I have two comments here.

1. I completely agree with your opinion on the Supra styling. They went too far with faking the funk.

2. The Supra does look better in person. I'm just not sure this point overcomes the first one for me.

I haven't driven the Supra, but I have driven ZFs and DCT. My 340i vs 135i extensively and shorter drives in Ms. Wouldn't be surprised if the shift speeds are the same, but the dct did feel like a more aggressive shift. It might all be in my mind, but I miss the dct.

Because what you meant to say is that it is not enough of a driver's car for you, which is perfectly valid, but let's not act like a driver's car is so cut and dry that it can be determined from a spec sheet.

People will attempt the same with the C8. In one year, there will be plenty of Supras and C8s to buy at MSRP or less. I'm eyeballing that white 1997 NSX-T on BAT right now. Now THAT is a true sports car

I think they were just trying to find the path of least resistance to be the first to hit 1000hp

Having the "Supra" name as much as people hate that its not a Toyota is really only gonna help us BMW Folk... All these other world known tuners and shops are gonna mod the crap out of the B58 leading to more BMW friendly parts and maybe more future mods.
