So far it seems like 2011-2 is the date to look out for. 2011 for the traditional euro hatch and 2012 for the coupes that will come to the USA.

Agree with everyone else that the car looks bigger. Fully enjoyed seeing that test driver flustered by the camera man. What was he trying to do, backing away against traffic? LOL. What he can do is point a laser pointer at the camera lens and hope it burns out the CCD. =)

That driver needs to get over himself. When you drive a prototype, spy shots come with the territory.

Yeah 5 doors and that's a car I'd love to see this side of the pond. Seems to perform pretty well in reverse.

I hate those mule hunters...
From time to time I happen to fill up my car at that gas station,too

and yes,there are pretty much only BMWs,since the HQ is right around the corner

BMW now even offers car magazines test rides in Prototype cars because this "mule hunting" has become a disease..

They are much too intrusive and totally miss the point at where things are getting ugly...

i do believe that this test mule drivers are instructed to get away from the people with cameras, me and my brother were chasing a test mule 760li on a freeway on 101 a couple of months ago (i was recording from a cell) and he got got pissed floored it, but since it was traffic he couldn't shake us, but when we were getting off the freeway he gave us the "dirty look" and shaked his head it was a lot of fun chasing him around though.
