After weighing all the options, I ended up going 981 GT4. We'll see what the C8 Z06 brings in a few years.

Selling my F80 M3. It's really my Wife's car and she doesn't drive it much. I will probably get another GT-R. It's just on a completely different level (2 levels?) in every way, except rear seat room. I track a lot and my M3 was always too slow.

Iíve considered jumping ship but ultimately realized I would only be doing it just for the sake of change. Not because the cars Iíve considered are better. Iíve looked at the LCI Audi S4, but realized Iím just not an Audi person. Iíve looked at the Alfa QV but too afraid of getting stranded somewhere from a mechanical/electrical problem.

I do like the LCI M5 but not sure I can get myself to spend that much on a car.

I will be keeping my F80 for a while. I just moved it to daily driver duty and will be covering almost 20k a year. I had every intention of doing ED on a G80, but now that the program is gone I donít care to upgrade unless the G80 is really off the charts. ED was a huge factor in my reasoning but at the price point itís most likely going to be at, Iíd rather have a 911.

That being said, since I am not fond of the way BMW is headed, I think Iíll be moving away from the brand entirely if I donít move to a G80.

Def not buying the new M4, I'm completely out on the new design. Looking like an AMG C63S or the new Vette pretty soon.

Cheers

F8X is Albert Biermann's swan song at BMW.

Every M fan should watch this presentation.



A huge engineering target approved by the board was making the F8X lighter than the previous generation M or the E9X. A highly unusual approval given this day and age of increasing emission regulations and consumer pressure to iPhone-ize the automobile.

It's quite clear what the engineering targets WERE NOT with the incoming G series. Pls be discerning. Don't pay any mind to all the lazy YouTube influencer and review channel shills.

Hug your F8X today.

I watched this before I got the car. This convinced me to explore the F8x. I thought that BMW had learned their lesson with the E9x (durability and weight wise). Sad, and in total agreement with you. The G8x is clearly going back to the trend of weight gain and shifting away from that motorsport focus that Biermann brought to the F8x. I really don't care how much the look grows on me. Its just never going to be in my consideration for the next fun car.

This one is another gem.



I'm a fan of his. A recent interview.

Keeping my F80 M3 as well as my Model 3 Performance. Will be adding a Cybertruck into the group as I like to keep all the electric cars the same. Also have a CRV and a Rav 4 in the pack.
