This was known well before autoblog posted on it and you linked to it (July to be exact). If it was not for the sDrive naming we would have seen this car released on November 5th. Yokohama owned the rights....


I digress...

This car is in one word: gorgeous

A bit disappointed by the weight but even with the hard top the weight is 50/50 and that is impressive.

The interior is a nice step up and takes a few cues from the cancelled CS. It will be interesting to see in fact where the cup-holders are, looks like they may be removable an clip in to the center stack in those black areas....

Nice to see all the info about the DCT and other things were true. The e-brake (literally e-brake) was first spied here on this site way back so it is not a surprise and does free up some space on the console (ala Audi A4 etc.)

My biggest gripe.... is the wheel choices though the smallest is a 17 (yeah a BMW without baby wheels!) the 19" are a bit bland for the car.

The new BMW design language is great; especially that front fascia/grill!
