Yeah and the 335 will probably have dual exhaust. But I do think that is an E92 M3 test mule in the pictures. I can't wait.

True, but they don't have such pominent wheel arches, nor do they have such wide rear rubber. Let alone the quad exhausts.

I'm glad nobody has started bashing it. Just from the pics I think it will be a smooth transition from the old to the new. It looks "safe". Start saving those ducketts! I'm getting me one...even if I have to put my wife on the corner....lol she'll understand.

I would'nt be surprised if the front side vents were similar to the new M6's. Also, one nice little detail missed so far...the molded-in trunk lip spoiler. Looks pretty clean.

I don't doubt it's an M3. Just replying that the 335i will have a staggered setup too (at least, the sport package will) like past 3ers.

Also, the current E46 M3 has 225 tires up front and 255 tires in the rear (across all three available wheel designs), compared to the E46 330i ZHP's 225 up front and 255 in the rear. The E90 330i SP has 255/35R-18 in the back too.

I've seen the coupe and not impressed - non-taped up version in BMW magazine. The rear-end is really long, and the front headlights, are very honda or japanese looking. The roll of the front fenders also look very Japanese. You can also tell that they're trying very hard to keep this coupe's looks further away from the four door. Also, the front headlights, in the "slits" rests two small xenons, but... hmmmm... we'll see. I will keep my hopes up. Sooo far, not impressed.

Of course you're not impressed, you don't want to sell your M3 and pony up the $$$$ for the next gen.

Ouch.

I love the 850-like rear end and the lines on the side.
