    I cannot say I like it... Smiley

    Big disappointment, especially in the design department.

    The bottom half of the back is a little too japanese for me but otherwise I think it looks great.

    Horrifically hideous, pity because the potential could have been a game changer

    Not that bad imo. However, once the exhaust tips become bigger than the taillights, I start getting concerned. This may be the one argument for EVs, getting rid of these overallbown fake exhaust tips.

    KMM:

    My E63S has fake exhaust tips as well. You can only see they are fake if you drive directly behind my car and I am glad the tips are black but they are still fake and I hate it. Smiley

    The front and front sideline are OK in my opinion (not sensational though) but the rear? Horrendous. 

    Keep in mind that this is supposed to be a game changer for BMW but I can't see that. I actually like the 6 series more.

    Btw: The 8 series weights between 1830 and 1890 kg, so it is no lightweight car and certainly not a 911 competitor. 

    The M850i xDrive is rumored to be around 125k EUR (base price), maybe not a fortune for a 530 hp car but still more expensive than a new M5.

    Butt ugly is the term. 


    Re: New BMW 8 Series (2018)

    The dealer told me the price in Switzerland for the 850 will be 185k chf. 

    Ridiculoulsy expensive, as it will loose value as quickly as all big bmws..

    BMW never learns. It’s the brand with a lot of potential but it ends there unfortunately...

    Re: New BMW 8 Series (2018)

    Same story again, very appetizing and exciting concept with the end result boring and neutered by the bean counters,


    Re: New BMW 8 Series (2018)

    I cannot find anything negative to say. It is a large car in the BMW style.

    Those who like the contemporary BMW design will like this one too.

    Although voluminous it looks more svelte than Bentley. It also has more interesting design cues than the M-B S Coupe.

    It is high time Porsche brought a model in this class.

    Re: New BMW 8 Series (2018)

    Given the prices of the panamera a porsche car in this segment would compete with Bentley. Way too pricey. 

    But I do have such great memories of the 928 GT growing up.

    The Panamera has been elevated in the wrong segment IMO. The coupe could be a step below, however in the same way as Boxster/Cayman are below the 911 although they share most parts.

    Re: New BMW 8 Series (2018)

    don’t get the extra wide back ( although i guess it has some elements of the original 8 series). glass house is tiny so have to imagine it is both big, wide, heavy AND small inside....

    Btw: The 8 series weights between 1830 and 1890 kg, so it is no lightweight car and certainly not a 911 competitor.  

    the 6 series was about 150kg heavier ..

    the front and side is not bad .. the kidneys are still way too big, but the rear is too fussy; much like a teenager with too many things hanging off his/her ears, nose etc


    Re: New BMW 8 Series (2018)

    Fully agree on fake exhausts . They look ridiculous . And on this car they have reached probably the return point . Can't be more ridiculous then these .
