Those are…the seats from my X3?

Whatever. It'll be awesome. Get two: one to drive and one to save.

A few of the reviews mention that the AT car was a Competition model. If accurate that's the first confirmation of a M2C G87.

Real talk! These are unreasonable for standard M2 tier seats.. They are basically some M240i seats with some blue stitching and rat fur. I'm guessing no individual leather color choices either.. #Sad🥲

I guess it's time to budget for some nutt-hugging, carbon fiber seat add on.. 😗

Well payed BMW😉

The CF seats look incredible, but getting in and out of them is a real pain in the anoose. Also don't want to sit in a La-Z-Boy.

One of the guys mentioned he doesn't believe those will be the production seats. I lost track of who.

Anyways, glowing reviews to say the least! And the car looks gorgeous! (Including the rear)

A few points:

Manual and auto versions have the same power outputs
Seats will be shared with the G8x (doubt that includes color ways)
Wheels and tires same as the G8x (sounds like that includes design?)

Have to say the whole looks better than the sum of the parts. Easily will be the most desirable S58 model on offer.

Hmm… and like I have been repeatedly stating the heritage badges are only for 2022 ~ 9 mins and 25 secs.
