Of course, probably one month later just like the M5. Shouldn't the base model be "competition"? Now we are like Mercedes with AMG and AMG S.

Just like the rest, it's a way to squeeze you for another 20k just for software tweaks

A very strong possibility for my next ED, September 2020, a M8 competition when my current F83 ZCP lease is up. Would be my new business car, so price is a non-factor.

More like an animal, as the M5 MxDrive was stunning taking on the slick Ring last week and this technology will be in the M8, just like the upcoming X3M and X4M.

Buyers want exclusivity and are willing to pay for it. It's just one big dick measuring contest.

That's the badge for "Carbon Core" that first debuted on the G11 7 Series.
Carbon fibre is used and integrated into structural components of the chassis.

This is the actual back of a car. Likely a 320d badged up to the hilt.

And they might be toning down the colours on the ///m logos on m performance cars so people aren't confused about what is a true ///M.
