    Looks like Mora metallic - an individual colour used on E38 and E39s 20 years ago.

    I like it

    Well, BMW are consistent if nothing else: X7, M8. To misquote - ugly is as ugly does.

    I hope that seat pic is simply printed back > front, otherwise why have the logo like that - unless they expect you to be admiring yourself in the rear view mirror? :whistling: =|

    It kind of looks back to front, as if it should be ‘BM’ or ‘8M’ but actually, I think it’s the correct way round.

    Or alternatively you could get another 4 door V8 M powered BMW for about 70k to 80k after discount, that is more practical and otherwise just as good..... I give you the M5, the thinking mans M8 GC....

    I doubt anybody will really be paying £129K for a M8 GC, if the lightly used 8 series coupe prices mentioned above continue to lanquish at dealers. I have now heard of two people getting 8 series coupes for not much more than half list (an 840d for £50K for example). The 8 GC is definitely the best looking new BMW in my eyes, although maybe not in Aubergine. Will certainly be top of my list in a couple of years when I replace my 6 GC if I remain with BMW..

    Or get a late M6 GC, a 2018 reg would be about £40k now if you can find one. Awesome car. I remember Clarkson driving one and saying it was the best car of its type, but that’s not much of a recommendation!
