Less weed whacker sounding. That's the biggest takeaway from that video.

As far as styling, guess you can't have everything with M3/4s these days.

S55 will go down as the worst sounding M in history, period!

I think they removed some of the camo body panels. Car is looking pretty good. It will look much better than the renders. BMW looks better in person than on pictures. They are hard to shoot. Really would be happy with an M3 and a Cayenne Turbo Hybrid S w dual screens in back.

Could be. Or ROW OPF car. Several different cars going around the track in different configurations.

Aside from the M4 GTS getting same shape but different OLED illumination, I don’t think any M vehicle had lights that are different from series production. Right?

Gotta disagree there. While the S54 is no swan song stock, the S55 is absolutely terrible in comparison. Even more so when you consider that no aftermarket setup can help the S55 exhaust sounds whereas there are some combinations that make the S54 sing.

You're correct. They've been identical to their non-M counterparts all through history, only being updated with life cycle changes. The sole exception being the M4 GTS' OLED taillights.

I will get on the agree train here too. Enough is enough. Either drop some camouflage or debut it. This is just agonizing to me waiting for the unveil.
I. Just. Want. To. See it.

We all know there will be even more hype once the unveil is done. At least then we can argue on seats, leather, lighting, shift knobs, steering wheels and digital dash.

I agree that the S55 sounds no worse than the S54, not that I personally dislike either.

I do like my stock S55 sound. Sue me, Internet people!
