As much as I would like to see it, I think he would have said G8X if it were a true slip.

Does anyone think that the new M8 coupe needs more aggressive/wider wheels and tires set up?? They look skinny in my opinion.

I know that these will sell like hot cakes and that is what matters to BMW as a company. But what does that tell me about BMW as far as a place for enthusiasts?

It's not only that, but also their hideous looking EVs. How come that Audi is the one to put out a sporty and good looking EV and we're stuck with the iNext. This isn't fair
Sadly times have changed and SUVs are getting the M treatment over small and fun enthusiast roadsters. In the early 2000's I joked that an X5 M would be a crazy idea and here it is. Sadly the SUV-apocalypse is taking over and has just taken another vehicle from us (3 series wagon won't return to US). As for the Z4, I'm pretty sure the only reason we actually got one again was because Toyota wanting a Supra and they put in the money to build the Z4s and Supras. BMW doesn't want to spend the money (I don't blame them), but maybe a short run period/limited edition Z4 M's wouldn't be a bad idea. Its a sad day when more people buy X5 M's than Z4's.

It's the same antiquated engine from 2009. 10 years from now if they still have V8 powered M cars they'll come with a tuned S63tuabcedfgh and call it a new 'reworked' engine.

The leaked m8 should have a much wider butt than 850i with 265, 21' and 315, 21'wheels on. It looks too tamed.

It looks like they could have fit some more GERMANCAR4UM watermarks in there. Super annoying.
