Hey everybody,

I just created my account to share with you my spy shots of the new F92.

Shots were taken in Aspen, two weeks ago.

I don't think those are the final production/version seats. But perhaps SCOTT26 has something to say on the subject ?

The center console appears to be a lot more toned down than the concept photo... guess that's always inevitable.

The seats look like the standard 3 or 4 Series seats. Definitely not >100k EUR Coupe. It does not make sense to make any more judgements cause it is still a prototype. But somehow the silhouette looks IMO like a new 6 Series rather than 8 Series. I wonder how much larger than F12/F13 6 Series it is gonna be.

Well ya know those dash vents have to actually push enough air to cool/warm the occupants instead of actually just looking cool.

Makes sense to use current production seats for the prototype as it would be difficult to cover.

What's up with the front apron, looks like it is built out from the front with a sweeping white air scoop behind.

That's for posting! Should of ripped some of the front camo off

I think BMW needs to do something with their interior design... it's looking dated. Like they got stuck in an era of the F10 5 series and refuse to leave. New cars like MBZ, Tesla, Volvo, even the new Prius are using large screens as central theme around the dash. Every new BMW interior looks like a generic lease and not like something you'd want to own. I mean it looks "nice" but that's about it.

Just "nice" is what I expect from an Accord with leather though. Not a car of this caliber.

Agreed. BMW base seats suck. A C300 has more aggressive bolstering than that. And I'd rather take the cloth in my GTi than Dakota leather any day.

Base Porsche leather not much better, though.

Impressive to see some interior pics at this stage.
As usual, it is early, letīs no get ahead of ourselves, the 8 should be special, the F13 was and the 8 should be even more so.
