Note: This is NOT Austin Yellow, this color was called Aurum Gold at the time. In fact, this wasn't even an F8x chassis, the concept body was put on a 328i chassis. The windows were blacked out because there was no interior.
Heh, the more you know 😁

congrats. and save the manuals!

im not sure why the take rate is so low in europe other than a majority of the people who are now coming into money were forced to drive manual when they were younger. Here in the US everything has been automatic for a loooong time. Most people can't drive one.

Itís pretty nice with an automatic during rush hour 😊

I started out with manuals but god I love the DCT.
I see why people would want and prefer a manual, but thatís just not me anymore and it seems like more and more turn that way in Europe.

yessir

You can do a driving school in an automatic, but then you can't drive a manual with that licence.

Grats on picking up one of the best looking M car series 😊

The only detail I'm not sure about is the lines on the CF roof, but that might grow on me as it looks subtle yet noticeable 😁

Any modification plans?
H&R HAS Kit and 15mm spacers are already at home waiting for install.

It is. It's an older one that lost its smell a long time ago. I just like the looks of it.

No it's not to be honest... Manual is only such an important thing in US.

Back in Europe we drove manual only for years because we didn't have any good automatic back in the days! Once automatic transmission got better than manuals over the years, we switched to automatic transmission.

US is opposite... You guys started with shitty automatic and now going to manual when Automatic is top of the line...lol

Dude...what is up with the air freshener hanging from your mirror? The only thing that could smell in a new car is the driver.

Relax, the air freshner is old and has lost its smell long ago. I keep it for looks, as it reminds me of older times when I drove tiny sh!tboxes
