I agree with the flared intakes, as that seems to be the current design language that BMW is employing in cars like the F10 M-Sport, the F10 M5, the 1M, and others.

I don't agree with keeping the headlights identical to the F30. History has shown with the E46 and E9X M3s that BMW has not made the headlights identical to their non-M sedan equivalents (i.e. the F30), so giving the lights their own unique flair in this render is the right thing to do. Of course, who knows what that flair will actually look like.
