I want to disagree with you but I think what you stated is coming true. I just saw renders of the 7 series LCI....>.<

Dude, our men have been rocking beards here for a year now and the death rate of married men in Europe has not risen much. Apparently we've all lost all sense of beauty and style and BMW has decided to commemorate this with a car that looks as bad as the bear I wake up next to.

Yoda was indeed banned for the more obvious subject at hand.

While the 7 series LCI is obviously not a car for buyers in the M range generally but if that picture is true, holy crap BMW has lost its way. There is very little marketing they can do that can reverse all of these ugly ass designs that will tank their sales.

BMW's EV might sell okay MAINLY on the fact that there will be rebates and cash back for them but that will not keep the sales afloat. It didn't for the i3, it won't here especially since Tesla, Audi, Porsche, VW all have better options that don't have a car's face that makes you want to punch it.

The G8x will sell okay for the reason that BMW will push hard for lease deals once they see how many of these cars are sitting already. Although it isn't starting off this way because according to the threads, these car lease cost over 1k at the moment. I'm curious how long this attitude will last.

It'll be interesting ... I can't see it but A building I live in has tons of nice cars and lots of BMW Ms (M2/4 CS, M8s, etc) - both in '14 & '17(?) when the F8x and LCI came out I saw one in my building immediately, same with the CSs ... and then of course there's also the first runs of all the normals - well, to date, no bucktooths yet which I'm pretty surprised at ... I figured I'd see at least one ...

So I'll be curious how fast I see a G8x. It's anecdotal of course, but I just can't see someone buying one, at least around here.

And I drive past two large dealerships weekly and so far, from the road, I don't see any buckys ... they're really pushing the X2/3/4/5/6s and M5s but no buckys anywhere in sight from the road.

And I've not see any in the wild, though I'm not on the road much any more.

How about the rest of you? See any buckys?

I'm in an area where there is a lot of $$ flowing around. Think I was told before it's like "Asian Beverly Hills" or some crap like that. Iuno who came up with this term, granted I lived here way before or that has happened.

But is it unusual? Yes. Considering BMW, Benz, Audi, Porsche are very common here, it is out of the ordinary not to see newly released cars.

I’ve said this before... till today, not a single sighting yet. I see Fx series cars, today I saw a new 5 series (550 M sport), 330s, maybe the occasional 340. Seen some of the new SUVs too. Not a single bucktoothed car yet. I have actually seen a Taycan turbo already. I think tomorrow, I’ll drive by the local BMW dealer to see what’s on the lot.

Funny that you mention this! I've seen many so didn't even think of it

The guy in the video didn't let the car warm up and did a few revs. Once the cats and engine warms up the tone of the car changes but cold start wise yes it does sound like that.

The new LCIed 2.9L V6 has more of an angry snarl compared to the deep growl of the old 3.0 V6. Sport/Sport+, open valve I prefer the 2.9L one. It sounds better to me because when you get deeper into the RPM range it sounds like Porsche's flat 6 noises.

This is the same engine you will find in the Turbo, but the S has a different 3.0L V6.

That 7 series render is awful, but I can see it doing ok with the market it is going for. Renders are always a little weird looking anyway. It kinda has that Rolls Royce phantom wannabe vibe. But if you ask me... pig snout G8x or that, I'd take that (and I haaaate big sedans).

I haven't see any new 4ers on the road. I still see new m340 with temp plates, so people are still buying those.

I know a lot of you guys are preparing for the real inauguration on March 4th and, if you're like me, seditionin' really works up an appetite! And if you want the best masks and pepper spray you gotta get there early, and with tactical suit-up, who has time to eat??

Well problem solved!

Tactical egg holster.

What if you are into Eggbeaters? Do you have to have a different kind of holster?

Healthier, yet no less seditious?
