However the obvious question is how much space does an M2 door need to open for a 190lb 5'10 male to exit. LOL.

The M4 doors were huge so I think maybe another 50cm on the drivers side minimum to open.

I do have the sunroof on mine, so I'm not ruling out monkey bars and sunroof entry If only the 7 series key had filtered down
Euro parking are always "minimalist"!
You have many options: sliding floor, underground extension, etc.!!!

It seems I have 8cm each side of the wing mirrors at the door entry. Inside I think about 50cm to open the door. Hmm.

I'm going to measure a 2 series door at the dealer to see what space is needed.

That is exactly what I was thinking, I will be using it as my DD so I'm thinking that LBB would be a little too much. The MG just has a nice classy look to it but I have yet to see it in person.

Your garage looks bigger on the inside than it does from the steep entrance.

Hey, open your eyes, mostly Heineken and Guinness, no coolers (I wouldn't allow them on the property) and bud light lime is the wife's or someone brought to one of our many social gatherings. I don't even think I have ever had a cooler. The only thing I drink is everything but coolers!

But I wouldn't argue I do require a big purge. I do have a great deal of time as I probably won't see my M2 until mid 2017. So I remain lazy.

Here in Quebec, to have the whole front end and the rocker pannels of my future M2 covered with Xpel Ultimate is $1,650, so I figure that the whole car would be something around $6k to $7K.

Your M2 is awesome ! Be proud of it !

Thanks, I've probaly read the thread too fast and miss this post.

I would say that they did a great professional job on your car, $6K is a great price for the job done.

It is the best looking M2 I've seen so far !
