My, is that a non-structural plastic roof panel, or are you just happy to see me?

If they have change that, what else are they off base on?

I changed it early this morning to be more inline with the content of the article. It doesn't change what we know and believe. And as I said in the BF comment I hope we're wrong as I'd love to see some naked CF on this thing.

Does it change the 1M? Absolutely not. People will love this car.

I was hoping for a carbon fiber roof, but at least offer a sun roof delete option. Fixed roof FTW!

ok, well they better offer black rims as a choice, because this is what it's looking like:No DCT
No CF roof
Limited colors
No S55
Possibly 2k units worldwide (I call bullshit)
50K, but for what really---The "M" experience? If I really want a pure
Driving experience with a 300+ hp car, that is lightweight with no
compromises, there is a black 964 Turbo that is possibly for sale
near me...

There is no way they will build this car for 1-1.5 years and only build 2000 units. How long was the GP built for, maybe a few months at the most. My thought is they will build as many as they can sell. Go to a dealer today and telll them you want to build an M3 and they will simply take an incoming 335 slot and spec it for a M3. Do ED and it majically comes from a slot other than theirs. If BMW really wants $$ they will build what the demand call for.
(I hope).

Also:

- No full carbon fiber body
- No under $30k price
- No 500hp
- No Recaro seats
- No HUD display
- No redesigned body to get rid of the 1-series native ugliness

Etc...but is this reasonable ?

I doubt really they will not put a CF roof first that part of the new M signature (the same happen with the M Roadster and Coupe for the 4 quad exhausts and the fender etc...).

Furthermore they have a cooperation with a factory in US so really not point for them to not do it.

Especially if they want to improve the dynamic feeling of the car.

If it drives and feels like an M car, as promised, yes it is reasonable.
