I'm actually impressed that there's not much difference in price between base- and full-spec.

I know I'm in the minority, but I love that there's an option for chrome exterior trim on the M-Sport model. Granted its packaged with a "BMW Individual" package, but I hope this trickles down to more models. Carbon black with chrome trim looks soooo good.

the options combos are still a bit funky. For example, the cooling package can ONLY be outfitted with a particular 20 inch wheel.

Ok I see. I saw the price in the pricing sheet. Plus configurator doesn't do payment calculations either.

Hard to find a configuration where it looks good! Generic big BMW.

AMG GT and 911 a far more desirable cars.

Agreed. I don't get the hype, either...

Spot-On

Take away the creative financing and see how many of these, plus most of the others in BMWs lineup sell.

As much as I want to disagree I can't. Perhaps the M8 will change my mind but at this price a GT or 911 is clearly a better choice.

But the ///M8 will hit 911 Turbo, GT3, AMG GTS, and McLaren 570 prices.

Now we need an M8 and for the price to drop by half on these cars after 1 year as CPO or Auto trader.

BMW need to come up with better looking standard exterior colors in their entire lineup... but definitely on a car that starts north of $100K

I'm disappointed at the lack of good exterior colors... they need to take a cue from Merc or even volvo
