Looks good but a bit too tame. Looking forward to seeing these in some individual colors.

Looks really nice.

Needs tint on the front windows and painted reflectors in the back big time.

Needs a much more aggressive rear diffuser setup with quad pipes. But better looking in the mouth with that REASONABLY sized black grill. I've seen a coupe in person and it looks so much better.

Personally, I still can't put it above the M6GC— those F06 body lines are just too good.

Unfortunately I hate this about it. Why doesn't it come to a point??? It would be absolutely beautiful. I was so excited for this car and this nearly ruins it for me. Only color I would consider is black... just to hide this design flaw.

The Hofmeister Kink seems all but gone. What a shame.

Fair point. Though it's still technically a bastardized "M" car.

Rear needs to be a little more aggressive. Looks too similar to other BMWs.

Maybe a more aggressive diffuser?

This is essentially its replacement. They wanted to make something with a bigger price tag.. so they put an 8 on it..

Word on the street is that 8 series coupe has been axed along with 6 series GT so perhaps this leaves room for a reverse pivot back to 6 in the future

Well I guess BMW is much to greedy and sadly that might completely blow up in their face.
