Lol. My local got an M3 and 2 M4s so I am going to swing by and check them out later today. Hoping to be able to drive the M3 even though its a comp and I prefer a manual.

Yes! This is exactly what I am appreciating more and more, especially since F8X is now the "older" generation. Even if you but E30 and F8X next to each other, there are enough design similarities between the two to draw the conclusion that they are cut from the same cloth; in this case, the shoulder line, the kink, round headlights/DRLs, & Kidneys - obviously helps to have the in-between generations to fill in the gaps but still can see the DNA without them

I think the dealer nearby got an M4 6MT and M3 8AT but my preferred dealer only has M3/M4 8AT - I do want to test drive it just to see how it is in person.

I found it very odd. If they don't want people to touch, you put a sign up, not to mention every car on the showroom floor was locked anyways, and these two units weren't sold. And they aren't allowed to be sold/driven for another week, so why the sheet? Especially when they weren't covered last week? If you want to get customers excited they shouldn't put the sheet on.

maybe the sheet is there to protect customers from the giant beaver that lies beneath.

Another photo comparison, this time an M2CS.

And this one is real interesting because a card that the G8X fanboys always pull is the "but it looks much more aggressive with the big grills." Here actually I find the M2CS more aggressive even with smaller and proportionate grills. This is because like the F-Generation vehicles, the use of harder body-lines and sharer creases outdo the soft and faint creases and body-lines of the G8X. Even with a large grill and air intake, the front end is softer and has less depth to it mainly from the headlights and lower creases.

Exactly! Also, this really puts the M2's actual size into perspective. Not that anyone here says it, but I keep hearing from non-car and car people I know that the M2 is the "smaller, lighter" car ad nauseam. Don't get me wrong, it's a fantastic fun car because of the wheel base, but it ain't smaller and it ain't lighter

Agree, it still is a porker for a car of its size, but luckily it has many redeeming qualities going for it.

This is a very politically correct assessment of the G8X, not harsh or abrasive, but really hits on many of the points that many of us have been making (beyond just the grille). I don't like this channel that much, but I appreciate that this guy is being honest vs just drinking the kool-aid like a lot of "influencers"

I've always hated the fang design of the M2's front bumper. It never grew on me.......in much the same way that the G8X grille will never grow on some members here.

Don't worry I'm not a fan of the "fangs" either. They always stuck me as obstructive - it's part of the reason I don't like the G8X fascia, the fangs are present there as well but inverted & connected. I much prefer an open intake like E46/9X, and if a design element is needed, then something low key like the "lips" on F8X or F13 M6

I dropped by my local dealer the other day, and they stated that they sold the G80 M3 that they had. Two guys were working on it putting tint on the windows. They also stated that the guy who purchased it wasnít allowed to pick it up until the 13th.

Exactly! They've essentially added what should've been there and hid everything else - the other smart move is the asymmetrical hood/roof/trunk decal which pulls the eye from the center of the car to only focus on the left 1/3 top and the shoulder line.

Really good makeup job - clean and from a distance it undoes the clashing lines disaster.

This is a good post and made a similar comment on the thread for that car, before reading yours here.

It's interesting, people are basically saying that they're just gonna spend money in the aftermarket to fix the car. I mean, sure, do that if you want, but why should you have to?

I've only ever been tempted once to buy an ugly car and try to fix it with mods. And that was with the R35 GTR. but that car was such a world beater for the price, that there was actually a reason to put up with the looks.

And this is the reason for the embargo. Imagine if they heard the shit reviews. I would expect cancelled orders lol
