If Toyota that I a lot more money than BMW doesn't give him enough money as you say, I doubt BMW will, who after all these years still hasn't built a proper sports car.

I want one if it is as reliable as my 04 GS300. No problems at all for a decade. Just change tires, brake pads, and oil.

And with the glory that are BMW brakes, they need to be cleaned about every two weeks otherwise the wheels are an entirely different color...

It's likely my worst first world problem. It's a heavy burden that I live with...
get a coating for your wheels. makes cleanup alot quick and they will stay cleaner for a longer time

For what it is, I actually like the GS-F. Sadly some people won't be able to look past the power deficit. I have a feeling it will be an extremely niche car anyways. Wrote a quick opinion piece on the GS-F for this blog I contribute to. I have pretty sh*t writing skills, but would be awesome if you guys took a peek lol!

The current Lexus "design" trend makes me think their designers got high on some wicked shrooms, acid, sprinkled some cocaine in for fun, and went to town on a clay model with a samurai sword. Their bosses probably smoked themselves retarded and greenlit this shit.

I think it's going to be in a niche of its own, depending on price. The M5 & E63 are probably going to be quite a bit more expensive and my guess is the GS-F will come in around where the dealer-configured M3/M4's are stickering at.

It's actually kind of funny how ///M cars were not as potent as AMG's offerings yet people said that the BMW was a "balanced" car and that power was not the end-all. With M cars going turbo and closing the power gap with AMG, the GS-F seems to be filling the space left behind by BMW.

Maybe they just love Darth Vador and Predator's helmets.
