WTF is wrong with BMW?! It may have worked okay on the IS-F, but this interpretation is awful.

Far too soon for CSL type stuff that is 2-3 years away perhaps at least.

For me, refreshing to see a different approach and it would certainly be more visible that you'd gone down the M Perforamance route now.
The M4GTS was released less than 2 years after the M4 (Oct-2015 vs Dec-2013). IMO, it's not that early to see M4CSL prototypes.

Did you..... just include the sales of Toyota in that Lexus number?

Here let me fix that for you:

We have a 2016 M4 with a custom Eisenmann exhaust that exits at the same location for sale at my dealership.

The car only has 500 miles on it. So many extras I don't know where to begin.

I don't think I can mention the dealership on here but I can tell you it's in the state capital of Illinois.

If nothing else take a look at it.

I think people buy Toyota/Lexus for reasons other than looks. People buy bland/ugly looking cars if they are reliable and get them from point a to point b.

IMO Porsche and Audi just have a better platform to build on for the future hybrid sports car world. The cars just look like they are meant to be part electric. BMW is left scrambling. No clue where they are going stylistically.

Sad, after riding in BMWs since the 80s I may be looking around sooner than later....

Unless like someone else said, we get the G81, then I’ll come back with my tail between my legs, deposit in hand.

Intriguing, I would have expected a much larger wing and wider skirts on the CSL. Maybe an early mule with mainly a regular M4 body.

Think they took the inspiration from the wrong specific vehicle in their back catalogue haha. Not sure how they manage to come up with these design choices, but really, i'm not surprised anymore
