Autobild showed that feature aswell because it was put forward to distinguish the cars further but rejected at the last minute.

Bar the missing rear reflectors and the M5/M6 wheels it is overall an exact rendition of the finished car.
BUT the exhaust position isnīt correct ... normally the M3 has its exhaust pipes located more in the middle ... like shown on all spypics ... on the CAR rendering they are more like the M5/M6 ones ... Right ???

That probably an misunderstanding ... the meen B38
