Interesting, given the separation between the kink and the rest of the 'shadowline' trim looks like the upper trim is part of the window now instead of the door frame.

So far so good. Can't wait to see what other "leaks" happen before the official reveal next week.

Cant wait to see the new 3 series, especially if it looks like a mini 5, when is the Paris show?

I prefer the trim as part of the door like in the F30 but I guess I'll just have to get used to it

Wow! It looks amazing! Kink is awesome! Wheels look fantastic, bumper looks great! This has to be the M340i version.

So maybe this means that they have finally fixed the dreaded door frame squeaking on M-Sport models with the shadowline trim? Only the cars/trucks with the shadowline trim on the door frames (not part of the door/windows) make the squeaks. I hope so.

Love it. Looks like you'll have to order it with a blacked out grille, as it does not look interchangeable anymore.

I also see an active grille!

Judging by the chrome grilles and body color mirrors (same car in production teaser w circular pipes) I think this might be the 330i m sport.

Anybody else notice the trunk design? Looks more like a coupe design for a trunk. I dig it!

Air curtain breather designs are just that on X3 X4. Non-functional design elements.

Wasn't a deal breaker for me but I wish they were functional still.
