So is there an actually M8 coming out like the M2 versus the M240i or is the M850i the pinnacle. "M8" just sounds so badass!

Funny thing about the laser lights that hardly NO ONE knows about is they are basically never on. The driver has no control of when they come on and they will pretty much only work on back roads with no lights around. Also get them now before they are no longer offered cause there are rumblings of them not doing laser anymore in the states.

I like Matt, but come on mate, BMW gave you 840d, you drove it for months, then they gave you M850i, and you went with that car to test tesla and say that model 3 could be your favourite car so far, I'd be pissed if I was BMW.

I get what you're saying but nobody is cross shopping the two. If he was given an M340i then sure!

It's not about cross shopping, I don't consider tesla in BMW Class at all, and don't consider them competitors, it's about brand giving you flagship model to enjoy, and you use it to go and test another brand's car and declare it your favourite. I was gonna tweet him about it, but then I thought, if BMW saw it, he could loose BMW access, so I didn't do it, I still like his reviews.

This is my experience, I can't tell the difference between them and my old X6 LEDs. Even when it is dark now, there are too many cars for them to go on beam!
