Traded 2019 M5 Comp on a fully loaded M8 convertible! All options but night vision and ccb. Motegi red with full midrand beige. Came with Carbon fiber package and I added carbon grill. Was disappointed seats don't have ability to flex in backrest like M5 and doesn't have the mediocre massage. Also mine doesn't have gesture control like M5 albeit gimmicky.
Seems snappier than M5 and M5 had racechip. Unfortunately it does have Pirelli's. Already added BMC filters and removed charcoal filter. Ppf added.
I'm in love!

Congrats on your new whip! Post some pics!

This is the first I heard about the gesture control; we have that in the coupe. Must be a convertible thing...

I was surprised by it not being available as well. No reference in hard copy manual or digital concerning gesture control either. Puzzling.

Strange - My M850i (2019) Coupe has gesture controls. Maybe it needs a roof to work properly?

Rear view mirror doesn't have a camera either. Maybe mine's unique. Lol
Car is amazing. Had 2017 S 63 AMG convertible before M5 and feel M8 is more to my taste. AMG 63 4 door was too stiff for me and my wife threatened divorce if I bought the new Bentley convertible!!!
Also ride quality is way above M5 comp.

hilsman congratulations! yes gesture control is N/A in the convertible. I agree with your comments on the seat adjustments but like you am loving my slightly slower car!

Gesture control requires a sensor buried in the roof, of which we 8 series convertible owners don't have one - a solid roof, that is.
