There is no reason they couldn't have kept the concept elements. Other than reducing cost and complexity. The carbon attachment on the side intakes seems like an afterthought and a missed opportunity.

Too bad pricing didn't leak with it.

Car looks great overall but not a fan of the checkered pattern on the center of the seats.

gorgeous, but the badge placement is odd definitely asking to be de-badged

Well, awesome car. However, not liking the spoiler or wheels. Trying a bit too hard when it doesn't have to. Distracts my eyes from the lines of the car and it's otherwise powerful presence.

The rear looks great and so does the interior (minus the weird color choice), but to me the front doesn't seem any more agressive than the m850i. I wish they kept the larger intakes from the concept, hopefully it isn't too late to change this

Looks great, but not as aggressive as I would expect from the M8, let alone M8 Competition.

Front bumper looks flat, bland and underwhelming with these black bits closing off 1/3 of the air intakes.

Honestly not a big gan of it. This might be the first M I'm not liking more than the regular model.

They tried too hard with the rear, this looks more like an aftermarket solution, not much class in it. The front bumper looks kinda flat, not agressive enough and the carbon parts aren't doing it any favour in terms of looks. The wheels are absolutely not my taste (it may look better in silver though, but I definitely hate them in black). But I hope there will be other wheel options, at least for the regular M8.
