The only thing Sony make that works properly is the PS4, well that's my experience of the company anyway to date

Its going to be a sportscar. Its even official, that it is gointo be smaller than the old 6 series due to save weight.
Lol, don't trip man, this thing ain't gonna touch the 911, or AMG GT. Maybe an Aston Martin, but it won't look as special as one.

while BMW interiors are ergonomic and of decent quality I don't understand their reluctance to move onto a different design that is more modern and appealing. This interior design is getting old.
Exterior wise the new design language of the z4 and the z8 is is gorgeous.

Agreed. Looks like a move down slightly height wise, but not fully flush. Still a stuck in screen rather than flush into the dash. I like it more though than ... a floater.

Sony are nothing like as good as 20 years ago. I've never had a good Sony smart phone and gave up on them, my not old Sony android TV resets itself randomly and fails to load apps 50% of the time and my Sony sound bar cuts randomly. My mother's Sony smart TV of yesteryear was incredibly slow to load anything including normal channels. PS3 CPU cooler paste dried up so overheats. Statistically not likely to be a coincidence that so many items were a bit shite.

PS4 and my old 40" dumb TV are the only Sony products I'd rate as reliable.

EDIT I forgot one of the PS4 controller's batteries is knackered

Anyway I apologise

Those wheels on the 8er stopped at the gas station were downright sexy.

Of that was M8 I have hope for competition M5 wheels

To "rip" an S class coupe the Bmw should at least get rid of the B-pillar. But it is still there....

Did you notice that the M8 in the video has the same exhaust note as the new M5 and not the exhaust note of the M8 that sounded amazing months ago at the reveal (video below)



How can they go from that amazing sound above to the M5 exhaust note

Probably because looking at the tips it's an 850 not the M8.

Yeah, maybe a wee bit harsh. But trusting the marketing speak of a car company employee seems like a sure fire way to set yourself up for disappointment.

And name one good, competitive large BMW. No generation of 7er, 6er or Z8/8er has been anywhere near competitive with Porsche or MB options.

So does making buying decisions based off of vehicles in Camo.. but you know.. some people do..

Does the 5 series count as a large BMW ? What about the X5M ? inquiring minds want to know!

So let me just check.. what Mercedes model was it that just absolutely tromped the E24 six series? (I ask because I don't know Merc models that well)
