I'm guessing it will have the X5M style rear vents with the reflectors since they have the little reflectors stuck to the bumper to comply with safety regulations.

I know... crap... I was so set on Mineral Grey...

But LBB just looks so amazing here. I'm usually a low profile guy, but this color just looks epic in these shots.

I was on the fence between lbb and mg as well. Seeing these pics has swayed me towards lbb by a lot.

Not anymore busy than the M3/4. Also I would bet that the spontaneous and erratic placement of camo makes it look way less fluent and way more busy than it actually is.

Optical illusion because it doesn't seem as wide. Only when viewed from behind do you see it. It doesn't look as flared out from the side view.

I'm still hoping they are in that small camo part above the tail pipes.

It is closely based on the Vision GT6. However it was determined early on that the side vents wouldn't be there. Perhaps they will be saved for a more hardcore version if needed.
He even had a comment where he said, 'push the vent into the body work, and you have the M2'

Is that the new x1? It's on stilts.

Also, why are the mirrors in LBB? Does that mean those are final mirrors?

M mirrors will not be on there until the final reveal. Just like with the 1M.
