Muffler needs to be bigger and lower, I am disappoint. Hopefully they redeem themselves with some properly large grilles unlike the apologetic ones on the 7 LCI and X7.

Still bummed about the loss of the hard top.

I suspect the weight saving from going back to soft top will be disappointing. And I'm sure there will be no cost reduction either...

Finally BMW got a clean looking rag-top just like Porsches. In the past all rag tops looked really weird with supporting beams poking out underneath.

I think the rag tops look nice on the Boxster and 911 because the cars are small/relatively small. Always thought they looked a bit strange on larger cars - hard to tell how it will really look with all this camo, but I wonder because the G83 will be even bigger than the F83.

I hope my eyes are deceiving me but I see a silhouette of a massive kidney grill behind the camo.

Not gonna happen... stick with an M2C

Regardless of what the "purists" cry for, most buyers use the M3/M4 as daily drivers.

Thought I saw posted a while back that the G8x M3/4 will come with 19" Front, 20" Rear wheels.

There are so many models now I feel it's just not as special as it used to be.
Slipping??

I will drive my next M car mostly in congested city and occasionally on track so I prefer ZF8AT.

I wish this would happen but I'm just crossing my fingers and hoping they'll still put 6MT in the G80/G82 at this point.
