G80 it's brand new so it better blow the competition out of the water. At least mechanically.

Styling is more personal preference and a totally different story.

Interior and exterior, the M is the least attractive car in the comparison, followed by the Giulia. At least with the others, there is some angle that is appealing. The M just sucks from every angle. Can't get to performance if I have to get myself to like the styling. Such a disappointment.

Interesting how c63s was that close, I would chose f80 over it by driving excitement and fun to drive.
I guess extra weight of g80 gives it a bit of porky feeling

It's all subjective
E60 m5 and it's I drive we deemed ugly

Yet two years later all manufacturers started making i drive type controllers

Now e60 m5 is very desirable

I'm not a big fan of g80 exterior, it's radical and it takes some getting used to.
Interior is killer by all means and in comparison to other models.

Have you seen one in person? It's very nice stance and overall solid looks. They are not Audi like, on purpose. U want old boring classic looks get Toyota or Honda

If BMW had gone evolutionary instead revolutionary on the front end we would've had world class knockout punch in all regards. And this is before the AWD version even gets released...

I think BMW was good to shake it up completely. I personally had grown bored of the F8X, and the 8 and new 3 were uninspiring.

Yes the M3's front end is bad design, but at this point I'm used to it and it's not the end of the world. BMW really did its homework with the G20 chassis and clearly did it with the G8X as well. I have no doubt it not only excels on a technical level but also at a driver engagement level.

For those of us who want a lighter, smaller, more engaging, and more traditionally-styled car, the next M2 will be available in a hair under two years.

Pretty impressed it beat that V8. High hopes it'll outperform the upcoming C63 as well. Way to go BMW.

To each their own. I thought Id hate it based on photos, and still am not sold on the M4 (though the convertible looks better), but having seen several M3s in person now I think that car looks fantastic inside and out (especially the white/black interior with carbon buckets).

I love Bimmers but really can't get with this one, that's no reason to start telling people to GTFO from behind your keyboard...grow up.

Everyone here has had 100 M3s and 1000 BMWs.

But that doesnt give anyone reason to troll car forums of cars they have no interest in. Im not going to go cruising into the 6 series GT forum talking about how big of a POS it is.

F80 is a complete package - daily drivability plus performance - at the right price point. It's a winner.
