Car Magazine claims F80 M3 photoshop as real deal

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Car Magazine claims these are real, but that's dubious considering their misrepresentation before about having the official E92 M3 photos, which turned out to be just a photoshop. The F80 M3 image even just uses the mirrors from the E90 M3 in the render.

Car's E92 M3 render which turned out to be inaccurate:

It's not exactly accurate since the shape of grilles and intakes is slightly off, but it gives a good idea how it will look.

Thanks, I will have to pick up a copy.

8-spd DCT?

Wish BMW would go back to SMG without the crap auto mode a la Lamborghini. Seriously. Nice clutch drop and kick in the head at redline.

Even though I'm a big fan (and subscriber) of CAR Magazine, their renders are usually pretty off the mark.

As an example, below you will see their render of the Ferrari 458. I also added the real one below for comparison:

I wouldn't be upset if it did end up looking like that.
