No wonder my F80 is very stiff when their "bad surface" development road that they've showed in the video has basically no potholes or undulations.

Most likely old footage, however wishful thinking could be contingency plan/backup option. Product launches often have "Plan B" in the early prototype stages. Here’s to Plan B!

It will definitely perform well on the track as drivers in front of you will glance in the rear view mirrors and loose control as they're vomiting uncontrollably at the sight of the front end.

In a years time, everyone will love this unique grill... not the old one from the video, but the actual one. Once the knee-jerk reactions are over, it should be evident how stunning the car is. My prediction, for what it's worth.

I think there is no chance we'll get the M3 without the beaver teeth. There's a lot of parts that don't belong in an M3 on that mule, for example, the seats. It looks like all the relevant parts are well hidden.

A pity.

Versus the one in one of the most recent spy videos.
In the video it showed two different vehicles with these two rear ends so the "newer" mule was in the video as well. Interesting they only showed that front end. This is tremendous trolling by BMW if the M3 comes with the enlarged grills.

I agree. Remember the original vs revamped LCI taillights debate on the F80? :

It's sarcasm. Of course, everyone is interested in motor and technology. But the body design worries everyone to a greater extent.

Looks like regular 3 series grill on top, but if you look closely at 1:27 mark, it clearly shows split grill on lower section like new 4.

I think I see some major wheel gap. Possibly due to xDrive? Ruins the look in my opinion.

I can't believe that there are actually still people who think that the M3 will not get the big grill. Do you actually know what an effort is invested in the construction and qualification of a front bumper. It would be far too expensive to offer different front bumpers for the two vehicles.

The vehicle shown in the video is clearly an older test vehicle which does not have the final bodywork components.

Don't get any false hopes and try to get used to the new look. At least the BMW models are now more different again, not like Mercedes or Audi.
