Again, only dumping one car for the same car (with drive train change) says volumes.

Woah!
With such a variety of M cars, I would say you have a vast amount of experience and knowledge as far as the driving dynamics for each one.

To hear that your continually excited to get into the car and push it harder I think hits the nail on the head of what I want to feel when buying this car . So I appreciate you taking the time to say it ! That’s a very positive review .
Aventurine red looks absolutely awesome - I’m not sure why this color isn’t much more popular .

Coming directly from the F80 and into a g80, Iím sure your response will be read by many who have been curious about making the same move - It seems the M DNA has only improved . Thatís a great shot of your car- looks very tough!

Well its a 2022 color I think and production is very slow for a myriad of issues. Plus, its rather polarizing as some dont like how dark it is when there is limited lighting. I love it.

I almost checked the box on this color and changed my mind because I never had an opportunity to see one in person. The more I see you pictures the more I wish I had the color.

If someone was to ask me would you like to sell it for a profit, I probably would and wouldn't mind waiting for another one. I'm guessing it's because it might be lacking personality or I haven't had much seat time yet. I have ordered an air intake kit, and the full Remus catback exhaust and I'm hoping that would wake it up.

I may be crazy but at times I do walk into my garage just to look and admire the car.
Turn your traction mode down to 3.

I had the same feeling up until just the other day.

I honestly grew to hate the car.

I was shopping for m2c's again and a friend of mine suggested turning the traction down before I give up on it.

Now the car and I are just fully connected and it does everything I ask and a little extra.

I swear it's the golden ticket for theses cars.
So, I'm confused. Isn't the 1-10 traction control (M Drive Professional) only a factor when you're in full RWD mode? Or, are you saying that, even in AWD, the dialing up or down of the traction control (1-10) STILL affects the car?

In other words….if I strictly drive in 4WD or 4WD Sport, will the 1-10 traction variability still have the affect you're referring to?
