True.

Like I said, the only thing I don't like about it is the price. There are so many options out there and is analogous to how porsche owners point out that you could get a turbo for the same price of an aston martin vantage v8, which is slower and less reliable.

Good point.

But I don't think that it cost too much money to develop these special editions, which means profit.

A bit brave for BMW to go with that paint scheme and red accents and wotnot. And even the silver CF trim is legit now. I'm surprised, it looks like a car made by a sponsor on E90 post. Looks cool!

Nor me. 2 too many doors to be desirable or achieve what I think they are trying to achieve.

Already announced that it's not coming state side. It has the GTS engine and special seats neither of which have been federalized, so it's not coming.

The E90 experiment was done 1st because it's going out of production this year. Scott26 (BMW Insider) has already said to expect something for the E92 next year before it going out also.

Agreed.
