My 428i GC?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just got "pulled ahead" into a GC. Liked the Msport front bumper, but I couldn't justify the price or some of the features so I ended up with a luxury line in a light color to highlight the "air curtain" intakes and lessen those gaping bumper cheeks.
Since you can't build one on the US site yet, I went to their main website. Built my car, downloaded the wallpaper and the result was this bizarre Luxury - Msport hybrid!
(These configurators can come up with some weird sh*t...)

It's because the way the configurator works is just piecing little photos and parts of the car together to fit the options you check off in the check boxes. When I played around with it before, sometimes it would show me a photo of the car without the seats or steering wheel.

The 4GC configurator may still be in slight development, resulting in a glitched photo haha. Would be funny though if you requested that exact car.

Garage List
Even in Australia (where a 428i GC costs $89k on-road) the M-sport package is only $2k. It was a must for me as the M sport steering wheel is sooo much nicer to touch. The non-Msport steering wheels feel very coarse and plasticky, rather than soft plush leathery.

100% agreed, having had a non m-sport loaner, m-sport is a must for me from now on simply for the steering wheel
