Looks interesting and a LOT different than all the renderings etc

Looks like it has the vent in the fender that wasn't very well hidden by the camouflage. Looks good so far.

This looks super concepty. That's unlike bmw at least traditionally but they did do that with the 8er.

Headlights right off the bat won't look like that in production. Rear arches will be toned down.

Without the grille, it would look like Lexus SC...years ago. Somehow, I still like E89 design especially 2011-2014 Z4 30i. I love the N52 engine which was the best one BMW has ever made imo!

Is there really that much excitement when you're with a .. oops!! .. i mean.. experiencing a tease ? Well perhaps there is some excitement ... but then usually major disappointment next ... right ?

The potential is clearly there! But it is a concept. The mirrors and the lights are surely a usual "concept" treat. Hopefully it is a fresh design, and they will not chicken out from concept to the real deal.
