They're not mirrors. They're cameras.

Isn't it a paradox that the new G35 coupe and Nissan Skyline GT-R will be distinctly different cars come '08 or '09? Currently, the G35 and Skyline are the SAME car. Skyline is marketed in the US as the G35. Choice between the two? Skyline all the way.

I would hardly say an M3 is the king. The M3's potential is limited compared to that of a R34 Skyline GT-R. The R34 is in a class of its own, that car has unlimited potential.

I honestly haven't seen anything incredibly "innovative" from BMW, especially the iDrive. At first I thought it had major potential and then I've seen other cars in the class, Acura TL for one, which is a lot nicer, and the new G35 Sedan, lightyears ahead of BMW's iDrive..

Does it come with the bowl of rice?

Ah, nice but the lights are "too much".
Also, is that a back seat? It is more competition to the Z4 than the e92...

They may claim it costs $6k less than the e92, but it also comes two seats short from the e92...

Between that (even if it turns into production) and 335 -- Bimmer wins.
GT-R vs. M3 --> M all the way...

that "idrive" controller is mounted too high.

the shifter looks like a "slider" than a "joystick" they may change that to sth more conventional.

i highly doubt they'll keep the flat-bottom steering wheel.. go with a round one to keep the old folks from getting weirded out.

headlamp detail.. probably something less complicated?

just my thoughts.

I love the look of that car.

However, I've never driven a Japanese car that can match the stability and refinement of a German. Many domestic cars feel stable also, but refinement is greatly lacking.
