Archie Hamilton buys an M2

I must admit i quite enjoy watching some of the UK YouTubers. Am hoping he doesn't camo wrap it like he did his A45.

Audi tried to persuade him to get a TT-RS but he made the right choice!

Hey isn't that Archie Hamilton the race car driver? But I read elsewhere on these forums that the M2 has a "terrible engine"...why would someone who races cars for a living, and must know something about motors, buy a car with a "terrible engine"? Oh, life's mysteries...

Great color choice! Black is the perfect M color. Those wheels look VERY nice.

I am telling him what to do to the car and what not... At least I hope he is listening and doing some decent tuning on it and not the standard stuff almost every influencer does.

I know, right?!

Seriously though...manual gear boxes are so...1985. Here's my top 5 list of things the world doesn't need anymore:
1. manual transmissions
2. freedom of speech
3. pizza
4. the Internet
5. pygmy marmosets (they've had their time, let some other monkey be cute and be featured on greeting cards for a while)

He got a superb deal on this car. Not because he is an influencer, just because they wanted to get rid of it because it is a pre-facelift.

Watching the latest video I'm not sure he knows how to turn traction control off. Holding the traction button five seconds vs tapping it. He seems to be making a lot of noise about rwd but in sport or whatever I can't imagine he is getting sideways at all.

Good to see he's got his priorities right as the first thing he's going to change is the exhaust, any idea what brand he's chosen?

He wants to keep that a secret, but it is a brand that does not have an exhaust for a M2 yet so they will develop it for his car.

I told him to replace more on the car, but I do not know if he will change the other things I told him, like the ASD harness, extra button for the PDC and black out the complete car.

Oh ok, well will be good to hear something different than the usual MPE, Akra, Remus etc.

Yeah he did mention he's going to black out the grilles & side gilles in his last video.

Make sure you tell him about the hidden exhaust mode.

Done that already, but in yesterday's video he did not have a clue what the difference is between MDM mode and DSC off.

Gonna explain him that now...
