Exclamation BMW test mule spotted on the Autobahn...

Ok guys... Saturday I was driving towards Schweinfurt and spotted this test mule from BMW. It is not an X1... and I don't think it was the new X3 either. X3's sit higher up. So what is it>??? It had really skinny tires!

Possibly the new F20 1 Series Hatchback due in 2012.

Noop! I have seen those on the Autobahns. They sit lower. This thing was big! I am starting to think it was the new X3,,, bc of those roof rails - look to be the same as X3's I saw at the BMW dealer yesterday.

If the rear window kink is different from the one of the X3 F25, then it is the new X5 F40. If it is an X3 F25, then it is an ActiveHybrid, or, and please no, the X3 M, that is to come before the next M3 F32, as the X5 M E70 and X6 M E71 came before the new M3 F10.

It's just a mule, but tire width would seem to indicate it is NOT an M model. X3 or X5 seems kind of reasonable.
