  • Aurum Dust was a stage name. It's official name is Austin Yellow
  • Only the CF roof is standard. We now know other CF parts like the lip, the tailpipes, and the diffuser are M Performance parts
  • We didn't know there are also other CF parts hidden under the hood (CF brace in engine bay, or were there spy pictures of it?) and under the car (CF drive shaft)
  • We didn't know how exactly the M3 would look like until December 2013
  • The Concept car had black kidney grill surrounds, and black side gills. Production cars come with chromed ones
  • The Concept car's pictures had similar large wheel gaps that we have in production cars today
  • Could we have told, from the undercarriage pictures, that the rear suspension was bolted directly onto the chassis?

What did I miss or mix up?
Aurum Dust is actually a different color entirely than Austin Yellow.
