Those look like that latest X5 wheels, so I'm guessing something in the SUV/SAV/CUV category. That said, that's a fat fixed caliper and those are Pirelli P-Zeros, so maybe an M Performance model of the former.

I'll say the X3 M35i.

No those are the 19" M-sport wheels for the F30.

I agree about the X, perhaps a sport version of the new X4, the coupe version of the X3.
Or simply the new 4 / F32

Not sure on the model but given the caliper size and the wheels looking like the rest of the line I'd
bet it's a new M performance model.

Fingers crossed it is an M340 with a monster triple turbo diesel or a peach of petrol n.a. model or better both options!

So is this the front side of the rear wheel (front of the car pointing to the right), or the back side of the front wheel (front of the car pointing to the left)?

(Brake caliper position seems to eliminate the other two possibilities, no?)

I have my thoughts, but given the wide variations in answers, it appears that people have differening opinions even on this point, nevermind what type of vehicle it is, nevermind what specific model it might be.

Also, if this were an M335i or other model sharing sheetmetal with an existing model, we should be able to determine which very easily by matching up the character line beneath the BimmerPost logo, agreed?

M Performance wheels. M340i/d or possibly M650i/d.

Are those Pirelli run flats? Thought they would use Michelin Pilot Super sports.

Having read some other posts, Z435iM or X135ixM?

Have to be an xxxiM, If a true M would have Michelin Super sports. Brakes calipers look lilke the m performance brakes and the wheels look like 18s.

How about an m version of the X1?
