Could you say if the UK market will get the manual version? Recently we’ve only had Competition versions, such as the X3MC.

That is a solid idea! You should have kept that silent It would look like a black hole coming towards you.

If it can be turned off then is a 4WD not and AWD. So Jason is wrong... ?

I find all that incredibly pointless and dull. Certainly won’t be buying into all that crap. Rather have a more focused pure experience. Probably why I love my M4CS, every journey feels unique and special.
I'm with you. Some tech is useful, but much of it I have no desire for.

There are so many models now I feel it's just not as special as it used to be.
Of course not but on the other hand if they keep making fast RWD manual cars I think they'll still have a niche. Everything went downhill when M did a 180 on "we'll never make an SUV" and "we'll never make a turbo motor".

Personally I think the entire SUV and turbo trend is so counter productive. They handle like garbage and create enormous emissions from their weight. I'm not even sure turbos save any emissions in the real world compared to a well tuned NA motor. It's just a sham and M is not better for it. But they acquired Mini and turbos hit EPA metrics. And the economies of scale on tuning turbo motors versus a bespoke S engine are huge. Gotta deliver that shareholder return.

Quattro, xDrive are AWD (each with its own different set-up and distribution of traction)

M5 is 4WD

AWD has a differential - computer controlled - you can not turn off one axle
4WD has a transfer case - you can manually turn off one axle (4WD / 2WD)

Jason says in the title M xDrive AWD which is confusing.

The silhouette of this car is amazing, I don't believe BMW will go this far and trash the front and rear bumper. the grills will be vertical but I have a feeling it will look great.

Akin to the F90 M5 configuration, I'm 100% sure the G82 M4 will also have an option to toggle-control from AWD to RWD, on the fly.
