Obviously this is subjective and I really hate to be a negative Nancy but this car looks flat out awkward. BMW designs recently have been either knock-it-out-of-the-park or a complete whiff for me. That aside, I'm sure it will perform superb.

It'll be awkward and uncomfortable at first then everyone will love it. Same cycle every time they do a complete redesign….wait for it…it'll be great in the end.

Yes, I rented one for 2 weeks while I waited for my X3M Comp to arrive last week. G80 has a great profile and rear; all stat great; the front grill isn't the best imho however it's tolerable especially with the full M model.

"Tolerable" is the bar I use when dropping 80k plus on a car too.

Clearly it's selling well. As I recall many hated the front then the tides turned when it was delivered to sales centers. In person is better than on pictures and as I stated the M version is not bad at all. To each his own. The X5M will sell really well as it has for a very long time now. Nay say on…

Too bad a Norwegian snow monster didn't lift its head up and eat the POS.

I sincerely hope so in my case . I have to say, I love BMW and desperately want to like the XM. Never had to much of an issue when it came to the G80's looks, nor any of the others.

This on the other hand scares me a little

Same. Makes the F80 look extremely dated. And not in the e30/e46 way.
