Just got back in the car after a very long day. Man, this car is an absolute blast! So capable, and really fun to push on with. Also … launch control …. Wow!!!

As much as that colours not for me, I didn't like it at all on the X3M...however, I don't know why, but it looks good here on your X4M. Congrats. Interested to hear your thoughts on how you compare it to the pre LCi

It does suit the Coupe platform so well, this would be my choice of colour on a G82 M4C if BMW UK care to offer similar discounts to what was available on pre-lci and lci F97 / F98s .. this may be a long wait

Looks awesome Moff super happy for you .. allow a good hour extra for 892M wheel detailing

Thank you!!

Had I gone for another X3M it would have been in MBB which looks epic on that car.

Those wheels

I've got to ceramic coat then soon, not looking forward to that! But boy do they look amazing. So much nicer than my old wheels.

Certainly is nice, but £93k 5.9% APR….. you could pick up a lightly used X5m for similar money.

Sorry I've been away for a bit - been focused on figuring out what's going on with my GR86 order. Total nightmare! Anyway, looks like I'm actually getting one which is good news!

X3M has now had its RIS and I'm still loving it! What an awesome bit of kit, if anything it's even faster now.

The downside is that 70 mph comes up too fast, so never really enjoy it to the redline. (I would never break the speed limit ).

It’s also quite agile for such a big and heavy car, with minimal body roll around some of the twisty a-roads we have. First real drive of the summer out in the sunshine. I love this car.

Me too! It's epic!

So I have just received the bad news that my order of the LCI will not arrive this year and will be sometime in Q1 2023. If it arrives in the later part of Q1 that will be over 13months of a wait!

Boooo, that's bad! Thought my 10 month wait was bad enough!

That said the car is epic. So hold tight, fuel prices might have eased a touch by then at least!! 🤣

Have to admit I did consider cancelling, but after reading the statements on here I think I would always wonder. Haha, will fuel prices ever come back down.....
