The reasons for the roof camo can be summarized in two points:
1) If you pay close attention to the spy shots, you'll notice the roof's "double-bubble" has a different design than what we're used to from the F80, F90, etc.
From certain angles, the two lines, bubbles, or whatever you want to call it are much more sharp and defined.



2) The roof is an M-specific body panel on the G80 and you'll notice that BMW has not taken the camo off of any panel or area that has a specific M design. So far, the strip tease is limited to the doors, windows, and partial rear quarter before it forms the flared wheel arches as well as a very small part of the hood (the actual hood design is still in camouflage). That leaves all the M3 specific design elements still unrevealed (hood design, side skirts, front/rear bumpers, trunk-spoiler, roof, front fenders/side gills, rear wheel arches).

Camo on the window to cover the window (options and pricing) sticker

The car looks so ordinary and has instantly aged. I don’t know - so torn. One always wants the shiney new thing but I’m not sure giving up a mint super low mile f80 in yas is going to be a smart choice. Maybe wait it out a couple more years

Rear lights look a little different on the black car. Maybe it's just the lighting in the shot?

Yes, and these appear to be the standard wheel for the base model car, so they would be the 18"F / 19"R combo.

These are so late stage that it can't be a production and prototype issue. I think the mesh ruins the look. Maybe if car has a track brake cooling package the vents are full open? Or maybe competition vs standard?

Appears to be some sort of Hockenheim Silverish imo.

These cars could be serving any number of purposes at this point. We are still months away from the start of series production.

Sure, it is absolutely possible that both of these bumper intake configurations will be available on the production model. But it is too early to conclude that with 100% certainty.

The E9x and F8x were plagued with horrible orange peel. I hope they've improved their paint process to elimate it.

Gxx generation are very big cars. I think here we have the 19'' rears and 18" fronts, they look very small on the car.

It has the better headlights vs the center car as well

Because it hasn't been revealed yet?

It's just part of the process...most if not all car companies more or less do the same exact thing.

The design is not aggressive at all, why? No widened fenders or anything.
