He is saying that there is more direct communication between the car and driver via the chassis with less emphasis on suspension comfort. But just before that he says that you can trust M to always cater for long trip comfort. In summary the car feel less isolated and more communicative but not to a degree that long trip comfort is ruined.

Not super clear but it absolutely do not sound as the car has become number rather the opposite which is a good thing. Traction should be far superior given the change in tires and comments from these first reviews, if you still want more, you’ll have it in spades with the AWD.

That translation is jibberish. I have almost no idea what it means. It was hilarious.

I DO know that the yellow render confirms my fears of absolute and utter front end design failure. Perhaps the M3 will be less offensive.

Everyone freaking out about the grills right now will be buying one in 12 months.

I am not a huge fan right now either, but if it drives as well as expected I am sure I will get used to them.

As I once said in a past post, whoever wants to take on modified front ends for the G80 series BMW's, they could potentially make a KILLING in sales. I'm just sayin.

Does it come with 6 piston calipers with steel brakes now? I know it will with carbon ceremic

Very pleased to read that the new M will be a splendid ride and a clear improvement over the current M4 comp, which is the most satisfying car I ever drove. Might fall in love afterall, in spite of the blatant kidney grill??

If you don't like it just stay away.. simple lol.
What??
Is this a self endulging forum not mature to stand some sound criticsm? Do we all just want to life a pipe dream where we all subdue to the Godess called BMW?

I doubt it will be a standard feature. I would hazard a guess that it is part of the Ambient Air package

Google translate needs some work
The only thing we've learned here is that Google sucks at German

What does it add to the discussion though?
At that Point it's basically meme-spamming.

Don't like it? Fine. Just don't spam it in every Thread available.

I was hoping for a nice duscussion about features and characteristics of the car but no, half the Thread is crying about the grille again. It gets old.

Good review...
It says 4 Piston (Front) with steel discs comes as standard, Carbon Ceramics with 6 Pots are optional.

I have now edited the OP.
Tried to "translate" the Google translation into what is, hopefully, a more coherent text… Neither English nor German is my first languages (I speak both) but I have tried to clean the text up to the best of my ability

Translation says:

The brakes are now six instead of four-piston fixed caliper brake on the front axle with carbon ceramic rotors as an option.
We will know when it comes out.

Not quite. The correct translation would be more like:

"Add to that a six- instead of four pot fixed mounted Brake(caliper) with carbon ceramic Discs, in Doubt (weird wording) both available as an Option."

Sorry englisch isn't my first language.

I'd say "most probably both available as options", from my reading.

I understand, but I don't believe that we keep ventilating the same things to confront or provoke the fans.

I do believe that by doing this, we mourn over the inconsistent behaviour of BMW lately and we feel somehow betrayed. This is the company that has pushed values like no other car brand before, and since a few years they keep ignoring them.

To make it worse, they are arrogant in their communication: "When you don't like the grill, it's because you're conservative" or "when you don't like FWD, you don't understand car dynamics".

BMW is strongly polarising his own fanbase. So when somebody is to blame, it's mainly them. Not us since we all have BMW in our heart... for the time being.

Did anyone on the East Coast Tri-State area get this invite in your email?

Interesting comment on a BMW M Track Day event BMW NA is having in a couple weeks at Monticello Race Track (full day is booked so I'm considering a 1/2 on 8/16). Maybe a closed room G8x reveal?

"The fun doesn't stop here! Don't miss this unique opportunity to be the very first to see the newest addition to the BMW M lineup during a premium closed-room event. Please note that cell phones and cameras will not be permitted in the closed room".

Note: This is only an hour from BMW Headquarters in Woodcliff Lake so it would make sense. I saw the M2 driving around HQ in camo back in 2015 when it first stuck it's head out.
