Hamann has released some great looking new aero parts to enhance the factory F10 M-sport package - consisting of the Hamann Competition Front Spoiler and Rear Center Molding/Panel. Paired with factory whiteline tail lights on a black F10, these parts look seriously mean!
Although we have already seen a completely uncovered production 6-series coupe, these spy photos confirm that the upcoming production 2012 6-series coupe will feature a glass panoramic roof! A beautiful glass panoramic roof has been featured on the 6-series concept car, but these photos confirm that the glass greenhouse will indeed make it to production. The production glass top, however, appears to only extend back until the B-pillar and does not encompass the entire roof as seen on the concept coupe.
Having been inside the concept coupe, we can say that the glass roof provides for not only a beautiful look, but also a more spacious feeling inside the coupe, which reduces any claustrophobic feeling - particularly for rear seat passengers. We have posted some photos of … CONTINUED

Beginning in March, frozen black and frozen gray matte paint will be offered on the F10 sedan and F11 touring.

The two matte paint options will be available with the F10 and F11 M-sport packages and will be available on all models of the F10 and F11. The special paint option will not come cheap however, estimated to be 3300 euros.
Related to this, below is a photo of a recently spotted matte black F10 5-series sedan. Could this be a BMW prototype of the upcoming matte paint option? Official or not, it gives us a preview of how the F10 will appear in frozen black paint!… CONTINUED
Chris Neville, host on SPEED’s broadcast of the 24 Hours at Daytona Grand-Am Rolex race, got some track time behind the 1M coupe at Daytona International Speedway. He provided his review in a short segment during which he glows about the upcoming baby M. Neville praises the 1M’s quick tun in ability and left-right transition from its short wheelbase, ability to stick to tarmac on turns, tight and smooth grearbox, and braking ability.
Chris Neville is no stranger to performance cars, as he has been a former race winner in the SCCA Trans-Am, SPEED World Challenge, Star Formula Mazda, and GT America Stock Car series. In 1998, Neville signed with ARCO am/pm to compete in the SCCA Trans-Am series. He quickly racked up multiple podium finishes on … CONTINUED
Here’s yet another sighting of the 1M coupe, this time at the Schipol Airport (KLM Cargo area) in the Netherlands. Schipol airport appears to be a great place for BMW prototype/pre-production sightings, as an M5 test mule was just recently spotted there.
Although we have now seen tons of photos of the 1M coupe in Valencia Orange, additional pics of this color in different lightings and conditions are nevertheless helpful as Valencia Orange has been a difficult color to photograph and describe. Its extremely metallic look and hue take on different looks, in photographs and in-person.
