After following this thread, and watching the pictures unfold, both here and on Bimmerfile, this idea of piece meal unveiling of the car is a bit sophomoric. I would love to know whose idea this was and how they explained that this would be a good way to unveil the car.

This is like complaining that all a stripper showed was one boob, be thankful you only saw one "headlight"....I know, I know, it would have been better if her "headlights were on"

"Look, I think I can see...." This is like looking at a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition back in middle school...

So, what do think of this "lil stripper", does she leave you wanting more?

And, the angel eyes were on, so her headlights were technically "on".

I do wish that they unveil the whole thing, and then in December show it in two colors, this color with a carbonfiber roof, and a white or Laguna Seca blue color (with carbonfiber roof) with black rims

I think that is an oil cooler. I doubt there is enough room to squeeze an intercooler in that spot.

wow! what teaser from BMW.
The front end look awesome with the new line (vents). This going to be a sick car, can't wait to see the full car in real life.

Thanks for the latest photos as well. That fender is just phenomenal. The only slight disappointment is the fake quads but that exhaust pipe looks much bigger than the 135i's? The shot of the LSD - brilliant can't believe you managed to get a shot of the undercariage.

oh boy oh boy.

That looks DAMN sexy!

Those camouflage shot really didn't give the car justice.

Love the front bumper, love the quads, love the rims..... oh wait. love EVERYTHING. Seems like my plans for the 135i will be canceled. Waiting for this baby

Anybody notice how aggresive the central intake is styled? You can see the outline and shape even with the cover on...

I have a funny feeling it is going to have M3 Style mirrors.

Looks like it's an oil cooler (one on each side).

Yeah they are taking no chances with the cooling on this car, as we can see.

could just be the additional water radiator as per the 35iS & BMW performance power kits.... that would be lame - I hope they have fitter a bigger capacity main radiator and two oil coolers.
