Rumors are indicating that there will be a 8 or a 9 series, a ultra luxury car with a good old V12 and everything.

My Ride: Cabrio. Stick.
1.The classic & distinguishable kidney grilles are slowly fading into the rest of the headlights.
2.The cheasy little fender "SPORT" GM-looking badge better not make the final grade.
3.The dual-sculputred lined hood is a bit much, 1 line would've sufficed.
4.Looks simply...BIG.
5.Dash & console looks confusing with its various array of "flows"

There. My negatives are stated.

Lol instead of BMW trying to stand and create something that everyone would want rather than an Audi or Mercedes, they are ruining everything just to be like Audi.

Like I said, BMW died a little while back.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a revamped 8-series considering BMW already produced an 8 in the past.

Slapping M badges on every one of their models in some shape or form is ruining the brand image. BMW needs to take a look at their marketing scheme and maybe do some reconsidering.

Not even mentioning the efficiencies of larger countries.

As divided as this country is, at least we are one.
