    Yes agreed turbo S prices are going silly, I used it as an example, there are as you say more accessible high performing Porsche's out there that will do almost the same to many cars on "B" roads, my point is the "Size" of all these new cars...........they are huge and getting bigger!! this is the UK not USA, our roads can't accommodate the size increase IMO especially "B" roads.

    First I know the Comp is better than the standard M5, and the LCI better again, as i presume the CS obviously is too...so I am not fooling anyone or myself in thinking the standard one is better - and that is not what i mean here...but my standard one pops and bangs loudly and whenever i want, i think from experience the standard has softer suspension than the Comp so its more forgiving on our poor UK roads, and the performance difference i think is not noticable - therefore I dont think the others (whilst no doubt being better cars in their own way) would be better for me as a daily...many may disagree - but I love my first edition F90, probably more than er-indoors...

    I agree …. I doubt The CS will be hardly any different to the LCI comp to the average driver on the road . As Simon points out mainly suspension from his drive , My M4 CS wasn’t hardly any different to the comps I had maybe just sharper turn in but even that might of just been less Unsprung weight due to CCBs . I think it’s the visual difference / detail that is the biggest difference with a CS . Basically ….. BMW marketing bull5hit as per normal , you either buy into it or are wise to it .

    I don’t think anybody hates the car on here , well not what I’ve read .I certainly don’t … It’s just opinions !

    I’m sure if you want one that bad you’ll find one relatively easy calling a few dealers because I doubt there are many people prepared to buy one . They couldn’t even sell 100 M2cs’s as they have started to appear as pre regs as per normal like the 3/4 CS did .

    I know I'm weird but I actually prefer the front on the G80 compared to the front on the M5CS. Also at something in the £70's (k) the X-Drive G80 is reasonable value for money especially when looking at overall performance.

    Sorry for the intrusion. I'll get back in the G80 section now. :)

    Liking this a lot. The seats look great in the front but I don’t like them in the rear and a shame you can’t spec it that way. Everything else looks great.

    Acording to those who have driven it, the noise deadening has been reduced and distance driving may be impaired, tyre roar etc.
