If you just added the M Performance accessories to the base M2 wouldn't it price about the same? Why the HiFi audio instead of HK, weight reduction?

lol that's what I figured just wanted confirmation haha thanks.

So basically this package is nothing you can't buy or add on top of the regular M2 besides the seats and the sound system and ashtray I believe....

This package is a bit of a disappointment.

The only thing I like about it is manual sport seats. This should be an option for the M2 from the very beginning.

I have my mind set on LBB so it makes the choice easy not to get this 'Performance Edition' since its only offered in AW.

+1 to that.
Same for cloth, or at least ventilated/perforated seats. It gets very hot where I live.

I think BMW is afraid of how good the M2 really is compared to the M3/4. They're overly limiting the specs in a poor attempt to keep it at the "bottom" of the lineup.

Why not either:
A) Make an M2 GTS, or
B) Make this "performance" spec include extra HP (we all know the engine is capable of it)

They should call this the Bro Package.

"Bro, check out my M2, it's 60 lbs lighter than stock and has an exhaust!"

"Cool, how many times have you tracked it?!"

"....uhh, I haven't Bro.."

I am not sure about that, why is the M2 CS coming?

So, all said and done, it's almost exactly $10,000 over the price of the "base" M2. Can't think of any reason why BMW makes you take the $2,500 driver's school as part of the package; at $7,500 it would be a good deal. All the other parts can be bought piece-meal (with the exception of the manual seats and downgraded audio and HVAC).

Fair enough but then what is the point of this package? 60lbs? Really? Go on a diet and take the old gym clothes out of your trunk and you'd probably save the same pounds...
