we probably have different styles, but I'd go more Mission Workshop, Red Oxx, or Peak Design or even Tom Bihn ... there's also a lot of cool Cali bag makers like The Brown Buffalo and Inside Line Equipment (he even makes BMW stuff!)

Just my 2 cents, but I don't understand Prada, Mandarina Duck, LV, Tumi, etc ... I like the ultra durable stuff, not that I don't appreciate the fancy stuff ...

Here's ILE's BMW Motorsport colors in one of his bags, but he'll make you whatever you want:


if you're looking for small day pack here's the TB co-pilot (I have the pilot which is awesome for travel):

Ohhh I actually know what you mean.

I been searching for something extremely specific and not big at all, which is how I ran/found the Prada one. I can justify having it because I know what I carry around however, again it's basically $1,2k and I prefer not having to pay that price if I could. Also not really flashy, so... I worry about having a legit Prada thing carrying out silly items that I like to because I'm just picky/clean.

P.S. here is what I mean. https://www.prada.com/us/en/men/bags...YSJ_V_OPD.html I have yet to find something close to this size and portability.

No wonder gruss couldn't go north on Kauai.

A two-mile stretch of Kūhiō Highway reopened this week after being closed since April 2018 because of landslides triggered by record-breaking rainfall. Now, parts of the mountainside are held back with wire mesh that climbs 40 feet in a highway repair project estimated to cost at least $85 million. Three narrow bridges built in 1912 were wiped out and only one has been completely repaired; the other two are partially complete, with makeshift wooden guardrails and cones blocking cars from crashing into the Pacific Ocean.

Went in for an oil change and to test drive an M4 CS to see what all of the hubbub was about..............25k in discounts and some parts swapped over I now have a M4 CS in the garage. I miss my MT and comfort access but it is worth it. I’m not a night and day guy like a lot of other posters here when comparing them, but holy shit what a car. It’s the first time I’ve bought a base car with zero extra options since my key and heater S10. Luckily the standards options on this are considerably more than the old Chevy.

so like what's different, what's the Minne review??

Also, can you get a friend a hook up on an i3? (not me, a friend in minne is looking for an i3)

Unfortunately I only have one pic. Haven't had time and it has pretty much rained ever since I picked up.

As for a comparison/review, I've only got a couple miles one it, but I'm obviously very impressed.

The power band seems much wider and more usable than my ZCP car and it feels significantly faster. I'm not sure if the faster feeling is because I haven't had a DCT car or the new CS engine maps which does add 10HP/37TQ. I'm sure a combo of the both. But, every mode from Comfort to Sport Plus is turned up. Sport still didn't feel that fast in my ZCP and I needed to be in Sport+ to get that feeling. Now I get that in Sport and Sport+ is really fun/intense.

The suspension/chassis improvements are impressive as well. I just got a bunch of suspension work done on my ZCP and I was going to switch it over as I loved the feel of it. Now I'm not so sure as I really like how this thing is out of the box in all facets of driving and all modes. The dealer is making it worth my while to not switch it over, but also giving me a very good break on labor if I choose to do so. I'll have to decide soon.

The steering is improved as well, but less noticeable over the other improvements. It has more feel and is even more direct, which is saying something because it always has been very precise on all of the versions.

Over all the car just feels more fun and playful. It does feel a bit lighter as well and looks amazing. I still think the M3 CS is the best looking of the bunch, but I love the look of the M4 CS as well. The hood is awesome and unbelievably light. I had a hard time shutting it and really had to slam it to get it to latch. On the other ones you just have to drop it from a foot or so. That doesn't work on the CS (or GTS I imagine).

As i just said in previous post, I got 25,500 off of sticker (104,500). They can't sell them and they are really willing to deal to get them of the lots. If it was 10k off in mid 90s It would of been a much harder decision to switch over and I'm not sure it would've been worth it then. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about that. I know everybody hates hearing it, bit on a two door coupe if I'm near six figures I'm looking hard at a Porsche. But, BMW continues to be the value winner against them in numerous ways.

Ask for Alex Tamarkin at 'Tonka BMW. Tell him Jason sent you (I don't get any kickbacks except for continued great deals) and he will take good care of your friend.

GrussGott, a couple of more crappy phone pics of the interior and couple of more notes.

I miss CA quite a bit. I go to grab/touch the door handle every time and forget I don't have it. It is going to take awhile to get used to. Also I miss the armrest, but I'll get a small pillow to solve that problem. Otherwise I don't miss any of the other creature comforts at all.

Congrats!~ I have always loved M-DCTs wonder how the suspension feels compared to my KW DDC.

Just by complete randomness. There are still 2018 Giulia QV sitting on lots... *cough*

Thanks! I never had a problem the M-DCT, it is a fantastic transmission, I just prefer manuals.

Yup, they are up to 18k off in my area and they still aren't moving. Gonna have to do what BMW is doing with these CSs to clear them. But, one is a limited special edition and the other is their main product line.......yikes.

I don't believe the M4CS has any production limit from what I remember reading on the forums here. The M3CS did because it was ending production but the M4CS can still be built if you ask I think.

I think the only thing that you cannot replicate on the CS it the Tune. BMW does something amazing with their tunes as always and there is something not even BM3 can fully replicate. I have been thinking of doing the GTS hood also but I literally would need to find another place to put my OEM hood to. I'm pretty sure it's just the pricing. No one would aim for a F80/F82 that costs above 100k. The car is great for what it is but 100k good? Maybe not. ANd that is coming from someone who's car MSRP was 89k (me). I do like my CA stuff but if I can get the OEM CS tune, i would do it. Did code in the rest of the CS bits (from what I know anyway).

I found out, from what I understand. Rusnak in my area is spinning Alfa Romeo off on their own so, that is why and the reason all of their AR cars are sitting at a location. It is directly across from the new dealership location they are sitting up. However, almost all of those cars are probably still 2018 or early 2019.

Yah sorry, I know they will still build one if somebody orders it, but as the sales show there will probably very few more built. So kind of a limited run.

It's okay! And yeah I think that is about right. To be honest, if the CS released before I ordered my M3, I would have gone into a M3CS with Lime Rock Grey but it came after so....

I ordered my M3 on June 2017 and received car on November 2017 for a 2018 M3 ZCP. I forgot when the M3CS was officially opened but didn't think I was too close. Did get some BMW email asking me to trade up... a 1 year old car lol.


As I am still struggling to figure out what car I want next. A Giulia is apparently $299 for 3 years without downpayment. Now just to compare, my friend is a GM for Honda and I been looking at Accords. Accord for 3 years is close to $400 per month and a Lexus ES350 is like $350 (ish). That just shows how desperate AR is trying to move inventory.

I will say it again though. Aiming for the "car enthusiast" crowd will not sell to the general public. No matter how much crap BMW or Benz get nowadays with them diluting their performance brands, they sell A LOT of them. I do hope BMW does what Benz do though with the AMG GT cars. Think it is about time BMW finally did one too.
