Hope it looks better in person... or in sunlight.

Very disappointed in the choices of color. Might have to go with Valencia\Sakir (I normally like understated colors for my cars), but mineral gray is too close to black and SSII has always been meh. Hopefully, given the chance to see the cars\colors in person, my mind may change.

I've seen Valencia on a few 1M's and it looked spectacular but it seemed to fit the small brazen lines of the car. Not sure how it will look on the boats the f80\82m's appear to be.

I know these cars are gonna drive awesome, and save a ton of gas, but damn, BMW couldn't be making it more difficult to leave my e92.

Hoping to be able to hit the DC Auto show tomorrow for some eye's on opinion. I'll keep y'all updated (yes, pics too), if I'm able to go.
I'll be there either tommorrow or saturday. I want a first hand look at these monsters.

I'm a coupe guy. Always have been. But I think the M3 looks better than the M4. Something about the proportions on the M4 seem forced.

It looks like the M3/4's are arriving at different auto shows in new colors/trims. Really hoping for a Sakhir orange at the Chicago Auto show next month! and/or sakhir orange leather (haven't seen either in person).

I also noticed only the Detroit Ms had the full leather, the other 2 auto shows seems to have just the extended leather (no dash). Coming from a F30 I think the full leather is a no brainer at this price point, just to distinguish the interior and make it look more like a $70K+ car should.

Right. I think price is also very reasonable for full leather ($1100 with executive package).

YMB looks amazing in the M4...Overall, the M3 looks better than the M4 but the coupe I think looks better in lighter colors. In dark colors, the rear end and rear 3/4 look off.

Looks fine but nothing really special. At least it will blend in with the thousands of regular 3 and 4 series and won't attract the wrong type of attention.

BMW not doing a great job with design at present other than i8.

I think Silverstone with the cf roof is what I'd go with.. The color, to me, is very interesting IRL.. it's a color that can pop but blend in when necessary.

I have seen MANY posts where people say they think the M3 looks better than the M4, is this all from online photos or have some of you actually seen them both in person? Reason I ask is because I think a car like a 4 series/M4 looks much better in person than photos can show and I have seen several people saying after seeing it at the autoshow they changed their mind and like the M4 more than the M3.

$2200 more for the M4 really isn't bad if you like the appearance better, If you are planning on getting it to $75,000 with options thats just 3% more (not like M6 vs M5 pricing). I have a feeling I will really like the M4 once I see it in person and I have always been a sedan person (especially with 2 kids), now the hard part of convincing my wife an M4 will work with a 5 and 7 year old (their ages when I buy it in 1 1/2 years).

Coupe works for kids that age. They are small enough to get in and out of the back seats easily. The sitting height is lower though so they can't see as much out the windows and could get car sick more often, especially if the dad drives it like there is no tomorrow

In Canada, full leather is $2500 above the extended leather ($4000 total). If you want it as part of the executive package, you need to also get the premium pack for a total of $9000 on the M4 and $9500 on the M3.

For $1100, I migh consider it, but for me, the few extra square feet of leather are not worth $2500. It is purely a personal thing though.

Does anyone have a list of all the places these cars are supposed to make the rounds to? I highly doubt it, but I would like to know if the M3/M4 will show up at the Pittsburgh IAS

the website doesnt have them listed as one of the featured vehicles

It was the case for me. The M4 looks much better in person. Further, in Canada, the M4 goes for only $1000 over the M3.

I am really liking the SSII. I guess it is not for everyone. I like the fact that it is (mostly) an ///M exclusive colour, that it is very easy to maintain and does have that sort of "sleeper" aspect to it.

I do receive a lot of compliments for the colour of my E92(SSII).

I can't seem to decide about the wheel colour though. I did not like the black wheels in pictures but found them really nice in real life. Now seeing the SSII M3 with the silver wheels, I am back at preferring the silver ones .

It's personal preference. Nothing more, nothing less.

There is no official price guide for US, yet.
However, you can get idea on option cost from military order guide.
