Skyscraper Grey? I flip between that and Portimao Blue. Build goes in next week so only a few more days of panic left.

Thanks for the review. What I really wanted was an explanation of the ten stage traction control and how it can be used in RWD mode and you delivered. Seems pretty easy to set the car up the car for AWD and RWD on each M button.

I wish this car had a manual option. I love rowing gears in snow and ice, it would/could/should have been epic IMVHO -

But I'm leaning towards skyscraper because it's classic and will look good for many years, plus will be easy to maintain!

Nice video!

Thank you for your review OP. Great review, you hit the nail on the head as far as the car is concerned; and I agree all the above as an 911 and R8 owner.

Now you've got me wanting to swap my manual RWD to a Comp X Drive

Also, Tartufo is gorgeous.

Also, my dude, get a GoPro - it will dramatically improve your video qual (especially with image stabilization) for ~$350.

Nice color, Skyscraper Gray kinda looks like Space Gray with a new name tbh, I wonder how similar they are, since Space, once a staple color in the BMW stable, seems to be retired now.

Excellent review! Care to do a deeper comparison with some of the other interesting cars you’ve owned (718 Spyder, R8)?

Skyscraper is a little colder and a bit more metallic in the sun it seems like from my online-only impressions.

Good vid.

The dark 825Ms and Tartooofo look terrific on Skyscraper.

I think Skyscraper is more like silver. Kinda reminds of the E46 M3 CSL color.
