At any rate, the E90M and the E92M looked equally as aggressive, but the F82's proportions are really off. It's a little long and bulbous around the back, whereas the F80 looks properly muscular and taught. In terms of design -- and tapered, double-walled exhaust tips aside -- BMW designers really nailed the F80.
The bumper is graced with BIGASS GERMAN BUGS, LOL!!!

Hopefully not. The ones with the black centers and polished spokes, if that was not a trick of lighting, looked pretty bad - but that was only seen once. Usually when we see these cars the wheels are completely black or completely silver.

The ones on the visualizer (enlarged, below) have a more polished look than these, but have no silver - they're fully black and likely any difference is due to the render. I don't think we'll see any silver on the production black wheels either.

Probably the holes where the drilled in the hard camo to cover the curves...Just my guess. Or to cover for cooling testing.

You're probably right, though a lot of BMW wheels have both black and polished silver. The Style 220M on the E9xM cars, and Styles 343M and 601M on the F1xM cars come to mind.

I just love large doors and overall more space of the coupes. There is absolutely no room in my life for a 4-door car, unless it is an SUV.

Damn this car looks great

M4 looks absolutely terrible in comparison. I love the m3. Might change my order color to mineral white over alpine....

Yep- the fender flares were always meant to be a little obtrusive... they blend a little too well into the coupes rather large rear-end. The sedan, however, preserves that bubbly-fender, purpose-built look we've all grown to love.

And THAT is why I've been saying this car is a BULLDOG. Damn, this thing looks aggressive in person. Sweet!

Glad I was planning on the sedan anyway...... but that Mineral White is pretty sharp.

You can also see the black paint peeling or scuffed off in the first pic, I think they're just painted

I have seen recently a pair of M6 cars in both AW and MW colors. The AW absolutely is the brighter white that pops out more. The MW was more subdued and muted but still look good as well. This is the first good pic of close to the color combo I want for a M4 inside and out with wheels. Sticking with AW. It's going to be amazing though and the M3 does look good though.

I don't necessarily disagree.

Still, I would point out that if the this were a white coupe instead and the other thread had a Silverstone sedan with mismatched wheels, sunroof, and overcast sky, people would probably be saying the opposite.

Holy F me. Almost lost it on the first picture, car is mean!! But main difference with the F82 spotted is:
Lighting is flattering
Camera is obviously better
Has matching wheels
CFRP roof

So I wouldn't discount the M4 just yet

I've never owned black wheels so you might be right, but couldn't that be curb rash on black wheels? Certainly the base metal isn't black...
