    ^^^^ It looks like the ugly Guppy looking F56 has a new fish tank in the F55.

    It is photoshopped. That image is a rendering that is in part based on recent spy shots.

    Nope, just far enough back in the R53 lineage to get away from that JCW style front bumper. Put that picture together with the stock R53 bumper versus the R56, and it's an even more dramatic picture.

    And that is from someone who has the GP bumper, which I dislike even more (Yes, I compromised for convienence/track).

    Never has anyone accused me of that before.

    Except now you. And my wife. And my immediate nuclear family. And my co-workers. And the guy that built my house. And a few people in the Fox Valley, and the neighboring states of Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois.

    If the f56 does not have a dipstick, how is the oil level determined? I searched M/A but could not find an answer to either questions above. :confused5:

    Sorry no one really can answer this question yet because the BMW / MINI evil empire has not told anyone yet.

    But Motoring File thinks the car is just Fantastic. :lol:
