      X3M starts at $82,700 CDN, X3M Comp is $93,000. Add $10K to each to be "well equipped."

      I would figure the G80 M3 will be shouting distance of both of these with X-drive. The "Pure" model (if it does come to Canada) will be less, maybe $78,000 (discount for manual and AWD.)

      As for the front grille, here are some recent spy shots. It's not filling me with joy.

      Oh no, they're going full pig snout. I love how the BMW head tries to spin it off as heritage....such BS. It's no different than when people try to claim historical status to preserve decrepit old buildings. Let it die.

      I think there are definitely ways to execute the old tall elongated kidneys, but from that spy shot it appears they took an audi sized grille and split it in half.

      Lol. I love it. Finally they are going completely bonkers with the grille. I'm really looking forward to see just how absurdly large they will be able to take it. I like it when real life imitates art.

      Unless it loses significant amount of weight and significant amount of that digital feeling I couldn't care less if it had 1000 hp.

      I agree, though MB is still offering a V8 + RWD.

      It's hard to find a M2 under 80K. Realistically, new M3/M4 will be 100K plus taxes once freight, paint, options are added.

      While a little-off topic, all of the M2s in my area are in $80K territory. I was looking at a leftover new 2018 M3 base at the dealerships with MSRP of $75K.

      There's a reason BMW decided to add 'M' moniker to 340i this time around. It's because upcoming M3 will surpass $100K sticker.

      Love they are moving this to AWD with a rwd biased drift mode like the m5. Still coming around to the m3 design, though the m4 look great. Really hope they leave a manuel tranny option, and if they do i cant wait to see some manual swapped X3M's

      I think the current (old?) one does too if you go wild with the Individual options.

      F8x in competition guise was typically in the 75-80k range. I'd expect the vanilla one to be about there and the competition to be pushing 90. But you're right, with options, it will be easy to hit six digits.

      That M4 GC rendering on the previous page has my attention... but I don't think that has been approved.

      wow... BMW designers have lost it. The front will look hideous if the grille goes down like that.

      I know that’s a render, but I’m really concerned it’s actually going to end up looking something pretty similar to that. BMW has gone overboard catering to the Chinese market and their hardon for gigantic grills.

      I did too. They were shocking at first, but grew on me very quickly.

      Also, something that people don't think about is the Bangle era designs were different, dynamic, and interesting, but proportional. That's the big gripe I have with the new grills. They're not in proportion to ANYTHING else on the car.

      Rolls Royce (ahem, BMW) can make a gigantic grill look good. These are just too much.

      They sell enough over there that they should just give them special gaudy front clips

      However that would draw more attention to how incoherent/boring the rest of the designs are.
