It may look like a gay dolphin, but I bet it would be a blast to drive!

ok after really looking for a good view of what the 2008 m3 will look like, i finally found it on a website that is completely in russian. Can't read anything, but they have amazing spy shots showing the front bumper.

I wouldn't read too much into some of the "previews" they don't usually give a good sense of the look of the car. I may be one of the few, but I personally haven't really disapproved of any of the Bangle designs so far (so long as people aren't cheap and load them up with options). I doubt they'll lay an egg with the M3...it's one of their signature autos, I'm sure they realize the importance of getting it right on this one.
