The driver behind the M3 at 3:10 had to be annoyed.

If that thing somehow gets a manual and makes it to the states, I'll overlook that stupid grill and put down a deposit.

Fingers crossed.

Neither of those will happen. And you'd buy it used if they did. :-)

You probably could as a show car or something but it wouldn't be street legal.

However considering they are only planning on making 1000 or so over a few year run odds you could even get your hands on one to import are near nil

I have a deposit down. But it's likely to be coming November 2022...so 18 months to get used to the face.

Most likely because of emissions etc

That's what people said about M2CS and there were plenty available for purchase without preorders required.

Same thing was also said about 1M.

I don't predict it to be that tough to get one at time of release.

But you're right in that it'll be unlikely that BMW puts a manual in it bc that would require them to listen to their core base. If you're going to make it anyway, why not stick a manual in it? I can't give BMW too much of a hard time though, bc it's one of the few companies still making a stick.

Sooo…fingers crossed.

in previous threads covering "why no M3 wagon in the USA?" insiders have indicated the wagon (G21 was designed knowing US market would not be a consideration) will not pass some technicalities of US market crash laws and need a redesign to accommodate.

I know! For some reason, the driver in that unit was not on it nearly as hard as the drivers in other pre-production(?) BMWs that day.

I was hoping the LCI would kill the grill and clean up the design mess because of universal distain from the non-visually impaired.

Here is a palate cleanser - check out the well-defined hood lines and the horizontal character line running through the door handles. BMW could evolve their design language without adopting garbage elements like the new grill.

I am well known as not the greatest fan of the new grilles... but I'd order this in a heartbeat if it came to the US! In black.

The sound of overworked keyboards is unmistakable as hundreds of potential US based buyers are firing up their favorite word processor to petition BMW NA to bring this vehicle across the ocean.

The question: is this vehicle more profitable than X3M / X4M?
