Looks like the M or M60i.

No matter how big or ugly the grill is, we can take solace in the fact that it doesn't have those god awful split headlights.

On the subject of the Nürburgring, RIP Sabine Schmitz.

So the M60i will be level the "M" is now?

The M50i will be renamed to be M60i.

The more I look at the lights...I'm not 100% convinced the front lights are not split/new...

I have previously read that the BMW head designers have confirmed the split headlights are reserved for the top series only.

i.e. BMW 7 series, X7 and XM.

But then it slowly trickles down to every model...

Yes, that’s what one BMW designer said in the i7 review video.

The X7 M60i now has the winged mirrors as well so can be the M60i as well

That is definitely the M60. The exhaust tips are the exact same as the new X7 M60. Also the positioning of the rear reflectors give it away

The winged side mirrors have now filtered down to the M performance models, they are no longer designated for a full M model only.

The headlights look very slim. My suspicion is they again went for a split headlight design.

BMW has already stated that won't happen as they are reserved for the top luxury models - 7, X7 and XM.

Given the timing of the X7 and 3 Series reveals probably in the January - March timeframe.

Just the fact that it has come to this ! If it has one of the most terrible BMW design choices of late, but not THE most terrible, we are happy :
