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.

I sorta miss the days when an ///M car was only offered in a couple flavors and it was the epitome of BMW engineering.

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.

Wondering if they might be using a fake soft top on some of the mules to make them all look like verts
? But doesn't look that way just really really trying to hide the new coupe profile?

Also I spy the 19inch front, 20 inch rear wheel setup that had been shared by our insider

based on the fact that there is camo not only on the side glass but also on the rear glass UNDER the top... I would say.. yes.. I think they probably are ..
