    • BMW M head confirms 2021 BMW G80 M3 design leaks are accurate - Manual and automatic options for RWD and AWD

      It is not a joke BMW played on us. The pre-production leaks of the G80 M3 front end with the huge vertical kidney grills and the rear end are indeed accurate as confirmed by the head of the BMW M division Markus Flasch.

      What you see is what you get.

      It is a shame the styling is terrible (hopefully it is better in person) but apparently there will be manual and automatic transmission options for both the all wheel drive and rear wheel drive versions which is a change from previous reports.

      Let's hope they deliver at least on this aspect:

      The nice thing about rowing your own gears? You do not have to look at the front of the car while doing it.

        Iím very surprised they are going to offer the AWD version with a manual. Iím even more surprised they are moving ahead with this terrible looking front end.

        I'll believe it when I see it. They may be throwing us a bone to alleviate some of the talk about the styling.

        Hmm. Looks like a horror movie.
