Looking great. Modern, sleek, minimalist.

Can't wait to see options for colors and materials for the interior.

I am sure BMW Individual can do some cool stuff with this car!

Interior is nice but seems to lack the vision of the exterior. £100k is far too much for this car it will regrettably suffer big depreciation as nearly all expensive BMW 's do. Only one that appreciates is Z8.

I agree, the interior is a little plain jane, but I think I like it. Especially if there are material options when ordering one. Gorgeous none the less. As stated above, those door sills look pretty healthy to be trying to crawl over with that low roof line.

I would even expect increased depreciation as technology advances. The specs on this car will become obsolete like an out of date computer.

My guess is leasing will be quite popular with this car.

I'll be seeing a chiropractor pretty often were I to climb in and out of those doors on a daily basis. :P

Personally, I would spend $125K plus on another set of wheels if I had that sort of money to spend on an automobile. Way better options out there at that price.
