As far as Adrian Van Hooydonk and Automobile magazine made it sound..the louvers on both the hood and trunk are here to stay. The Wrap-around taillights and LED headlamps are also there to stay. It's also stated that the wheels are production ready too.

My personal opinion is that the car is awesome and while the wheels are a little weird, I like how they evoke the wheels that were on the original. I think a streamlined version of these wheels(maybe with a 1.5 inch lip) would look awesome. Maybe some RGTs'. I'm also all for the dual roundels at the back because thats what signifies a mid-engined vehicle for BMWs, and I also love the original M1. If they're going to proceed further with this car BMW doesn't need to stray too far from the look of the original. This is a perfect evolution...well maybe if they did something a bit better looking with the front air damn and side sills.

agree, m6 reps or something like that would really set of the car. but if this thing comes out trust me lol it will be like major CLS 500, lamborghini gallardo and ferrari 360 killer lol and anything else that comes 2 mind.

Man, they really couldnīt have done a worse wheel design even if they tried, must have been a hobbit that thought of those and a bunch of other idiots that said nothing about it. The car in general is OK, maybe a tad too space ship like for me. Nothing like the Ferrari F430, or Aston, or Lambo, or any of these others that are much, much nicer. Hope they improve it.

I SO want this car!!!! Even with those wheels.

The two Roundels in the back are similar to the placement of the two Roundels on the original M1.

It signifies that it is a midengine car, the original M1 being the only car in the BMW fleet to ever have dual roundels.

So obviously they wanted to keep this distinction on the new M1.
