Nice video, what a hooligan! Anyone know whether that is stock or aftermarket exhaust? Either way, sounds great. One of the things I really appreciated about driving in England was the yellow light flash before getting a green light. Got everybody revving and ready to go.

Upon seeing this M2 video my mind sweetly drifted away to the short movie "C'était Un Rendez-Vous" ("It Was A Date") filmed by Claude Lelouch on a quiet Sunday morning in August 1976 in Paris: no dialogue, just the car speaking for itself in an insane way. Cult movie for petrol heads. Man, that sound - though clearly dubbed (the car moves slower than the dramatic engine sound suggests) - is outright *glorious*. Back in the day, the movie got the film producer into hot water with the French authorities for obvious reasons (see here).

Turn up your speakers and enjoy !

It's too bad he had to sell his M2. He made makes great videos and comes across as a humble and genuine guy. I was looking forward to seeing more his work on the M2.

Thanks for sharing!

A sudden change in his circumstances from what he said in a previous video. He already has an M135i, so running both was probably not an option right now.

Well, at least on the inside it sounds like a video game because the engine sound is artificial.

Seems cool but I feel like thats dangerous the yellow light lights up on all sides and some people tend to jump start on the yellow turning into green, while others would run the yellow turning into a red.

Was a great video. Engine does sound artificial unfortunately.. Good old E92 M3 V8 engine sounded good back in the days.

Dorchester Hotel always has exotic cars up front from the Arabs in town from the Gulf States as usual.

Reminds me of the tunnel run days. 6am start in central london on a Sunday, TVRs, Ferraris and anything with a fruity exhaust driving round a deserted london taking in as many tunnels as possible.

Great fun!
