And those sort of bbs f1 looking wheels look fantastic. I don't think I have ever used the word epic to describe anything really, but I almost feel compelled to do so regarding the next m3.

This could be a deal killer for me. Totally agree. Also, why don't the trunk lights line up on top? Why?

You are right! add to it the front hood line ....Dark colors would be best to hide these lines....

Are you serious? The line of the back doors on an M3 sportscar is a deal braker for you ?

Why are you considering an M3? For all I care, those doors can be square.

+1 and I'm thinking it probably won't be as dramatic of a transition in real life as it appears in the photos.

This.

I don't understand why people are complaining about the sharp transition from back door to rear fender flare. It's sharp for a reason!

I assure you, it wasn't an accident. It is indeed retro and very masculine, almost Supercar-ish in a sense. I actually think it makes the car even more aggressive. Sharp transitions in body lines such as this one are normally found on high end sports cars.

The same people who complain about this are probably the same people who still think baggy pants are in style.

The rear lights on most BMWs (except Bangle designs) have L shaped rear lights. It's heritage. I like that!

I agree, the rear door transition doesn't really bother me, but there's nothing supercar-ish about the ford fusion line running through the hood.

Look at image #8. Am I seeing things or does the door have some curvature before it meets the seam?

Yes, you can see it on many M3/M4 prototypes spotted already: http://f80.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=602770
