I bought my 2010 M3 because I could not deal with the SMG transmission in the M6 so I have been waiting for this car for about two and one-half years. That being said, the grills need work, the taillight detail and trunk could have been better, and the roof line is not very attractive. Maybe I will like it better in person. The grills and that hideous M6 badge can be changed but it is hard to alter the roof line.

Specs and performance numbers look good but are the minimum expected. I guess I will wait awhile longer so I can see it in person before ordering.

I disagree with the comments about the speed of this car... Its a GT type of car not a lets get the best track time car... Its gorgeous. Its kinda like saying I wont buy a Bentley GT cause the GTR can smoke it! Or out handle it! Its a expensive car to cruise in and sometimes untap its power.

Looks amazing, even better than I thought it would, but that kidney grill logo looks absolutely horrible.

Love the coupe. I feel stricken by one of those really bad "I must have" feelings, but where to get the money??? Sell the house, the 1M (couldn't really ever do that), the kids (Might be fun to make some new ones )

Anyways this weekend is the dealer's launch for the F30 up here at Santa land and I'm off in about an hour to flog me some 335 and 328!
Wish me luck, and let's all start saving for the F12

Cheers

wow... speechless. I didnt buy an m6 instead of my m3 for depreciation concerns and ive always had so much love for them even til now.

NOW.... this new one is beyond amazing. Im in LOVE with it. BMW hasnt released a car since the 330ci that ive fallen so in love with right away for me. Woah what is the MSRP for this car? If its a 100k car, i really dont see how anything can be a better combination of speed and comfort. I bet with a couple thousan dollars this thing will be a 700-750HP monster easily.

Oh man.... i want it.

Agreed!
The worst was probably the M6 badge on the grill imo, pathetic!

But otherwise an excellent looking car/s.
Love these colours, is it imola and MCB?
