Thanks for the link. Surprised it is available online. I'm still going to support them, though, as the show is really good.

This was awesome, thanks for the share.

The history of BMW M has been told many a time, but it is one of those legendary stories that never gets old.

He called it an aerospace liquid silver in the video...

Think they just did that for one of the M5 Editions.

Very cool video.

Funny they did the interview with the M head in this room with the M5 and M2 as backdrops... but didn't go around the vehicles. Glad I got to see this!

The M3 wagon would be such a cool sleeper car! Oh well.

BMW will keep the M2 around because of its steering feel.
To show the world that the M division isn't just about luxury GT cruisers.

It's the same steering as in f8x, just in a smaller car.

I think pure metal silver is a new color just for the limited edition M5: http://www.motortrend.com/news/2016-...just-50-units/
I think it's silver grey metallic. Lighting makes it tough to tell!

There is another mystery (to me at least) silver that is used when m cars launch. I know it was used for sure on a z4 zagato roadster a few years back. Legend has it that it costs 100k!
