Furthermore, I fully expect the F30 and F32 to look at least as different as the E90 and E92 do, and possibly significantly moreso. Coupling that with what I say above, I think we can expect the same to hold for the F80 vs. F82.
I doubt bmw will make 4 different fronts for the 3er (sedan, coupe, gt). The new M3 front looks more aggressive than the sedan, The reason why I believe the coupe will carry the M3 aggressive front is because it already happened for the E90/92 generation.
