1- I hated this color in early pictures but it really does look sharp in raw pictures.

2- Taking a closer look at rear I believe that those are LED tail Lights for sure which is a relief. It would have been horrible to have a full LED lighting package in the front and incandescent lights in the rear on a 75K+ car.

3- A painted Reflector? dont think I have seen that before on a car. Is that even legal in the US?

4- The Black Rims really look awesome and it appears that they are a solid black in this picture as opposed to some of the official pics which show a combo of black and chrome. I do hope these will be the production wheels

Well at least you are right that YMB looks really good. We all knew that it was going to have DOT reflectors, so we shouldn't be surprised. As far as painted reflectors go, it is a common mod that all of us have dealt with. LED tail lights? As stated above, those are incandescent for sure. The window bar seems to be LED, but not the tail lights.

Looks like that car has CCBs, so those must be 19" wheels. I didn't think there was more than one 19" wheel style though?

So if you got SO paint then those reflector would blend right in? Ponder on that.

It's really annoying, even the pre-predecessor (E46 LCI) had full LED taillights, but they do it again.

As for the black wheels... well, I'm not a fan of black wheels since you can actually see nothing (told exaggerated), just a black emptiness in the wheelhouse (ok, with a caliper in it).

Surely it must cost BMW more money to INTENTIONALLY not go full LED by now..

You know what? I like those. Just yesterday I was saying this:

I wish BMW would use the same reflectors on the F3X and E9X. At least they look more integrated and less tacked on than they did on the E9XM.

I think those are just test wheels. We've seen the 19" black wheels already, and they just look like the silver wheels but with insets finished in black.

Mixed feelings about what I see here. While the rear looks cool with the bulbous wide fenders I'm not so sure about the slits in the bumper. It kind of looks like it's broken and weak and flapping around...hopefully just the angle and in this pic. Also are those really 275s, looks like the car needs 295s look wise if that is the case.

It's an M4, based on the CSL-style trunk.
