The wheel looks small, so I would have to say it looks like an LCI 1er?

Those look like M rims on PZero tires. AND it's on the e90 section of the forums.

I'm gonna go with the new 4 coupe.

M335i. Sports version of the 335i. Those are similar rims to the m135i.

Caliper is big. 4 pot not the standard type used. The new 1M / 2M for 2013-14? That would be cool

Hmmmm.... 2 Series coupe or whatever the US coupe version of the M135i will be called.

(I'm so confused by the nomenclature with BMW's these days... that can't be good for consumers when brand loyalists and enthusiasts are confused.)

Those are the same M-sport wheels as the F30/F31 3-series with M-sport pack.
So I guess it's in the same line as a 3 series.

The general BMW forum is linked across all Bimmerpost forums. Jason just happened to use e90post for the homepage link.

F34 GT M Sport. Or GranCoupe...

Either way, it's on the F3X chassis and is the M Sport version, with the 28i, 30d or 35i in.

+1 mainly b/c those are def m-style rims on performance tires.

That's the M6 Gran Coupe, which we were on hand to see debuted.

No teasers needed as we've posted a full gallery of it at http://www.6post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=767091

F30-LCI early to improve that substandard steering! (*wishful thinking*)

I say, 3er GT?

That's my guess also, it also makes perfect sense for them to release this before the coupe and M-cars

The strange thing is... the calipers are always on the midsection side of the wheelcase, so that black gloss detail/airhole? is on the midsection of the car, but too low compared to M car airholes. More like that chrome detail on the 7 series which is on the exact same spot.

Also that little extruded bodywork line under the logo is similar to the bodywork of a regular F30 where that line begins at roughly the same place in the front as in this picture and ends at the taillight.

Definetly not an M car. More a luxurious thing I guess.
