Awesome color choice! A little bit surprised that its your first BMW and you chose a heritage/legendary color. I suppose you've seen a few E46 M3s in the past?

Of all the M8s I've seen, this is probably the best looking one since LSB suits it very nicely. Very aggressive!

Beautiful color for sure, but a bit underwhelming in all black leather.

Congrats !!

And nice back story on how hard you worked to get it too. Many people don't always realize how hard many us work to have nice things, so congrats again and it's very nice ride.

Cheers,
Merlin

I understand the parallel as it's been pointed out since the 8-series launch. However, ironically on a trip to the grocery store last week as I parked out in space there were 2 Ford Mustangs in the same area of the lot (all cars including my M850i at least 5 spaces apart ). On the Mustang front this included the latest gen as well as the prior gen.

As I walked back out to the car, both Mustangs were still there. So I had an opportunity to compare the M850i to the current gen Mustang and although one can argue they have an overall similar shape they are indeed very different. The 8-series is sleeker no questions asked and has better overall sculpted body lines.

I'm certain in person this car looks amazing and probably little like a Mustang.

Stumbled across your IG and saw you're also sober too. Congrats on the purchase, makes it a little more meaningful!
