The exhaust sounds way too quiet (probably not production exhaust). I hope there is more f30/f80 exhaust burbles!

It's all speculation at this point, based on some rumors and vague comments from BMW representatives and officials.

- rear spoiler and aero changes
- a lot more M logos
- limited exterior color palette with unique colors (ie Valencia, Aurum Dust)
- unique interior styling cues ala the 1M seats with pinstriping/alcantara etc
- more power
- better brakes
- quicker ratio steering - possibly non electric ?
- faster Dual Clutch trans ?
- EDC type suspension?

etc.

So.. yes.. ONE item that has been used to differentiate M cars for a decade or two is off the list... hardly a major change to the normal M treatment.
I'm sort of new to the BMW heritage and M in particular, so forgive me if this sounds like a stupid question. What is the one item that has been bumped off the list?

sounds good and better than my n55 135. but is it worth 50k? a brz is 28k and much lighter but needs brakes. I've seen a Hyundai turbo 4 hold its own at summit point. what's next, an SVO?

It seems to be quite fast! With the optional LSD I'm sure it will be a great track car
