FraMkensteiM. It is the latest display of horror design of bmw. Tacky, overdone. People will still buy it unfortunately.

I'm sure it's fun to drive, but everyone on the road hates you... and it's soooo ugly. Plus, from my experience, the Bimmer community sucks. I'd rather have a Cayman or C8 over that any day.

I also think it's an age appropriate type of car. I see Ms, in particular M2s, owned by 20-35y olds. I'm past that so even less of a fit for me.

@lion shf why not a used F8X? Mine will be up for sale in a year.

My girl loves it and it would solve a HUGE problem. I’d no longer have to road-trip in my wife’s POS CX5 cause Simple Cub could rock the back seat. Once presented with this awesome reality she actually said ‘now we can get a wrangler” for bopping around locally. And surely the wrangler would turn into the MOAB Gladiator ;)

It would also solve this problem

It’s HUGE. My neighbor has a loaded 440 series and it’s so giant

It's so damn ugly, and IDK how the 2 series is over 3800 lbs now, but that engine is marvelous.

If you can ignore how ugly it is, it's a fantastic car for the money.

Also, driving impression embargo ends this weekend so expect to see like 50 reviews of the car all at once.

Certainly larger but I'm 90pct sure the F8X weighed less than the G8X... 😳
Don’t care about weight like I once did. Been there done that. I’m more concerned about placing it here and there on tight roads with ease.

I'm getting rid of my F82 M4 for the Emira because of the weight and lack of driver feel.

I hear you. I never bonded with it. European delivery was great, faultless so far, individual paint and all but don't love it. My E46 M3 instead is such a great car. Also taught me horsepower is not so important for me. I'm thinking of a T as a daily. But need road noise to not be as bad as the F80.

Looks plenty dynamic to me
Find one of these, 335 HP twin turbo, Hydraulic steering. Punchy & fun. Should be able to find one in that price range. Only imported 740 to US. 1 year model. Drive, enjoy, sell - you will not lose a dime.
