Woweeeee..... this i like!

Got very muscular bonet rake..... and the front airdam has a lot of E46M3 blood! The wheels add to it too.
I guess we shall wait to see the dreaded rear!

You know one bad thing abt the cars in today's time? The people who create such visions / photochops have a great vision but end of the day when cars go in production a lot is removed

One thing why i like CLS so much is identical to it's vision very close besides the grill and coloured buttons on the inside...
Another thing i'll look up but BMW mite come up with a supercar Z10

Look out for me lol... Im what u call a pure germancar lover!!

i hate bangled beemers. it's too organic and lacks the classiness and restrained aggression of the earlier beemers. the headlight casings are gettin weirder. moreover the traditional bee-em kidney grilles are gettin wider and wider.......seem like ones on pontiacs.

Okay I have to admit, I really really like the front end of this car. Even the muscular sides are awesome.

Surprised? I am too.

GTO

P.S. Does it not resemble the 3 series a whole lot?

This car looks awesome front the front..what a presence it has..wow...but i saw a pic from the back, its kind of a let down, but then again if they were to launch this in a hatch back, I would say it would become one of the best sellers in its range..

but overall an A- (removing the + cuz of the back)

Cheers..

WOW!
Great looking car there! muscular front even the kidney grille which was getting wider and bigger seems to be toned down. DUnno about the rear but from the front the car looks wow! Easily one of the best looking beemers!

A second thread on the M2 was merged from this point onwards - Moderator.



I recently picked up an Automobile issue especially for the upcoming M2.
The M2 is a solid,rear wheel-drive,that goes back in body n spirit to the 2002-series of the 1960's n 70's.
BMW will attempt to keep the cost to below $35K n if they do so n place a 3L,300bhp I6 engine(which looks logical for the M2),the M2 is gonna be a perfect storm.
The M2 will not be equipped with xpensive goodies like Active Steering,Dynamic Drive Control,Electric Damping Control,& xDrive/4WD but the rear wheel drive M2 is gonna reinvent driving pleasure.
Here are a couple of pics,so guys what do u think of this car??

Like it, they've removed that middle pillar in the front bumper which looked horrible on the 6 series. Given it a bigger lower body with sporty looking a,b,c pillars and roof.

Though it has a bit of a "Z" series touch to it, it does look good.
