Yep, you're right. Those are "camo holders", as also seen on the cockpit spy shot.
Hmmmmmm... I think this will be my next car
Damn, it must be soft!
The Bilstein/Eibach solution never felt more neccessary on a BMW
The side vente is ridiculous, hope it won't be a new trademark for BMW as it look cheap and out of place.
I actually quite liked the 5erGT for what is was, and I'm pretty comfortable with this one as well. A little less awkwardly shaped, though the front seems a little odd for some reason. I really hate the side vents though. On some angles it looks okay, but when you can tell that it's just a cheap piece of plastic...it's quite unbecoming.
I was sold on the 5GT now even more so on the 3GT. Damn fine looking machine who's 'face' just emphasizes That Powerful Presence boldly! So athletic....I am bowled over
looks pretty good imo, what's wrong with it? think those vents are exclusive to GT models? don't know but overall shape looks good, face looks good, wonder how they would price it, could steal sales from the F10.
i dont' know i think this front end looks better than the F30...
Looks as ungainly as a pregnant chick, just like it's elder sis.
Oh wow. That front end looks superb. If the coupe looks like that then all will be forgiven.
Why would BMW be so careless to do the photoshoot in public like this? It looks like they're shooting the photos for the brochure.
Anybody know which American city they were taken in? I would guess so somewhere warm like Miami or Los Angeles.
After a bit of detective work using Google Maps I've worked out where those photos were taken. It's the corner of East 1st Street and Main Street, opposite the headquarters of the LAPD in Los Angeles. They were probably taken yesterday (Sunday) when it was quiet and I suspect they closed off the streets.

Oh God... What a fugly BMW. The stance and proportions are far far worse than those on the 5er Gt and of course, far worse than the R-Class ones. The rear doesn´t convince me neither. The front, on the other side, looks very nice, the kidneys are probably the nicest ones in the current line up, and the front lighst integration with them, much better than in the F30.
I love the matte black ML they use for video. Amazing that truck is used in all these photo/video shoots.
As far as GT, it doesn't look that bad. I think it looks better than the 5 and the integration of the grill and lights is far better than the regular 3.
Wow, that looks weird and awful. I even see some Audi in the greenhouse. That side vent looks so cheesy, out of place, gimmicky and cheap.
The front, however, actually looks good! Seems the grille is different from the F30 and executed much better. In contrast to my comments on the 4-Coupe thread, looks like BMW might be hopefully finding their groove with the new interpretation of the kidneys! (finally)
Why were the other pics deleted?
no thank you BMW, you can keep it. For me the front doesn't work. the lights merging with the kidney grill looked benign at first, but just plain grotesque after a second look and already looks dated. profile is horrible, and the rear 3/4 just plain wrong.
wonder who this car is aimed at?
Yikes. I don't get it, why another one of these when the 5GT is a dud already?
