The M2 Competition will not have the split kidney grills that normally go on BMWs. Apparently its just a one piece grill. It also comes with a detuned, 405hp S55:

I guess they think it will open up more styling options for them.
I would disagree with them. ONE of the things that is a "signature" of a BMW is the kidneys, while changed over the years still remain very much the same. Guess we'll have to see the entire thing to really say if it will fly with the BMW enthusiasts.

Chances are it will resemble the basic shape but will be connected in the center?

I think whatever I see up there looks better than their i vision dynamics concept:
