I don't think this is one of the best designs they have done and certainly not a classic such as the I8 or M3's.

Still looks like a nice car. Not for me though.

I really want to get a car with pop ups and some point.
Pop ups are long gone and unlikely to appear on anything ever again. Pedestrian impact laws have killed them off.

I was really keen on this car as you may remember. However the price is just way too far out there, starts at 74k apparently for the 840.

I guess as per my 650, will be a greatest second hand buy!

I like it, just not 100k like it.

I'm banking on this car following the tradional BMW depreciation and becoming a half price car in 18 months time, if this is the case then i will seriously consider this as a next car.

Me too. Exactly what I did with my current one!

I’ve asked for a test drive so will report back soon
