Don't understand BMW's logic in placing cheap plastic buttons on a $100K+ vehicle.

This car is amazing standing still. Sat in one at RALLYE (NYC). First thing you noticed is the closeness, as if BMW gave you just enough space. Like a glove.

Secondly, my only gripe is that I prefer the sunroof.

Everything is electronic.

I think that sales of M850ix are very low and that BMW need to make M850ix more interesting ..so they released FIRST EDITION ,3 months after release...that does not make any sense...something is very strange.

Wow! The glass shifter thing is cool...but agrees with others, wait for the purer M8


Cheers,

I am an enthusiast and I think it is special. It is the most dynamic design BMW offered in a long time. I am a Porsche guy and have had all the 911 models until the 997 but today the 8 stole my heart. Yesterday I ordered a loaded 840i and could not be happier. I am keeping my 911 turbo but at the same time am truly exited to be able to own the 8 series. It is really special. If this design would have come from Aston, Maserati or Ferrari with of course the according front and rear this basic design would be heralded as the 'best ever'. Now it is 'just' a BMW and the haters are gonna hate. I don't care, I love it and
BMW did a great job, period !!!

I went for the 840i as the BMW DNA is inline 6 and power will be plenty.
To me a BMW with an inline 6 is just what I want. This month I will turn 54 and it feels like I will be getting the 635 CSi I was longing for in my early twenties.

I feel very fortunate to be able to afford this new BMW!

The 840i S-drive and X-drive are on the order list of BMW in Europe now.
Not yet online but on the dealers configurator they are.
List price in Belgium for the RWD, which I ordered (production July), is 79.834,71 Euro without tax.
