I think the Vorsteiner hood bulge looks better. The lower portion of the rear bumper and side skirts have too much going on. Someone get me a file so I can smooth those sharp edges underneath. If a Cayman-S is sexy, curvaceous, elegant and easy on the eyes, this new E92 M3 concept takes you the opposite direction by increasing designy entropy.

I don't want to sound like I'm hating on the M3 concept car.

2. I love the CF top, and overal,l like the car. Yet, it seems like the designers got a little crazy with their design.
I agree with ksfrogman's critique regarding the hood. The hood and hideous vents are just plain wrong for this car. BMW designers need to rework this with a "bulge" and vents that compliments the overall design, not detracts from it (maybe extend and incorporate the "gill look"on the hood) . I already sent an e-mail to BMW complaining about this. I hope enough enthusiasts who feel the same way let BMW know as well. Maybe we can influence a design modification before it's too late. Get you're e-mails out today!
