Question Really? Looks EXACTLY the same to you?

I guess we can use your link and compare side by side. Point out what I thought was obvious. The only panels that are the same are the doors and hood. For starters the front and rear bumpers are from the 1M coupe, the side sheet metal as well. From the front you should notice the headlights and kidneys are very different(borrowed and modified from the X6). The taillights borrowed from the new F20(only available in 5door currently). Also, the fender flares should be quite obvious from the rear view. I exaggerated them even more than the 1M coupe's.

So, I never claimed it was 'revolutionary' or anything. But it is a design I would be interested in. A 4seat, 2door, hatch more closely related to the original 'Mcoupe'(Z3based).

You still 99%certain they are 'EXACTLY' the same?
