Does anybody else here see that the steering wheel in the MT car appears to have paddle shifters?

The wheel in the picture below has the new style M1/M2 paddles (with black tape over them), but there also seems to be a large plastic gear-change paddle behind the wheel.

The seats look phenomenal! Almost an enhanced version of the old performance seats.

Seats look great.

Am I the only one who thinks that the center console, surrounding the iDrive controller looks overly busy in the modern BMWs?

I liked the E9x LCI update to the iDrive and limited number of surrounding buttons. Very simple and stylish.

Now it just looks like a soundboard or laptop computer keyboard. Very unappealing IMO. Kind of reminds me of the dashboard of the old AMGs with the useless full telephone keys.

Agreed looks terrible with all the buttons. I'm just imagining how all that black paint will wear and peel from use just like the E9x I drive.

Hmmm itís nice to see the Manual box, but do they have to use the same gearknob theyíve used since the e46?!

A manual box can look sexy as well BMW!!

Iím not a huge fan overall of the Gxx interior, plain boring doors, unnatractive console around the shifter. Screens instead of gauges.

Iím not being ďthat guyĒ here, I just donít see much progress, with the exception of those gorgeous optional seats.

New design is nice, but I do agree that the F-Series M wheel was a very good looking and nicely thick wheel. I do think BMW should start differentiating interior parts more. M cars deserve some more special design touches, especially when a $150k+ M8 can have the same interior touches of a $40k 3-series.

If you notice the roof has lines that are obvious from the back but I can't tell if they continue all the way to the front? This will be sweet if it's similar to what my Z4M Coupe roof lines!

The steering wheel I'm not too crazy about but what bothers me the most is that same 6MT gear knob.

Side note: How can you not option for those bucket seats? They're insane.
