A record year for BMW M selling more cars than ever. Massive price increases and controversial styling doesn’t seem to be hurting sales what-so-ever.

Unfortunately for critics like me it means that BMWs recent cringeworthy marketing campaigns will be seen as successes and we can expect to see more awful adverts full of shite rap music and people and screaming at each other.

Be interesting to see the breakdown per market, wouldn’t be surprised if china was up and Europe down, definitely seems a design to suit the Asian market imho.

Yeah that’s a good point. Now seeing quite a few on the roads round my way though but I am fairly local to two BMW main dealers.

I think its just the norm now. Its yesterdays news really.

No matter how many I see, I still don't want one, they just don't look special enough to me. The 4 gives the illusion its bending in the middle !!

I’ve seen a couple on the road now and I’m not swayed. They’ve reached a price threshold for me on PCP that I just can’t reconcile with. At £800-£900 a month on a PCP with no deposit, I’d have given them some thought but at £1200 odd with a sizeable deposit to boot, I’m just not interested. There’s too many good cars available for less and my current mindset is that I’d rather have something a bit older and get better value for money.

That said, when I was sitting looking at a fully loaded M4 in Riviera Blue under showroom lights I was salivating. But then if it were an E92 or F82 in that colour in the same setting I’d probably drooling just the same.

When you think with a few options they are the new Corvette money, I know what I would rather have. But I like 2 door and 2 seaters.

You can also get a Civic Type R Special Edition for under half the price and from a drivers car perspective its a better car. I know the looks are an acquired taste, but I like it.

Its weird I've got a 320d performance edition and its such a good car, the M3 version when these where new, where over 2 times the price, yet it is far from 2 times the car! Its probably the same with this new shape one, I think they are priced way to high now.
