Imagine if the first M3 prototype leak was a drawing on a napkin:
"What?? The next generation M3 will be made out of paper?? That's it, I'm moving onto Porsche!"
While I agree with you, I do think some leaks are intentional to gauge basic reactions. For instance, if a photo were leaked and the public was unanimous in its dislike for the hood design, then I am sure BMW will take those reactions back to their designers to see if design changes should be made.
