Don’t worry, someone will still start a thread asking if they should let their car warm up for 10 mins before driving in 34 degree Fahrenheit weather!

So the official launch announcement is right around the corner. They typically leak photos or post these videos literally days prior. Assuming we’ll get 2 or 3 more of these videos the announcement should be by end of April.

I would wait to see if there is no error message at -30c. With my F31 I always had low battery warning at these temperature and the transmission was shifting pretty rough after cold starts.

I would hope there weren’t error messages upon starting up after the overnight vold chamber. Wasn’t the 1st time these cars have been subject to these conditions. The launch is weeks away.

Excellent video clip here. Even under the camo they both look a bit porky though. Only time will tell how agile these are on the streets someday soon.

I get it, winter testing is a big deal in automotive engineering.

Always trying to make this as a marketing material is beyond me and it’s getting stale and boring. Every company does this, but rarely make it an advertising campaign. And what exactly are they trying to highlight here, the car doesn’t fall off a slope and can hold traction on uneven strips of ice and road? It’s not like AWD is the new sliced bread.

Atleast it’s the theme BMW decided to pick since pitching the G60 teasers to the audience.

Enjoy in good spirits, hate me all you want

That's what summer testing is for. Can't be done in the winter.

M8 with competition pack price range is probably pretty close.
