    Only tangentially related, but it looks like the Aussies are locally tuning their version of the G80 to try and match the E39 M35

    According to the document below, some colors were supposed to be delayed, but hard to know how accurate this document actually turned out:

    That's why I don't usually rely on what someone else posted - beyond using it as a starting point for my own research.

    I saw that document when it was originally posted - clearly it is not accurate at all (as is the case with much Genesis info - especially their website).

    That is why I said "supposedly" in my original post.

    But you did not make the minimal, extra effort to check the facts and add truly useful, current info. No gold star for you...

    You mean that if I quote an official document published by Genesis Motors, and further qualify it by saying "supposedly," that I should still doubt what they say and double check it against YouTube?

    When will your ridiculous personal vendetta stop?

    Personal vendetta? Really? Someone seems to have gotten up in the wrong side of the bed and can't take a litte ribbing... geez.

    Looks like the color is the new polar ice, pretty cool color but I would probably go with white or black on the sport model.
    The G80s handles better than my '15 and/or G80, it was the first thing I noticed, getting on/off of pretty sharp curve on on ramp doing 80+mph. Since I've owned a couple E39 540i/6 with sport suspension (same as an M5) I could tell right away it handles "almost" like my bimmer.

    I like the new steering wheel....thicker with better feeling, so smooth, no vibrations at all. It reminded me driving a '16 BMW 335i AWD, though, which is good!

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience

    That document seems pretty accurate for G80 Sports since it shows white, black, gray, blue and red available at initial production. Looks like they're eventually changing the black and red to different variations.
