Black Sapphire Metallic (BSM) G80 M3 in the snow

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Seems to be two little plastic splitters on the bumper similar to the F80. I didn't see this on pre production models.

Looks great, it almost looks like Tanzanite blue to me? Thanks for sharing.

Gotta admit, it took a VERY long time, but it is growing on me a bit. This one looks pretty lean and mean.

So badass and so great to see it in BSM (my fave "live with every day" color). I want one so badly but the diff between F80 and G80 isn't big enough for me (manual) to pay the "upgrade" cost.

Prioritizing an RS6 as the next car in next 12 months and hoping to add a BSM G82 to the mix in a few years.

Looking forward to seeing if an LCI adds enough tech/features to justify swapping out the F80 for a manual G80.

Front fenders are wide. Never noticed how wide they are until now.

I don't mind the look of the car, sure it's busy and you can't convince me that this grill is better than the smaller grills of past, but the silhouette still looks good. I wouldn't ever describe it as lean looking though, it looks quite heavy and blocky.

It looks really good. Not as good as the F87, but good. But it has 4 doors, so good enough.

Front is growing on me in dark colors. Feel like she needs to go on a quick cut for that rear. Taillights are really starting to bother me. LExus vibes

Honestly... This screams IS-F to me. As a Lexus, I like it. As a Bimmer, nope. No thanks.

Anyone know what tires are on this car? It says Michelin, maybe it's doing some sort of winter testing for the X-Drive variant for 2022? Just seems a little late to throw some winter tires on a production car that's going into customer's hands by the end of the month.

Always thought it looked sexy.
Never understood those that bash something right off the bat, and then "come around". Change is tough and all, but still.

Also interested in the tires and what they are. The amount of snow in the pictures is rather ominous.

Maybe there are visual queues that this is a AWD model.

I'm really liking the G80 m3 refer less of the nostrils and nay sayers. It looks so good in Black. And my F30 already has MXDRIVE

Looks really good/aggressive. BSM is definitely the best color for G80.

We've seen other G80 with Michelin Pilot Alpin 5 so I think that is the OEM tire.
