Camo is paper thin now. You can clearly see what the headlights vents will look like too. Also sporting the 826M bi color wheels which are my personal choice.

Maybe it's just me, but I'm actually starting to like the looks more and more. Can't wait for the official reveal!

This is definitely a different car than what we've seen so far. Looks like there's a sunroof and look at those wheels!

This one's got a sunroof.

The shape of the car is really looking good to me!

My only design concern is with the rear bumper and diffuser. Hope it's not terrible, but I've come to the understanding that the BMW design team will find at least one part of the car they will absolutely shit the bed on.

I'm with you 100%. The rear will make or break it for me. And I don't want to be forced into another black car haha

Those wheels might look okay, but also look like they would be both a pain - and painful - to keep clean...

Is it a sunroof or just the way the camo is applied?

Sunroof.

There's been videos of one flying around the ring with one.

Just why those headlights... why why why?!?

Once I realized they are single bulb on each side, my interest in the car took a huge hit. I looked at a G82, new 2 series and 1M side by side this weekend: quad lights, double lights, quad lights.. once I saw it I hated it.

Simple brake pad swap should fix that issue.

Sure would, but it's not simple like it use to be. With a floating caliper in the rear you need to completely remove it to install new pads. The fixed calipers on the F gen cars were simple, just remove pins and slide the new ones in, done.

Yes, with stock pads get ready for a ton of dust and a ton of noise the manual states noise is normal and to occasionally do some hard stops from speed to clean the rotors.

826m maybe the most sexiest wheel out there in the market.. i can't think of any wheels that even close in design in any of the cars. Maybe the Porsche spider wheels..
