I'm very surprised to hear that people have this opinion. I had an F32 before my F22 and the build quality and amount/type/feel of plastics seemed exactly the same to me. F22/F30/F32 interiors are basically the same anyways, the center console design is just a touch narrower on the F22.

Is the G42 available in a manual (stateside)? I was building an m240 and there was no option for a 3-pedal version on bmwusa. One of my friends just a year or so ago ordered a 6mt m240 convertible and that seems to be gone now

With near 100% certainty, there will be no manual transmissions anywhere.

The G87 will be available with a 6MT.

Damn I should go buy that 2017 6mt 240 that's been on the local CL for a few months now.

Sorry yes, only the G87. Looking forward to seeing that car. Basically a newer/better/faster version of the Supra, but available with a manual.

Perfect

The Zupra is absolutely horrific in the looks department

I had the feeling people are comparing the F22 to the current G-series 3er, i.e. the G20. The interior quality of the G20 is considered much better by most compared to the F30 (or F22).

The G20 is leaps and bounds better.

Well that's apples to oranges then. You can't say "the 2 series interior sucks compared to the 3 series" if by 3 series you mean the G20.

The F22, F30, and F32 interiors are nearly identical. As they were designed to be.

The MKIV Supra that everyone wants and idolizes has:

A 6-speed manual
back seats
twin turbos

I don't know how they got it so wrong, but thankfully the M2 Comp has all of those things and Toyota was even nice enough to make me reconsider my rule of "Nah, i probably don't want to own a BMW."
