Looks good.... but all this M-Performance parts for the BMW cars reminds me of microtransactions in todays games/apps for some reason, they release a car but to get it "complete" you have to buy extra parts aka microtransactions to get it done but in this case M-Performance parts.

But you are not forced to buy them it just makes the car a bit "better" like cosmetic items.

I might be one of the younger people here when referring to this.

The carbon bits should be standard - to set it apart from the M40i and lesser models

Mathetics...except for the suspensions and exhaust options perhaps.

The M division is really hurting its name with all of this never ending "M-performance" nonsense.

I think what you said is a great comparison. The cars look good I suppose, but it's all becoming a bit of a joke.

Sucks.

I'm old enough to remember when M cars stood out on their own based on design and performance. The whole point was to have a sleeper car that performed. Now this bells, whistles, and trinkets "package" contains stripes? Can't wait to see those stripes on a color that isn't white. Actually I can wait. A long time

I think with all the gloss black trim everywhere the CF around the grills and gills seems a bit out of place, I personally would opt to keep those gloss to match.

The M Performance Parts should be renamed in "Blacked Out Look Parts" (with optional carbon fibre instead). Since I'm not a fan of that look, it's definitely not for me.

Reassuring to see that i'm not the only one wondering what the heck is BMW doing as of late!! especially with this very first M SAV ! they might as well call it the night package like Benz does with its blacked out parts , it's absolutely not performance enhancing ! heck i think it's the only M car with no forged wheels option no ?
No mature man will ever ride a car with these silly stripes .
