to have widened wheel arches. While it's difficult to determine from just one photo, this certainly appears to be the case. Lastly, there appears to be some type of camouflage on the front quarter-panel the exact location where BMW "M" cars usually have side gills. Given all these characteristics, we suspect this may be an actual M3 prototype, as opposed to a test "mule." If the vehicle was a mule, it would not have production-style wheel arches, nor would it have side gills. If this is indeed the new M3, then it goes against recent reports by Germany's Autobild magazine that indicated the M3 would get a unique body style. It's also unusual to see a prototype with so little disguise in testing at this time. While the release of the 2007 3-Series coupe (see spy shots) is imminent, the M3 was not expected until some time next year."

--------------------------------------------------------
Sure looks like it may have a CF roof like the M6--now THAT would be cool!

Cool

It's starting to take shape. I love the 6-esque roofline and the flared wheel arches!

I'm in!
