It can be as AWD as it wants to be, doesn't really make it any more appealing.

I do wonder how AWD will influence the take rate. With the obsession towards HP, 0-60 and AWD despite less engagement and weight penalties it could signal a shift in the future of the M3. BMW could easily argue that there is no need for a RWD M3 with M-xDrive featuring a RWD drift mode. And with no RWD could mean no Manual too.

Purple looks good, but that shade of green is not pretty in my opinion, much prefer IOMG. Also wish they got rid of all those stupid black accents adorning the bottom of the car.

They just sold a SPY M3 to some attorney who purchased it for his son. They flew out from Florida to buy the car.

Agreed on the black accents. I will be painting mine. I also didn't order shadowline trim, so my mirror caps and trunk spoiler will be body colored.

Damn how do I get adopted by that guy...

Also, I can't deal with Mint on cars that weren't built in the 1950s or retro inspired guitars. I hated it on E9X & F8X, and I still hate it here Purple and Urban Green look okay (Urban Green just looks very 2018 to me), but I'd much prefer IOMG or BRG if I had the option. There was a Peridot Green featured on the front page which looks really nice as well

The ///M Individual coordinator at the dealer said he regularly pulls up the dealer order sheets to check what every other dealership has ordered, and he purposely orders cars no other dealership has.

Smart man, I love seeing individual color cars around - heck sometimes I wish there was an individual available when I was buying my car (surprisingly there were next to none at that time). Low-key toyed with the idea of a full respray or even an autoflex to put on either Grigio Titanio (Ferrari Silver) or Singapore Grey Metallic. Both of those colors would probably suit G8X very well

Didn't get a G80 in the end y'all, went for something with a bigger grille and more weight instead

Got hit by a truck, literally, so couldn't wait till September and didn't want a run-around that could breakdown or cost me money. Pulled out of an amazing F90 deal at the last minute as it was way more than I need, or want, for still a lot of money (way more a month than this!).

Glad you're okay man! That's a really sweet ride and a much better looker than G8X in my eyes. With the daily out of the way, it might open you up to looking at some more classic/beloved BMWs as well

Side by Side

First time seeing one in the wild... It didn't give me the initial shock that I thought it would but it helps that it's black and lighting conditions are poor.

TBH the tail lights look bad to me.... remind me of a Kia(which ironically is becoming less of an insult, haha)

It did give me a brief feeling of my M being "dated" but we all know that is not necessarily a negative and my M will be with me for Life.

Doubt I'll ever own one... doubt I'll ever buy another ICE car unless it's a 911.
Electric with its instant torque/acceleration just makes so much sense for city driving.

Thanks all! I love it. It's no M3 but it's awesome and I'm a huge tech geek so loving a lot of what people might usually dislike about it. Hopefully be in an M3 after this for the LCI

Java IMO is a good example of how you do a loud color right. Very similar to how Sakhir and Austin Yellow shift light IMO

I think you got the wrong thread... :
I was involved quite a few pages back. Not trying to detract, just updating a few people from when we were chatting then
