Honestly since the new lci and face lifts since 2016-2018 bmw has been going down hill. I don't think I'd want to own any bmw besides a x5 or m5/m8. Anything else idk anymore. Already starting to look at other brands lol. May just get a f82 m4. And keep that for some time

Yes I know what you are saying. I love the design of the f82 M4. I have been so happy with mine and I still love how all the power comes on so aggressively. Also the dct is really something special. The grille on it looks so small compared to these cars now. I also have the X5M which in my opinion looks amazing from all angles.

...and everyone else is still sticking with the same single lens headlight! People make it sound as if BMW previously had their own unique headlight that no one else had. About the only thing unique with previous BMW headlights are the angel eyes and they're still there with the split headlights.

I personally think the F8x only good from the exterior point of view. The interior design, though, looks cheap compared to the E9x and G8x, and its Audi/Mercedes competitors of the same era.

Yes design is a little controversial won't deny it, but it also needs some credit. How little body roll that thing has when its cornering is kind of impressive considering how big it looks.

I get that. I personally really like the needle gauges it has. The F platform was not really updated much over its lifetime. From a driving perspective I really enjoy how it's a bit rough with the gear shifts amd power delivery.

Is this going to be the size of an X7? It looks really big.

Big girl can dance. Would have been more fun to see it passing a Porsche.

Though I'm sure not everyone is impressed...

Need that power plant in the next M5:

"G90 M5 is confirmed to use the same powertrain as G09 XM, though the tune level is unknown."

Making an SUV run the Ring is like taking an elephant to a horse race track and trying to convince everyone it's a good idea to train your elephant to go faster and trying to convince how fast and nimble it is.

BMW wants to be like Genesis and Nissan. Great auto company's to copy styling.

My 2022 X5 will stand the test of time with it's killer looks.

BMW's styling team needs to wake up and smell the coffee.
