If any minor complaint it would be that the leather quality of the sock could be a few grades higher when matched with the merino full leather.

If it weren't for the sh*t reliability and lack of dealers I'd take one.
Don't know what you are talking about. I have driven the Quadrifoglio twice and my F80 Comp is better planted than the Alfa. Its also about 1 - 1,5 sec faster on a 1.30 track. I would never change my car into the Quadrifoglio even if it would have same quality. And quality wise you can't even compare these 2 cars.

This is why I take forum complaints with less than a grain of salt. Complainers are never satisfied.

It's so offensive to us real bmw fans who know that bmw should never change anything from the arbitrary point in history I have chosen as the perfect state of the brand.

Looks a lot like the M8 to me, which would make sense from a design consistency perspective.

Imagine owning both an 850CSi and an F13 M6. My argument is that one is the only WBS chassis V12 and the other is the most powerful RWD M ever and both are met with utter derision in some groups.

Wtf

So, when looking at the optional "Sport Bucket" Seats, no one noticed this? Looks like a leg separator with gloss black trim on top???

Would be cool if it was meant to accommodate a proper 5pt harness. Not that anyone would ever install one.

So we've seen the standard front seats and the optional CF seats, but shouldn't we expect some kind of in-between seats (ex. would come with the Competition package)? The standard seats appear to be very basic and I'll be surprised if the only option is to upgrade to the CF version which are pretty much racing seats.

They might do the same as they did with the X3 M and use the regular sports seats (in the non-M models) as the base seat, and offer the seats we've been seeing in spy shots as the competition seat, and the carbon fiber one being optional. It would make sense as the current X3 and 3er use the same seats.

What about these X3M seats?
