Oh and one more thing, which I'll get flamed for; I'm really not getting why so many people are banging on about the X3M, but then again I don't like SUVs in general.

I'm sure the people that buy them (or X5/6M) like it very much, but why have a hulking great thing carrying extra weight with a high centre of gravity and then waste a good engine on it? What exactly is the point of it, is it 4-wheel drive or supposed extra room? Sorry, but get a proper M car or not at all...
What do you mean? The E46 was released with two ///M specific colors (LSB and PY); the F82 as well (..YMB and AY). For the E9X it might've been two as well (IB and another color)

Yeah, the BRG + tan combo is a bit stiff upper lip, you know country mansion, stables, servants vibe for me. Doesnít match the M3 persona. Btw, Iím currently chilling listening to ďThe twilight sadĒ, stellar band!

All I want to know is if the vehicles in the states are getting the optional CF buckets.. I'll take any color as long as I can get that option.

It's going to be hard going from red interior back to something basic like black but When it comes to having CF buckets from the factory all bets are off I'll take it.

That’s true but a pity since the grill is old news to me, it’s uncovered now and was well rendered before that by yourself and others. Now I’m looking for as accurate pre-views as possible (minimal distortion, accurate design elements etc) of the M4 as a whole in production colors using the latest lightly camouflaged pictures as basis.

Thanks for these fantastic rear view renders, they are ace!

But using that horrid leaked uncovered M4 picture to get an idea if the new M4 is to your liking is like a model agency using this picture to promote a model, all design elements are there but you have little clue what it/she actually looks like:

Nothing there that floats my boat. I do kind of expect the "M" colour to be unique rather than the same as the rest of the 3/4 series.

I mean how many more Porto Blue, Sapphire black, Tanz blue, Dravit grey, do we need?

Isle of Man and Sau Paolo don't do it.

At launch (SOP 09/2000), the E46 M had the following M colors:
Imola Red II, Laguna Seca Blue, Carbon Black, Phoenix Yellow

The E9x M had the following M colors at launch (SOP 05/2007):
Silverstone II, Interlagos Blue, Jerez Black, Le Mans Blue

For the F8x, at launch:
Sakhir Orange, Silverstone II, Austin Yellow, Yas Marina Blue.

Granted, it's arguable whether Carbon Black and Le Mans Blue can be considered 'M-specific' but that's besides the point as they were colors available at launch for the respective generations from M GmbH's color palette nonetheless.

Still, I certainly remember the F8x being critiqued by some for not offering a wide enough selection of proper primary colors at launch (blue was smurf, 'red' was orange-ish, yellow was mustard, etc.)

For the G8x, the confirmed colors thus far seem to address the shortcomings of the initial F8x color offerings, with a proper red (Toronto), green (Isle of Man), two shades of blue (Tanzanite & Portimao), a bright yellow (Sao Paolo), and your White/Black/Grey for everyone else.

I'm in a MGM F82 now and love it but looking for something brighter next go around. If Toronto was a deeper, darker red I'd definitely jump. As it stands, Sao Paolo is the front runner.

With regard to the front end styling - I'll forgive GmbH. Clearly a deal with the devil has been made. Engineering sufficient to put 510hp down safely in trade for a fugly front end.

Park distance control is a must. I'll be pulling straight into the garage and won't be stopping until the red zone warnings reach crescendo.

Talking from the island where 2 cm of snow stops everything...

Come in Canada. You will see why...
Except if you want to drive that thing 3 months per year and get an SUV for winter.
Or, drive an M SAV and have both cars in one all year round ...

I wish they would do away with Alpine white. So many other beautiful versions of White to offer IMO. Why offer an M car with the standard BMW loaner car color?

Because many cheap ass buyers don't want to pay $550 for paint

That's the biggest reason

I agree here. Of course there is no similarity regarding the design language, but for example these black parts (skirts, diffusor etc.) are overstyled and look like some aftermarket parts, there definitely is a Civic Type R vibe. With the earlier M cars I always liked that they avoided that, but it still looked sporty and special (unlike AMG, where certain parts looked ricey IMHO).
