Final Thoughts

The M2/M2C/M2CS is just the best platform BMW has made in a long time. It’s fun and silly but just serious enough. Comfortable enough for a road trip but not enough to get used to it. Gets okay but not great economy. I did a total of right around 3900 miles and averaged 22.74 mpg. Over two dozen passes, lots of high altitude driving and lots of high-speed cruising means I’m pretty impressed with this no less. Gets mad looks from all kinds of people of all ages. It’s just likeable.

As for the drive…incredible. I love doing road trips, especially ones like this where I spend the vast majority off of the interstates. The west is just so incredible and dramatic, no wonder people come from all over the world to do road trips here. That said, what most people don't do are road trips in fun cars. You could cruise the interstate in an SUV, stopping at every nice hotel, you can camp out the back of your Subaru, you can clean out your own toilet in a dreadfully slow RV as you watch semis blast by you, you can get sick literally swallowing bugs as your ass goes numb on a bike, or you could hit the backroads in a phenomenal machine, throwing caution to the wind and trying to forget you have no spare and nobody to service your car within 500 miles. There's only one way to do it!

As for the roads...I think the MDH takes it!
