And congratulations on the new car.
Is it as fast/fun as you expected? A true M car?

It is an absolute hoot on the track and an addictive plaything on your favorite twisty back road. "

There is still enough time to change the color when delivery is planned for September. While BSM might hide some curves of the car, it emphasizes the compactness

does it look like a true "wide body" car in person? when coming down the road does it have a tough road presance? if parked next to a 135i does the car look very different? also, what would you rate the fit and finish of the interior?

congrats and i cant wait to get mine in two weeks!

As a young gentleman I must first answer to a young lady, which moreover is a BMW enthusiast...

So yes it is! It's as fun, brutal and orgasmic as I expected, this will deserve better writeup but I did a ride today on roads that I know well around my place and the LSD became a f**cking revelation! You can feel everything pushing just the way it should always be. I wonder how I did before without a real LSD. I tell you with those m3 legs on this small body, this car goes strongly and biblically out of any corners...

I don't have enough experiences with M cars to be a good judge, only the whole range of 30i-35i and a some miles in a Z4M which was my second option in February. So with my experience I can only say that this car feel way to special to not be considered as an ///M car. And definitely cannot be compared with a 135i, everything is more harsh and more sharp.
