I think he's asking whether everyone thinks it will have a grill design like the E46 M3 or a single chrome line like the M6.

Cooling

It is odd that M6 does not have actual vents. In the E46 M3 one of the vents is functional - cooling for engine electronics. I hope is has the functionality in the new design but suspect it won't.

IMO the M6-like design is more aesthetic. It flows better with the sculpted lines of the E9x.

Were you heading south on the 405 into OC on Tuesday afternoon around 4:30pm? I think I passed that beautiful M3 of yours. If so, beautiful.

According to Autoweek the e92 will have similarly functional side vent on the passenger's side.:rocks:

And therefore the answer to th OP question would be Yes
