They look like wheels that were offered on the previous gen Z4. They're hideous on the GTS...

I thought it was a good looking car from other photos, but next to the GTS it really reminds me too much of Joan Rivers. Yes, I am serious. Sorry if I offended anyone.






Too many artificially looking contours and line breaks.

Really? I don't think it looks much different to what we have seen so far.

What is the deciding factor mate?

Why would you need winter tires on a car pretty much dedicated to the track?

If you want to drive it on a public road in Germany during wintertime by law you need to drive with wintertires.

I know what you mean. The more time goes on the less excited and interested i get. Then bam, all of a sudden i want one again. May feel the same when Detroit starts.

Test drove a Golf R and an E class 350CDI coupe and they are both fantastic, the interiors are so good and i think the 1M interior will feel a bit of a let down.

Am testing a 135i tomorrow to get a feel for the car so will hopefully come out positive again.
