I'll consider RWD AT only if it comes with DCT.

So far it seems like the majority are split between two groups:
1. Practical daily/winter car
2. Fun weekend/summer car

I am seriously interested in the "Pure" trim for my next car. I prefer a manual and a somewhat stripped down option list. I still regret not getting the cloth seats on my F80. After driving the Hellcat for a while, I think I will be fine with ~450 HP as long as it is engaging to drive.

Considering this will probably be the last go around for the 6MT, despite my last 2 M cars being DCT, I'm going 6MT.

I think that stigma will influence a lot of decisions. The Competition is obviously the car with the most stature, and those who want the Ms for the badge will choose that simply because it's the most expensive with the most power and features. Admittedly, an AWD M3 is very very attractive, but if the "Pure" provides a more "pure" driving experience for significantly less coin, then I might choose that one. Rest assured, the G80 forums are going to be full of debates about which one is the "best". The M3 vs M4 debate will be nothing in comparison. Prepare for egos to get bruised!

Here's my take:

If it's your only toy, go RWD Manual and enjoy that true M/// setup.

If you already have a worthy toy and need a daily driver, go AWD AT if the performance can even come close to what we're seeing out of the new m5.

I already have my weekend toy (GT3) but would strongly consider a G-series M3 as my daily driver with AWD and AT setup if it gives me a bit of a "baby M5" experience.

I am with you on this one. My m2 comp is my fun tossable short wheel base manual car. Now, I'd love the looks, power, and comfort of an auto rear or all wheel drive monster competition M3. Very excited to see what the pure will be compared to the competition variants.

This decision will be made for me when they publish the weight of this g80
If it stays rwd and MT but doesn't get any lighter then it'll be a hard pass
$75k S58 MT g80 around 3400 lbs would be ideal

i can't see it weighing that as much as it would be awesome. A base 330i weighs 3580 or so.

even if you lose the moonroof, and have a ton of carbon fiber i think theres only so much they could do

bet its in the 3800 range base which would put it about 150 lbs more than an m2 competition MT

I think that's to be expected. Like I know it's a cool idea, but i never understood why people would want a RWD SAV or Touring. When I pick cars, i look at either a fun car or a practical car. The only value to getting RWD at that point is slightly better economy. But otherwise it makes more sense to get the awd practicality with AT performance and comfort.

It's not, but if you're buying a car it's in one of those 2 categories. You are either focused on practicality or fun. So I'm just saying it's strange to me when people look at cars that are clearly focused on practicality and choose options that take away from it. All that to say I'm not surprised that it's split the way it is. For a car like the G80, you will either have people that want to focus on the performance aspect or people that want to squeeze as much practicality into it as possible. Not in between.

Same here, is perfect for a daily driver especially if the AWD can be turned to a RWD with the push of a button and a manu-matic gearbox. It combines the best of two worlds.
