looks pretty legit to me...first pic looks like carbon roof, but that could just be lighting since the color also looks darker red but brighter in the second...third pic seats look good, but a bit disappointed, not vented & may not be multifunction, like the button to move the seat fwd/bwd....looks great hopefully & we already knew we would have the console running all the way to the rear...

According to the info, the new M3 gets CF roof. the new V8 engine drinks 8% less fuel than the old M3 E46 engine. Impressive I must say.

Totally agree. Not a PS.

Uncertain about the brakes being 6 and 4 pots though. Simply cannot tell from those photos. No doubt the hi-res images will be released very soon.

They must be breaking a press embargo then, because BMW havent released them to the public

Yep, I remember someone saying that both holes would not be used in the normal M3, only the CSL, so that fits.

Wow, looks great even in Imola Red. I agree - the 18s look tiny. I'll be having the concept wheels if offered.

I think that actually might be the new Melbourne Red; looks to be a tad darker than Imola. I think it's great. Still would love Laguna Seca Blue though...
