These two desirable BMW coupes are on exhibit at the 2013 NY auto show, with the F13 M6 coupe representing the newly here while the 135is coupe is on its way out.

This black sapphire metallic M6 is the flagship BMW M coupe with its 560hp / 502 lb-ft torque twin turbo V8 powerplant, while the 135is coupe remains one of BMW’s best performing small coupe, for now…

The 135is coupe will be replaced later this year by the BMW M235i coupe (the E82 1 series coupe will be replaced by the F22 2 series coupe).

Now that the 4 Series Coupe (F32) has been revealed [photos], we thought we’d take another crack at imagining and predicting the look of the 2015 M4 Coupe (F82), while adding some track aero parts, for fun.

With the latest F82 M4 prototype sighting (gallery below), we have seen the following:

• Double slatted kidney grilles
• M4 badge on kidney grilles (a la M6) (currently covered)
• LED headlights
• LED tail lights
• Carbon ceramic brakes (optional) being tested in signature gold color (just as on F80 M3 prototype)
• Hood power dome/bulge
• Sculpted double-bubble carbon fiber roof (like M6 Coupe)
• Production side mirrors (still under camouflage)
• Integrated trunk spoiler
• Wide fenders
• Slanted exhaust tips
• Production sideskirts
• Wearing Continental ContiSportContact tires – 275/35 rear (like F80 M3)
• Gap in front … CONTINUED

As expected, the 2014 F10 M5 will be receiving a LCI update/facelift together with the F10 5 Series. The 5 Series LCI facelift has already been partially revealed, but it’s been unknown how much of the M5′s design would be affected.

These spy photos show that the F10 M5 will receive the same upper front fascia and headlight updates [pics] as the 5 Series, but will receive no changes to the lower front bumper design. Like the 5 Series, the F10 M5 will also receive light updates to its tail lights and lower rear bumper.

The 5 Series LCI will receive tweaks to its steering, but it’s not yet known if the F10 M5 will be affected by this, or receive any other mechanical updates.

3D Design presents the F06 6 Series Gran Coupe. The F06 program consists of a front lip spoiler manufactured in urethane with carbon fiber accents, a full carbon fiber rear diffuser, and a more aggressive urethane trunk spoiler.

The front lip and rear diffuser are compatible with all F06/F12/F13 M-sport models, but the trunk spoiler only fits the Gran Coupe and Coupe (F06/F13)

3101-20611 Front Lip Spoiler Set (Urethane + CFRP)
3108-20621 Rear Diffuser (CFRP)
3109-20611 Trunk Spoiler (Urethane)
