        I can’t stand BMW interiors, they haven’t improved in 30 years.

        You’d have to be on drugs to pick the M8 over the GT63 for the same money, it’s not close.

        Actually, it's the other way around.

        BMW has been ahead of everyone else in ergonomic design for over 35 years. They pretty much got it right the first time and have had to install only slight refinements and enhancements since. Any BMW owner can sit blindfolded in any other BMW of the last 35 years and know exactly where the controls will be.

        Lexus, MB, Audi, Cadillac and Tesla introduce zoomy new designs every year that seldom enhance driver operational functionality but only dazzle and confuse.

        How is it not? I'd argue in favor of the BMW. Larger motor with proven 1000+ hp builds, better transmission, and better looking....
