    X4 Camoflauge

    I'm in Munich on business and happened to see this X4 prototype testing near the BMW plant. Odd that it would still be in camo since they intro'd the X4 28/35 a couple months ago, but even more odd is the dual exhaust out the rear. As best as I can tell, that is new for the X4. Could it be an X4M in testing even though BMW said they weren't going to build one?
    @Sticky - feel free to watermark these bimmerboost.

    A couple other interesting things that I saw (but wasn't able to take pictures):

    -A camoflauged i8.
    -A new Mini Cooper S in full camo.
    -Some sort of E36 318i-looking F32 hatchback in full camo.
    -What I believe to be a .5 RS7 in camo - it had oval pipes on the back.

    Lots of fun cars running around in Bavaria. I also went on the BMW Munich Plant tour. It was awesome. They wouldn't let us take pics, but it was neat to see where my car was born. They are also pumping out a TON of F82s in Phoenix Yellow (is that what they still call it on the M4?).

    @richpike what was the reason you couldn't get shots of the other cars?

    @richpike btw good work. I would watermark these but since the car already made its official debut... you understand.

    Yep - I just thought since it might be a X4M (dual exhaust that the current released ones don't offer) it might be more interesting.

    Now you are onto something. Do you have any more pics or is this it?

    It looks like the bodywork is different as well. Do you have any possible 'inside' info that this may be an X4M? We need just a little substance behind this and this could be an epic article. I don't want to do what others do and just throw something at the wall and hope it sticks.

    Hmmm - perhaps that was the new X6:http://www.topgear.com/uk/car-news/b...-2014-06-05But the pics I posted don't appear to have the slit behind the front wheel (that the new X6 has) and the exhaust is definitely different between the two. -Rich

    I'll take a closer look. It appears you are right.

    I took another look at this @richpike and it looks kind of small doesn't it?

    I'm torn. Some pieces make it seem like the X6. Some don't, which makes me think X4M. So I'm honestly not sure.

    Post 'em back up with Bimmeboost watermarks and let the community investigate and decide.
