What do you think of new m240? 369bhp b58 - ZF - and looks like it's gonna be xdrive only, however I've seen some posts that it will be available as rear wheel drive in US.

X-Drive and 200kg heavier than an F22.

Though there's another thread on this.

Another case of Verschlimmbesserung I fear - at least from my viewpoint.

Well, I think from a board weltanschauung, it's looking very tasty, but just too damn expensive :D

I don't like the increase in size and weight and would like a RWD option, but it does look more purposeful than the previous M240 and wouldn't look out of place if it had M2 badges on the front. I don't like the rear though, especially the crappy exhaust outlets.

It is expensive, but as it no longer competes with an M140 it is easier to justify as a separate coupe model and compares well to the more expensive Audi TTRS and RS3.

PCP looks expensive though and wouldn't want to spend cash as depreciation will be massive if supply returns to normal and when the next M2 steals its thunder.

Seen it in that colour a few times now and its not for me. To be circa £10K more expensive even though it will be a "better car" is hard to swallow and i would imagine put it out of range for a few previous owners of the G22. Looks like BMW trend towards much higher prices and lower discounts could become the norm.
