Surprised mine wife with M2C MT

Asked mine wife to take her M240xi for a spin and got home with new M2C MT

Hockenheim Silver is gorgeous color

I owned every ///M3 and I must say this M2 could be mine favorite so far...,didn't drive much but I love it so far.

Love the MT

It would be hard to let mine wife drive MT
Many guys can’t drive MT not speaking off women.

I love MT, so much more engaging to drive

Not a bad impulse decision. Probably one of the best in history if I'm honest. Congrats!

Awesome! Your wife is lucky!

I listened to my wife and took 1st M2 DCT black saphire
She loved the car

Now did not listen for the M2 comp and she says the car is too brutal with manual gear box

Perfect ...😀

Wow congrats to you both!

I think you would offer great perspective since you have owned so many previous M3s. Is it because you love this M2 the most because it is essentially a version of the older generation M3s?

My EX -wife#3 didnt care about cars I never told her when i bought a new car. She couldn't tell the difference as long as i bought the same color. 4-981s two were GT4s all in yellow plus 3 black M3s . She never noticed.. Got the HS M2C after the divorce no more having to stick with the same color or wife #3...carl

Thanks!

Just from driving about 100mil so far I noticed the car is more nimble, it weighs the same as M3 but that wheel base being shorter it makes a big difference.

The car is so predictable, feels great. So easy to drive.
As far as power goes I fallowing the break in procedure. Same engine as M3 just less HP which I will bring it to 500HP in summer.
I already bedded the brakes

Feels like mine E46, it's basically modern E46 M3 to me.

I wanted to get M2CS for mine self but unfortunately there is slim chance to get one. Called over 10 dealerships and contact people from forum and no luck
I am not in rush but will be getting E36 or E46 for mine self, just for track days.

Mounting snow tires on Monday on stock rims and more modes after winter.

very cool congrats!

It is one of the best cars on the market today for folks that need rear seats ocasionally. With camber plates, better rims and exhaust it can be an excellent dual purpose car to have fun on the street and track. Most likely one of the last models with just enough usable tech.

Thinking of ordering one ...
