I am 99.99% sure it is an E92 M3. Look at the width of the front fender flares. Also look at the "split wing" mirror design hiding under the CAMO'D mirrors.

i don't think so, it's too rough of a shot to tell and i'd bet it's the angle. i mean let's be real... with those pictures the best view we have is the rear. and the M5 and the M6 both have the same designed rear bumper, i'd be shocked if they steered away from that design for the M3. similarly to the closeness of the E39 M5 and the E46 M3. i'd bet my car it's not an M3. plus... you can see the wheels on it are the design of the E92 M sport package wheels.

Fellas... let's not get too crazy about what this is

We'll find out in due time, and in the meantime let's keep all the speculation fun and light.

I have my reservations that that will be the final M3 bumper.. it looks very similar to the E92 OEM Aerokit rear bumper -

yup i think thats what it'll look like but with the exhausts alittle closer to the middle. the bottom corners is exactly what i knew it would look like from certain spy photos. im sure customized this car saw the M3 already and copied and customized this bumper to resemble the M3. and also the toe hitch mark isnt square its a circle on the M3. front and back toe hitches.

Maybe its just a 335i owner with quad exhaust.

Like said before though i'm sure the real thing will be amazing. Just dissapponted with it. Good find.

It's an M3. The rear bumper is trivial relative to the rest of the car that has been fairly exposed everywhere for quite some time now.

Or, some 335i owner likes driving around with tape on his/her front fenders.

I've seen the 335 aero kit rear... the pic of the black car is most def an m3. that white pic of the 335 is not a custom rear, its the OEM aero rear with quad. the m3 quad tips stick out further and are arranged closer together.

I'm sorry to say that, but I would also say that this is most likely an M3: It's all there: 4 tips, new mirrors with disguise, side gills with cover on them and so on...
This car is the same level of disguise as the grey car was, and nobody had doubts that this is an M3:



Best regards, south

Yeah, I think the M3 will have a similar design to the aerokit, check out this chop I made, it's not the best but I think it should look quite similar....

By looking closer at the spyshot below, I think it will be more like this :

edit: By the time I finished the ps, the bumper was too big, but I think the dimensions are about right now !

Nice! I think yours matches the spy photo better than mine as well. This is fun - I wonder what is under there?

It is a little busy for my tastes as well. I'm kind of hoping that it only has the center opening possibly. I have faith in them, and I like the rest of the car a lot so far.

Yeah I agree, I'm just hoping when we see the finished product it'll be aggressive and not have an "aftermarket" look to it !
