Simple
I don't hate them, thought the F series was much cleaner, but the new M3 and M4 aren't bad...that 7 series is probably the ugliest car on the road atm though.

I did know there was lots of environmental damage from mining materials for EV batteries. I just didnít know if this material was the only thing they could use for the foreseeable future.
There are several alternate chemistries and overall approaches being used and developed. It's coming, the question is when and how well it will work. THere is a version that uses Iron, but it has worse range (density), so you need more of the other elements like lithium for a given power capacity, which requires mining more of these other elements which themselves come with their own source issues.

MOST people think uniformity is ugly. Apparently not long time BMW enthusiasts. Well times are changing. BMW obviously is looking for new blood and it’s working.
I’ve asked my salesman who is also good friend of mine how well G8x are selling. He said he didn’t have specific numbers, but due to the supply chain issues they have definitely gotten less G8x allocations compared to similar timeframe in F8x lifecycle. What G8x allocations they do get sell quickly. Although apparently verts are getting tough to sell. Unfortunately BMW no longer provides individual sales data, just a generic M sales number that now includes all the M-lite models.

No one said in 2030 ice cars would magically disappear.

Not many car makers are wasting time going with hybrids, a lot of them are going straight to ev.

Hell gm just introduced a new v8 thatíll go into the c9 generation. But most likely a hybrid so ice will still be around but theyíll be hanging by a thread.

You have time to find your best ice car and hold onto it when all new car sales will be ev. Thereís still time.

As far a sales numbers, I certainly donít think that is the best way to judge the looks of any vehicle. Especially in the lease environment of the last 10+ years, people will get the newest model in 3 years or less no matter what. Every new model should outsell the prior one because cars are now disposable items.
And model 3/yís continue to soar in annual sales for being such a ďboring and uglyĒ car.

The g80/g82 sell well because itís still new lol. New cars always sell. Wait until the back half of its life cycle, which is now?

People will be waiting for the next gen m3/m4 or upgrading to m5ís which is what Iím gonna do lol

Look, I don’t normally recommend this because people are stupid enough before they drink, but I think you should have a drink. Either that or take a lorazepam.

You’re welcome

Edit-never mind. I just realized you’re from Philadelphia. That explains everything. However, I still recommend the lorazepam. Definitely don’t drink.

The split headlights are 10x worse than the grilles. Like, what the hell are they doing there? The bottom lights are just basic circular light sources, it looks like they spent all of the money on the upper lights and ran out for the bottom.

I think you're forgetting that a lot (if not most) people aren't buying Tesla's b/c they want an EV, they buy them b/c it's a status symbol.

That's like saying some Yeezy shoes outsold your run of the mill Adidas. That doesn't mean the Yeezy is a better shoe...

Not all all.

What ev provides the performance, range and network all in one? At its price point?

I’ll wait.

People buy them because it’s an EV THAT WORKS. Other ev’s are either all 100k+ or really cheap but dog shit slow with shitty range and without the tesla network.

If the cars suck so bad, why are people buying them? They’re actually expensive when you compare prices of them years ago.

Has nothing to do with status or is it now? What status is that? I thought Tesla isn’t a luxury brand?

I don’t consider my model 3 luxurious at all.

I just know I’m driving the leading car maker when it comes to ev’s. It’s a superior brand to those who are trying.

It’ll be like that for a while.

Not at all. Youíre just the guy that stands up in the middle of the room because he hears something he doesnít like, spews profanities in every direction without making a point other than youíre irritated, and then storms out of the room. I merely called you on it. You remind me of one of my cousins in Boston. Seems to me cussing at everyone is a hell of a lot bigger personal attack then me telling you to chill out.

Idk about liking to see it happen.

I’m ok with it whether it happens or not. I have an ev so I’m good.

The difference is it’s going to happen regardless. That’s the part that’s not getting through everyone’s head.

"hears something he doesn't like"

Patton~ "the g8x is the best selling m3 of all time"

pretty sure that's not a fact bud, not something I don't like

you are the kind of person who has to judge people when called out on your incorrect statements, and then project your feelings onto others with the guise that you are cool as a cucumber.

anyways the "point" of my post was yall just justifying your luxury purchases, to others on this forum, why? you think you can somehow justify an m3 as a logical decision over a corolla. a hermes bag over a walmart purse. no one is saving the planet, everyone can say something is ugly/not, everyone has an opinion. however, how much a car sells per generation is not an opinion

just human behavior I guess

I apologize but I stopped reading your rant after the first somewhat organized paragraph. It is the number one selling M3 of all time. Try using the Internet. Iíll forgive you. After all youíre from Philadelphia.

alright, a car that has been in production for less than 2 years is the best selling of all time. right

You can laugh all you want. Iím talking about initial numbers from the launch. That seems to be a difficult concept for you. Itís first year production sold more cars than the F 80s first year of production. Did that make it easier for you? I realize the public school system in America is messed up but good grief man. At least you have the Internet now so youíre without excuse.

It may surprise you to find how many people in the forum actually know and understand (I for one know full well it will, it was never even a question), its the question of when and how

Let me ask you a question. Does it bother you that the reason you are right in your statement is because itís being forced through law and not through normal consumer demand?

Every freaking fully electric vehicle I have seen on the market with the exception of this really awesome looking Audi are all ugly as shit. Itís almost as if they set ugly as a guideline for all electric vehicles.

Now this is a good looking EV. If I didnít already have an M5 on its way, I might look at getting this Audi. I suspect itís well-built also unlike Tesla.
