BMW 6-Series M-Sport leaked in print advertising?

The one thing alot of us have been waiting for in the 6-Series lineup is the M-Sport package. The way BMW has been going with styling, its not going to be a big surprise as to how it will look. Basicly, the U or V shaped central air intake which was the staple of cars such as the E39 M5 and E46 M3 is now an M-Sport design feature, while the true M cars get the upside down U shaped intake or U shaped with the bottom of the U much wider then the top portion, ala E92 M3, 1M Coupe and now F10 M5.

But this photo goes a long way to confirming that, and the photo certainly looks real. According to klier, this photo was published in a leading dutch newspaper (NRC Handelsblad) as an official BMW advertisement for the new 6. Now as you may or may not know, the M-Sport kit has not been officially released in any way shape or form, so this is the first official photo on record of the M-Sport 6. Lets hope to see more real photos of the M-sport when the car is shown at either the Shanghai Autoshow or the New York Autoshow.

Personally, the kit looks great, fits the character of the 6. The row of LED foglamps is exactly what the 6er needs and with the LED headlamps this will be absolute perfection.

** (Before anyone screams photoshop, you can compare this photo with our spyshots of the 6er M-Sport yourself: http://www.6post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=507866)

** UPDATE: Southlight, the genius that he is, figured to go onto their site with their iPad app and took a screen capture of the ad which is currently running and you can see for yourself! -- Ive attached his screen capture below

Looks great. It's good to see a proper M-sport version of the 6. However, I just hope the M6 looks different from this M-sport.

Don't worry, they're just foglights. Not those stupid DLR's like Audi has...

IMO the full LED head lights with squared off angel eyes are a must on the new 6!

BTW, the M-Sport package isn't a 'leak' anymore since BMW made it official (did they not?). All dealers (at least across Europe) can offer it on the 6 Series as long as they put their 'Sales Assistant' production date on september.

But it's a nice find, though!
