BMW: please either review your dashboard layout which is terrible: look at aircraft cockpits for some inspiration for clarity and purpose...
Or give your clients the ability to fully configure and with great flexibility what -they- want.
If you lack imagination: offer a retro mode with all previous M3 instruments !
Imagine this with an E30 layout ! Cool !

I really like your idea about have the option to have previous M3 gauges in a totally customizable digital display. Please BMW implement this awesome idea!

Only just noticed the jutting out chin of the lower rear bumper, hope that fits in a bit better than it does under the camo

But
If the front grills look similar to this it'll be a huge sigh of relief. The current design sucks.

Are my eyes deceiving me or does it look like BMW is still using the Michelin PSS tire on the test mule cars? Makes me wonder why they aren't using the PS4S instead.

Must be to do w the responsiveness of the tire and ability to turn in. Correct me if I am wrong. Also BMW PLEASE do not make the grill ugly, make it like M8 concept please.

It is possible, even likely that the kidney frames and the horizontal slats behind the grill camouflage is another layer of camouflage but I hope not...I like the shape and I like industrial raw race car look of it...

Scott26 called it back in Sept. His sketch is dead on what can now be seen through the camo. It definitely has very tall grills, it almost seems nearly the full height of the bumper.

Very clearly appears to be horizontal grille slats - which seems ridiculous from a historical design lineage perspective.




There's also very clearly a plastic cover of some sort covering where the light connects to the grille - I would assume that we will for sure have connected grille to headlamp again.
Nice find on the angular slat. Lights are almost definitely going to connect to the grill.

I'm pretty sure these double bars we see underneath the camo aren't actual M horizontal double slats. They are set much more widely apart than the usual M vertical double slats:

We give you the first peek at the G80 M3's front seats, which look to be the sportiest factory seats yet in any BMW! As you can see, there will be cutouts in the seatback for a quick fit harness.

Looks very much like the AMG Performance Seats... which isn't a bad thing whatsoever.

They had to do it. Every time I see a C63 with the performance seats I thought to myself why the hell couldnt BMW do that for the M3. I'm sure I wasn't the only person that felt that way. Here is the answer. I'm very much feeling like I'm going to replace my 997TT with this car.

I love how everyone hates the grilles that they have never seen.
BMW seems to be going all out on the G80, the grilles could look great, when we finally see them.

Precisely! I mean those black and white AMG performances seats with the perforations are just downright fantastic!
