all the wheels are two tone with grey or black.

I would also prefer all black.

Actually thought the opposite. It looks more aggressive in pictures. When I saw them in person a few weeks back, they were kinda a let down. The M3 definitely look more M-car. The M4 had a 435i m-sport vibe.

Enough pics already. Has anyone driven this car yet?? What's the deal. People are dropping a lot of coin on a car they have never driven.

What ever happened to BMW using OLED screens to display all the gauges digitally? Is that only in the M5 I think it was? I thought that was pretty cool.

That god damn nav screen completely ruins this car for me. It's so petty I know but it's such an eyesore and feels like a complete afterthought.

After living with the "new" Nav screen for a year (and coming from an E92), the new style is definitely better, and better from a functional standpoint. Makes the dash lower, overall. No glare, and positioned higher up in your line-of-sight, which is a good thing.

You really wanna see a mess, google the new C-class Nav screen. You'll be grateful BMW did such a nice job on the F3x/F8x.

I think it works similar to the illuminated dials on watches some how stores light. The product guy from BMW mentioned them specifically as lighting up.
