Why would you want bigger wheels for a performance car? Bigger the wheels, more weight.

These are all to subtle for what this car is for. The car is already less aggressive than what was previewed initially.

Because Audi know their owners don't care about steering feel or cornering. BMW still have some chassis engineers.

Sorry, in my humble opinion: This car is not a performance car, but a sporty, luxury long ass coupe. Even the new 911 are half the size of the M8 and come with 21 inch wheels in the rear and these 911 are way more performance oriented than the M8 (and I really like BMW).
For a big ass heavy car like this there should be a 21 inch option.

Some good bits here

The front end is better with the carbon kidneys and lower spoiler lips to my eyes. Thank goodness for them not coming out with a garish sticker kit.

The wheels continue to disappoint. Surely they can do better!?!

Forged carbon? I thought it was some cheesy marble effect.

the front bumper is lacking any sort of drama, just like the interior..could be mistaken for m-sport.
