Yes correct, 430 w/ M-Sport.

Motortrend just ran a pretty unflattering review on this model but I have to say, I love it. I'd advise anyone interested to drive one and make up your mind.

One random thing I love so far, though this is probably specific to the Adaptive M Suspension - there is a community center parking lot near my town with speed bumps in the entrance that are old-school - ie only about a feet long and pretty high. Even at the proper 10-15 mph they deliver quite a jolt normally, but the adaptive M cushions them amazingly (can hear the shock absorber in action).

One thing I did notice, but I have a feeling this is more convertible-specific, is that the door closing doesn't feel or sound as solid as I'm used to on a high end car. I don't have any other convertible experience though so that's likely most of it.

No I felt this too in the coupe. Has more rattle than one would expect.

I think the car looks great though so I'm okay with it. Plus, the fit & finish in the interior is great. I understand the interior is not the "latest" design language and pretty soon we'll have a 85inch screen in there... but boy, I think they nailed the exterior looks & proportions of this thing. The side profile reminds me of the e92

Well at least I know mine isn't an assembly line snafu.
Other than that I friggin love it. Looks mildly ridiculous in an awesome way - stands out nicely against the sea of A5/S5, Benz, and older 2s and 4s around here. Fun to drive, sounds great, electronics are light years ahead of our '21 volvo suv.

So happy to hear you guys are loving your cars!

I agree with everything you all said, including the door feeling. I don't think it's just the convertible, the coupe too feels a little cheap… definitely doesn't have the same feeling as my 2019 4 series, but not terrible.

I have to say, I knew I'd love the car, but I didn't think I'd love it as much as I actually do… I am blown away by the performance and handling.

One thing I thought I'd be a little turned off by is the "lack of sound" others have shared that the 2021s are missing vs the 2020s, with the exhaust pops and cracks…. Not the case at all. I think it sounds rich and the the engine notes are perfect.

I too am impressed with the technology… in just two years this 2021 vs my 2019 is light years ahead. Also important to mention that the Harmon Kardon now vs 2019 is literally 100x better… I'm impressed.

Here are some very basic pros and cons so far….

Cons:

1. Can't shut off start/stop
2. Reverse collision breaking too sensitive for my tight garage and the brakes slam every time I try to leave my garage (I have to use the auto reverse instead).

Pros:

1. Engine notes
2. Quickness / pickup / handling
3. Technology
4. Dravit Grey, you literally have to see it in person… it's the craziest color I've ever seen and I'm obsessed.
