Tom....u can call BMW Genuis - 1.844.4GENIUS (443-6487) BMW Genius

no wait time for me (and they were the ones who gave me the boat name)
Congrats Franklin! It sure has been a longer wait than in 2011 when we got our 1Ms. My PCD is June 13th , car is at port since May 14th.
Maybe you two will keep these...?

way too soon to tell....gotta hit the track first.

Street driving i'm normally putting around but the M2 is easier to drive and more comfy. Overboost isnt as abrupt as in the 1M.

Still need to do more driving...

Franklin, Hurry up and get some more commuter time ! Roll on up to DFW or do some driving tours and get your 1200 mile service done and some real brake pads.
