Yes, I did. I would have preferred a sporty two seater instead, no question. Audi's RS Q8 has been selling well, so BMW's decision to make this car is understandable.

Isn't the X6M the answer to the RSQ8 though, this is going to be larger and priced much higher I would think.

It looks like the real Cybertruck will be coming from Munich.

Looks like BMW designers are big fans of Red Dwarf.

I think they are targeting the G-Wagon market in terms of having a status symbol, but that's gonna be a very tough market to crack in my opinion especially considering the G-Wagon's success here in the states.

As for the Bentayga and the RR, I think anyone shopping for the RR or Bentayga is more concerned with brand perception and status to which those two will be much higher than BMW, I just don't think people will see it the same way as how they see a Bentley and RR, but if they can't stretch the budget, maybe then they'll go with an X8.

My biggest takeaway is the split headlights seen in camo for this, the new 7, and x7 lci may just be decoys

Ok I like it, even the ass looks mean. Front sort of reminds me of the new M2 leaks

I'm so disappointed in the direction this iconic brand is headed.

I guarantee you this will have a variant/spin-off with an RR badge of its own.

Looks fine, the design elements work nicely.


With that being said, it's trying to hard to be Lamborghini without the panache of a Lamborghini.

Looks like it has "pop up" headlights is a manner that it had flaps that cover up the headlights when ots off to only show the DRLs during the day? That part is pretty neat.

I Actually think there are powered headlight covers. But maybe they will just blacken out the area 🤔

Getting groceries has never been so gaudy.

So is this an actual M car? Or just more of BMW's badging trickery?
