IT'S HERE! BMW M8 Competition Collection Day

It is FINALLY time to collect the BMW M8 Competition! It's been a long wait, but how better than to head to M Town with my friend GerCollector in his M4 GTS to collect the Oxford Green M8 Coupe, joined by Markus Flasch, CEO of BMW M. There are many miles ahead for the new arrival, and you can bet they are going to be great miles!
Kicking off from GerCollector's amazing garage, we are surrounded by the likes of the F82 M4 GTS, the E92 M3 GTS, iconic Z8 and even a super-rare E90 M3 CRT of which they only made 67. For today's outing, the M4 GTS is the car of choice, an iconic machine to head to the very home and heart of BMW M, affectionately known as M Town.
On arrival at the M Studio, the hall is filled with some amazing examples of BMW M cars, from the M8s to the new M2 CS, and some demonstrations of BMW Individual colours, options and personalisation that can be completed. It's here though lying in wait that we find the newest Shmeemobile, the BMW M8 Competition Coupe.
Finished in Oxford Green, a colour chosen as it had featured on the previous 8 Series of the 1990s, and complemented by a Silverstone interior finished with carbon fibre trim, the upgraded wheels and a host of technology, the car is absolutely stunning. It's powered by a 4.4l TwinPower Turbo V8 making 625hp, combined with the M xDrive system that I got to know and enjoy with the M5 before.
To top off an amazing opportunity to visit the M Studio, I'm also lucky to be joined by Markus Flasch, BMW M CEO, who had very kindly had a personalised Shmee150 cup-holder cover produced for the central console. Thank you to Markus and the team for what commences a very exciting journey with the BMW M8! You can also follow directly at:
We also have our M8 8 Series Generations design in the Shmee150 Shop, a blend of old meets new, you can check them out now:
Thanks for watching, Tim

    • Good luck with this engine . Its rubbish. The worst since few years bmw ever made . Switch oil every 10-15k km helps a lot to keep it alive however its global problem with dying engine .

    MooseyMooseyPrije 4 mjeseci
  • My opinion doesn't matter. I know it's a beast of a car but aesthetically it's sooo bland. And I don't think the spec helps. It's like a less attractive mustang. There are no lines to it, nothing pops. I've always agreed with shmee about silver wheels with darker coloured cars. I think blood red bodywork with black wheels and accents would help it come alive. I'm sure it's a superb car never the less, congrats

  • I find BMW heading for Bland MW status I'm afraid. They are fine, but as Clarkson said, the interior just feels like an upspecced 1 or 3 series. They need to make the top end cars more individual. Look at the Bentley, or an Aston. Design flair, excitement. I popped to my Cheltenham dealer and looked at the entire range. They don't have the drama of a Merc interior, or the style of, say, Range Rover. It's the 'family' feel. I loved the M3 and M5 I had a few years ago, but I want more from BMW..not just performance, especially at M8 Comp money
