I think its also having the C8 effect with the current market. Some people would rather have the extra money it seems. Just look at the amount of posts in the G8X forum talking about selling their cars for profit.

Contrast that with the number of members interested in a former Indycar rookie of the year, top 10 Indy 500 finisher, and IMSA champion running the G82 on track: 2.

Two members interested enough to produce a couple of generic tire related posts. M have nuked their relationship with driving enthusiasts.

Honestly, disappointed by the lack of track content on the G8x board. I've seen one customer G80 so far at four track events this year, too.

It'll get better once the prices come down - the F8x is getting there already in the cycle of an M3 - but it's still quiet compared to the one we've got here.

Well guys... another one bites the dust. I resisted for so long, but this car market got to me, and I am gutted to report that I have indeed let go of the F82. It has been a fantastic car for the time that I had it, and I have many cherished memories with it: driving it, tracking it, working on it, heck even just looking at it. It's bittersweet because I love this community so much that it saddens me to have to break this news to you guys. I always through the F82 would be a forever car but every car has a price... Anyway, I've posted some pics and memories of my time with the F82, and whoever is lucky enough to end up with it will be in for a great time.






And with that I will close out this post... the F82 will be sorely missed. But ultimately I needed something a little more practical that is just better damped for these PNW roads and has 4 doors. To everyone on this thread, I'll just give you a reminder that y'all are so great and it's been real: stein_325i CT_M3 swagon Tecnniqe Sedan_Clan minn19 Arcades GrussGott NickyC MFNATIK CanAutM3 Humdizzle M3WC F8SEVEN dms-01 Thescout13 fiveohwblow icegrill No Boost and quite a few others that I am not quite remembering off the top of my head, as well as those who are no longer with us on BP. Now I sit here without the F82... I feel a hole in my soul and I only hope that its replacement (pic below) will fill it.

Lol yes. These are best kind of new (to you or whatever) car posts we need in here. Staying within the brand and same generation. Right on getting the M3CS and not the 4. Much more special IMHO. Did you at least get a good trade on your car? I thought about doing the same and jumping into a CS but not sure I'd be happy with a DCT.

That's one hot upgrade. The best part though is you upgraded to a real color this time, San Merino Blue! Now all we need is some proper pics of that beauty, enjoy it!

agreed, San Marino is the best BMW blue, unless it's an E46, then it's Laguna Seca Blue

haha surprisingly the CS suspension is much better sorted on rougher roads than my base suspension ever was. Not as nervous and soaks up the roads very well for a 19/20 setup. Going 18s all around tho in a couple weeks.

I did have a few moments where I thought long and hard about an off roader (still in the plans) but a leopard doesn't change its spots, and given F8X was a keeper for me I figured I should get one that hits all the spots for me (SMB, F80, Beautiful Interior, not listed much higher than other ZCPs in the area <- still scratching my head on this one, F80 ZCPs are on one)

Yup net 0 on my last car. I wouldn't say this CS was priced at a good deal - just not a bad deal considering the local market. What sold it for me was getting out of the F82 at cost - which pre-LCI F82s aren't exactly the best at holding value. So I wasn't as concerned about the list of the CS more than I was the differential (tax only on the net in WA). Worst case scenario I would stand to lose less money on the CS if I sold at a lose rather than the F82 in a similar circumstance. I never look at cars as an appreciating asset so it's all about loss mitigation and net impact for me.

CS DCT is awesome, though I think it would be a fun car to have in manual as well. I've come to appreciate manual F8X more since I now live in a lower speed environment than the Bay; definitely can't argue with a clutch pedal keeping things more interesting when you can't go "fast" all the time

I am very very very happy I now have a drool worthy color. MG is great but there are just too many amazing color options for F8X. Heck there's even a Java near me in Seattle... seen him around the place.

Abo-frickin-lutely - loving SMB! For me having a "standard" color was my only regret on the first F8X go-round. Real pics coming this weekend!

BMW blues are pretty incredible tbh. I never fell in love with SMB until I saw it on F8X. The hard bodylines and angularity of the car really shows all the hues of SMB all at once

Purely my opinion as a F8X nerd: if there was only one F8X to keep, it would probably be the F80 CS, especially with the way BMW is now pushing the marketing of their vehicles with the Base / Comp / CS / CSL model structure. Darkhorse would be the F82 GTS. All F8X are great, so it's a good problem to have especially since I have the view that F8X will be much more appreciated by enthusiasts as they become more attainable. In contrast, I don't foresee X3M/X4M keeping quite the same level of desirability over time
