No air suspension, no rear axles turning. Bye bye M8GC. Stick with my Panamera Turbo.

$13k for this?

LOLZ

Getting really tired of the BMW Competition tax.

Personally I just moved away from the brand for my Sports car addiction. In analyzing the value proposition, I chose another Porsche. To get the top tune/spec BMW you are paying out the nose over a base product that is not that much different.

COMPETITION MODEL

0.1 seconds faster 0-60 than standard model
17 hp more than standard model
260 rpm wider torque band
Stiffer engine mounts
M Sport Exhaust
Firmer suspension
Increased front negative cambe
Rear toe-link ball-joints instead of rubber bushings
Unique 20" forged M light-alloy wheels with a gloss-milled 3D structure and bicolor design
Additional Track Mode setting
M seatbelts with highlight stitching in BMW Motorsport colors

It looks good, has that 6GC style which I still prefer - the new technology I am sure is worth it alone. These wheels don't scream M - I miss the old M 343s, and of course the comp versions - which is the only reason I bought the comp to begin with....

Underwhelming to say the least. The outgoing M6GC was a stunner. This would be background noise at best when parked next to an RS7 or AMG GT63S, and FWIW I don't even like those cars.

The 2 door M8/8er variants look way better and that's probably why the Coupe and Convertible cost $3k and $12k respectively more than the grancoupe.

Sadly this has the adjustable brakes like the new M8 which offer no goldilocks setting, but rather too firm or too soft like most reviews are stating.

I love it! Now this vs the RS6 avant/7 should be a real conundrum.

I saw the M850i Gran Coupe in the showroom when I picked up my car from service about 10 days ago. It is indeed a gorgeous package and the full blown Ms should be even better in person. That said, for $140-150k, hands down 992S stripper model with enough change leftover for a (relatively) pedestrian American SUV, heavily discounted of course.
