No matter what, always a tease
Sure it was great to see the beast, but all it does is leave us hungry for more facts. BMW is probably doing this totally by design. They sure did a good job of hiding the car until the official launch. I sure would like to get some real specifications but we all know that game as well - it will likely be under rated just like 335i and M5. We won't know much until it gets a thorough magazine test. Luckily I remember it being said somewhere that the exact car we have seen will be driven by the press fairly soon. Didn't someone else recall that as well?
Right now my biggest concern is the availability of SMG or DSG. I just won't buy it with a 6MT.
