Just saw the E92 on the freeway

all masked and such.. sorry about the crappy pics..

to tell you the truth.. when you look at it up close it actualy looks really good.. he had navigation in it too.. looked good.. i can tell he didnt like me taking pictures much.. but.. well i dont care.. haha.. i was going to get more.. but he was literally going 50mph on the freeway and holding up traffic.. oh well.. looked neat so i thought i would just share.. its my second time seeing that same one on the same freeway..

They work for BMWNA. You know, BMW actually tests these cars before they release them to the public.

Are you sure you saw a regular garden-variety E92? It shouldnt have that level of camo at this point; only some black tape over the badges, maybe a black tape stripe down the side, and over the rear lights a little.

The car you saw is a very early testmule.

Ofcourse it's gonna be disguised, the E92 is not out yet. Just because the official pictures are out doesn't really mean a whole lot. Plus, it would be kind of hard to take all that crap off the car...

The one in this thread (http://forum.e90fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1306) isn't that heavily disguised though....

but like.. the door is not really put together it looks like and it seems like there is sheet metal or something on the hood.. and it would be a loud, uncomfortable ride

maybe looking at it all masked up just looks.. nasty.. haha

He is covering his face because he doesn't want his photo taken driving an E92.
