I want the handling, engine, and transmission but outside style is still something I still must get warm up to for making that purchase happen.

The B58 engine is perfect for the new Supra, C8 Corvette sales are going to end price gouging pretty quick on the standard versions of these things and they'll be slowly rolling out of Austria for the US at the pace of a few hundred a month for a few years. If you take off the ego-goggles it's a helluva car for $50k and I think ToyotaMW nailed the 'cut price Cayman' target. If I got a job with a bigass salary I'd seriously consider picking one up as a commuter.

I agree. It looks like a very good sports car for 50k to me. I just wish I could appreciate the style more. But I have not seen one in person yet.

Finally got to see one up close and sit in it. Very nice. Id love one if I were comfortable coughing up $60k for one.

Too bad it doesnt come in a manual like its B58 cousin, the M240i does...

It doesn't raise the styling bar the way the 86 did but looks nice in person. Very color dependent. All in my humble opinion

You guys are funny. It is a pos that isn't going to change anything, and only fanboys will

even know it exists.

Cause the ZF 8speed is as fast as the BMW DCT and it can handle way more torque. Autos have caught up, DCTs dont make sense for most cars anymore.
