Anyone seeing anything lower than MSRP pricing?
I have placed a deposit but allocations for the m8 comp won't be available until October according to the dealer. I got the 1500 loyalty discount but don't expect anything more than that.

BMW needs to be careful with supply of these. I won't be entirely surprised if they go the way of M3/4 CS - some initial enthusiasm (= buyers) and then they sit on the lots, ultimately seeing crazy discounts and trunk money. The M8 isn't as compromising as the CS but the price range is rarely traveled territory for BMW.

No matter what happens this car will have tonn of discounts. It's only initially people will pay full price. It's already overpriced as it is no way selling at MSRP will last for long.

Oh, I'm not even talking about moving off MSRP - agree it'll at least settle into normal discount ranges (say 8-12%). But the CS's were taken at 30% off at the extreme .

You can't go wrong with either color.

Just scrolled through all the pages. Guess the thread has been ongoing for a couple of months.

I own a M8c and love every minute in it. Is it worth 160k+ I am not sure but who buys bmws these days anyways. Pumped up residuals, some of the lowest Mf end in a very attractive payment. What you get for that payment is very hard to compete. This is my 3rd M back to back and although I wanted to go back to a AMG the lease deals were no where near the M8. Was the Amg a better car? Maybe but not for another 700 bucks a month.

These are all toys for me. Use them and move on. No forever commitment. If you are looking for an investment go by some real estate

Nod, agreed on all points ... except maybe the AMG being a better car. I bought a 2018 E63S and sold it after 8 months ploughing straight back into bimmers. 2 x F90s later and now (well, almost now) an M8 Comp GC and I struggle to want any other car at any other price (OK, I'm exaggerating and I'd probably take a Bugatti but there genuinely isn't much else I want). I test drove the GT63S for a few hours and it's nice--interior is to die for--but the driving dynamics and tech are both more form over function. BMW fan boy? Guilty as charged but not for a lack of trying other brands.

The tech in the M8 is actually newer than the GT63s which is on the last Comand version, pre MBUX.
On a side note, we have MBUX in the GLE and it is on par with iDrive 7 IMO. Voice assistants are both limited and neither is better.
MBUX currently has the best navigation of anyone (augmented reality nav)

Since we have had the E63s and the M8Comp for a couple of months side by side I can say that the M8 offers a faster and smoother driving experience.
The car even sounds decent from the outside (D3, Sport+) but the AMG definitely feels sportier and sounds better and delivers more raw driving experience overall. You feel less insulated from the action.
Really appreciate the M8 but won't dismiss the attraction of the AMG.

That said, the value proposition of the BMW's can't be dismissed. I got a killer deal on the E63s in Nov.2017 where the ED.1's moving at list and up.

10% off with base MF. Now the more expensive M8 lease is so low that over half of the GLE lease is covered just by the savings over the cheaper E63s

Out of curiosity have you test drove (or been in a friend's) Audi? I test drove a RS5 but if ultimately interested I would have waited for the RS7 as although 4 doors like a GC I needed the bigger space in the cabin for my size. I thought the Audi tech was on par with iDrive 7 and perhaps slightly ahead in a couple of areas. I did test drive a C63S which I'm assuming had Comand as it was definitely a notch down on the tech vs iDrive 7 and too small for my size. As stated before though on other threads the bigger loser tech wise was the Lexus LC500 as it is almost a joke in comparison to the Audi and iDrive 7.
