BMW 8 Series is a fascinating car with both pros and cons. Although it isn’t perfect, the BMW 8 Series is a pleasant car. It’s too expensive for many customers to buy. It’s therefore not surprising that BMW hasn’t spent a lot of money on its LCI mid-cycle facelift. New spy photos show that the exterior has been left untouched, even with the camouflage. We don’t have the photos, but they can be viewed here.
These new photos show a BMW M850i in a beautiful shade of green and the BMW M5 CS’s gold wheels. Be assured that there will not be a BMW M8 CS. We’ve been told that. Although we don’t understand why the test mule is equipped with such large wheels, it appears to be an M8CS. Without any added aggression, it doesn’t look at all like one.
Moreover, the exterior doesn’t appear to have undergone any major changes. Camo covering the front ends seems to have done little for it. The headlights and kidney grilles look the same. The lights may be a little slimmer, but it is subtle. Although the lower intakes of air appear a little different with the driver assistance sensor located at the bottom, it’s not a significant change.
Camo covers most of the rear end, so you won’t see much there. The rump of the car you see is identical. LCI rear ends are also a common feature of BMW. Its exterior design was always an asset to the 8 Series. The 8 Series is still a beautiful car, despite its flaws. It doesn’t really need much updating.
Unfortunately, no interior photos are available. We hope BMW has made changes to the cabin of the 8er for LCI-duty. This is the 8 Series’ only real visual weakness. The 8 Series interior isn’t as luxurious as it looks or feels. While the material quality and ergonomics are excellent, they don’t feel quite as unique as their price. BMW has made improvements to address this.
This is the final chance for the 8 Series to be improved. The 8 Series isn’t selling enough, and the price tag for making it is high. BMW will most likely end production of this model year. We hope that the improvements will make the 8er more attractive while they’re still available, and allow for more buyers to then be able to grab some used cars on the second market once the depreciation hits.
