Trim choices for the M2?

Hello, I was wondering what the trim choices for the M2 would be, The same as the M3/M4? Same as the M235? Maybe something new? I haven't heard anything from anyone about trims yet.

Anyone got any ideas?

I hope the materials of the dash is less cheap. It's probably the only thing I really don't like about my M235i.

Well you should have the option of full leather with contrast stiching which will include the dash.

The plant making the 2-series isn't capable of BMW individual as I understand, so we might be "stuck" with an interior similar to the regular 2.

Full leather is not an individual item, its an option on all M cars. The colors will probably be standard M colors but you should still be able to get leather wrapped dash and trim with the contrast stitching. The 228 and M235 do not have the option of leather dash and trim.

As long as it's more than black, coral red or oyster I'll be happy.

Sakhir orange and sonoma beige would be nice along with the M3 seats.

I think the color choices will be the same as the M4. That would include the Orange seats or the Beige seats or Black. I personally would like to have the M2 in Austin Yellow with Black wheels and Black Interior. Of course I would opt for the Full leather so the dash, console and some trim parts would be wrapped in leather. The other interior trim pieces I would do in Carbon Fiber. Honestly I don't need M car power. If I could get a 228i M Sport with all the goodies and the Full leather dash and trim in the same quality leather that goes into the 'M' cars I would be very happy. I do not need that 'M' badge. I just want a BMW that drives like one and the 228i does that. It is at a price point where you have to give up the super nice interior though. The 228i is BMW level driving car with a Volks Wagon Jetta interior.

It is an individual option that is available as "standard" on M cars, so I guess it is a matter of definition. But since the factory can't add this item on regular cars I find it highly unlikely it will on the M2.

Just look at this post from SCOTT26, http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showp...&postcount=207

There will be no Individual for the BMW M2 or the 2er. The factory is not set-up to deal with Individual orders. There are dealers in the US submitting customer queries for Individual colours and interiors for the M235i despite being told it is not possible.

If it does not have nicer leather and the ability to have full leather dash and trim then it is not an M car by definition. All M cars have these upgrades. If the M2 is not going to have these things there is really no reason to purchase one over an M235i, just for a little more horse power and torque. There will be nothing to differentiate aesthetically from the M235i other that color and maybe a carbon fiber roof. I really think at this point it is all speculation, nobody knows for sure any of this, we are just guessing at this point. I would not buy an M car that had VW plastic dashboard.

Yeh a leather dash like other M models will make me happy. I forgot about that.

I agree with you. BMW needs to step it up with these hard plastic POS interiors they've been cranking out lately.

They need to keep it minimal, remove the bllngy aluminium pieces and add alcantara.

Carbon fiber roof, alcantara trim and cloth seats too much to ask for? :

M cars have the ability to have full leather...period!! Without the upgraded interior you may as well get the M235i and save 10+ thousand dollars. The peformance upgrades will not be that great compared to the M235i. If they were it would hurt M4 sales. It only sounds dumb because your comprehension skills are lacking. I suggest Silvan learning center.

You're a complete idiot and a troll.
- No M cars under an M5 have ever had leather dash offered as an option until just now, period. Maybe you should do some research. So an E46 M3 is not an M car because it didn't have a full leather dash?
- EPS, brakes, suspension from the M3/4? Hell yes that is worth it and a pretty beefy upgrade. Whether we get any significant weight savings or not, who knows, but I sure hope so
- Having an uprated N55 instead of a detuned S55 is exactly BMW's way of protecting M3/4 sales from the M2.

I was not talking about old cars I am talking about the current M line up. Not once did I say Older M models. Once again...reading comprehension. To many the things you mentioned are not worth 10+ grand price difference. Name calling is not necessary and gives away your lack of intelligence.

If anybody is more worried about what trim you are getting over other key areas?
Then perhaps the M2 is not for you...

That's wicked to hear!

If you had a limited budget and time constraints, what would you have them focus on? Performance? Looks? Luxury? What are your priorities...

You can see the direction they are taking - and rightfully so.
