    Car Magazine states this is exactly what the F80 / F30 M3 will look like - Renderings based on visit to styling studio

    Car Magazine makes pretty bold claims and they do so to get attention and sell magazines. They tend to go more the National Enquirer route especially with things like these renderings. They did this before when the E92 M3 was coming out saying their pictures were 100% accurate but they were not 100% accurate. They were close enough though and based on BMW's recent styling language and concepts the real deal should not be far from this.

    Is it exciting though? Sure, it looks better than an F30 3-Series it just feels like it is missing a hint of aggression. When the E46 M3 hit with its power dome in the hood it looked mean. When the E92 M3 was revealed the design evolved and it was more aggressive. This just feels a bit too mild.

    We all just have to wait for the real deal, enjoy the renderings.

    The front view looks good!! Imagine with black grilles! Badass!

    The side and especially the rear views are less exciting though.

    Is it just me or is the front a lot wider than the back in these pictures?

    Perhaps the M4 will be more aggressive than the sedan version. This rendering shows some pretty conservative styling.

    It just looks like a smaller M5 with a CF roof & that stupid side blade. The front bumper is probably the "most aggressive" design element of the whole car

    Doesn't look bad... just doesn't look like it will be worth the $+80K they're going to cost.

    Does the front bumper go all the way to the hood, around the kidneys, or is there two pieces?

    looks like it does in between the kidneys

    looks a bit flimsy/finnicky though?

    The E-Chassis M's were true M Engineering -- I cannot argue with the performance potential that the new turbos motor offer, but they're not "M cars"

    It's missing flared fenders and a real M stance, this render sucks, no way it's accurate.

    I agree, the fenders need some widening, this almost looks like a "M Special" 3 series (or whatever they call it) as opposed to an M3. I also am not liking the strange creases near both headlights - it almost looks like it was a mistake, but they said "oh well, it's symmetrical... that's good enough - we're just going to give them a tuned N55 anyways" Click here to enlarge

    In all honesty, it's not that bad - and it's hard to see what a car will "really" look like until it's seen in person. A good example is the Panamera - a lot of people didn't like the car when viewing photos, but their thoughts change when they see it in person.

    I just hope the engine, although FI - will be as good as they were in the past... I know it's nearly impossible to kill all of the lag - and get the same responsiveness, but one can wish. They do this and I don't care what the hell it looks like.

    This is funny. You're all forgetting something. This is just a rendering. I am more inclined to seeing this car being a mini M5.

    theres no way they put those rims on it and have the same rims across m5 m6 m3 m2 etc.... also if you did just flare the rear more like all m3s have been it would look much better.

    Yellow isnt doing any good either.
