PHX M2 owners

Do any PHX M2 owners have a preferred shop where they go to get parts such as diffusers, spoilers, etc. installed? I'm being told that BMW will only install M Performance parts and not other aftermarket equipment.

Hey there, we're in the process of adding an M2 to the garage, and I don't want to hijack your thread but it would be great if we could make this sort of a one-stop-shop thread for Phoenix parts installers, service shops, trusted PPF installers, etc. There are a lot of Phoenix M2 owners on the forum it would be great if we could aggregate their trusted contacts into a thread. Again, I don't want to hijack your thread, I'm just glad you got one started for our area. And if there's already one for our area and I missed it, just point me in the right direction!

Hey there friend. I'm unaware of another AZ thread, and that's why I started this one. It would be nice to find some reputable shops and part installers in the PHX area. Post here if you find any.

I would suggest AZ EURO for installs and if you need any parts locally I'm here at vividracing and we are local and can get anything you need for your M2. Shoot me a PM if you have any questions or need quotes on parts

For PPF and tint I can recommend Protective Film Solutions without hesitation. They do great work and stand behind everything they do.

I am a DIY guy for everything else so I am afraid I can't help with the rest.

Someone bought the manual white '17 M2 from certified benz & bimmer last month. Who was it??
I test drove that and it was amazing. Couldn't pull the trigger at the time, though..

I just purchased a 2018 LBB 6MT. I'm in Gilbert and I've only seen two other M2s in Phoenix since they came out (except for what I've seen on dealer lots).

I don't have any shops to recommend as I'm rather new to Phoenix.

How many Phoenix M2 owners do we have? Any interest in getting together?

Just now re-visiting this thread, congrats on the new M2! Mine is also LBB, we're in Chandler. I've seen one black one up in Scottsdale, and a white one that looked like it had been beaten on, also in Scottsdale. There's one other LBB LCI here in Chandler, also active here on the forum. I think I've only seen 3 or 4 since we started looking, that's a very small number over a full year of paying attention.

For service, I've only had to do the 1200 mile break-in and we had Chapman on Camelback do that. We ended up going with OzBraz for our wrap, they did a Suntek-Xpel combo, they're close to us and well reviewed. They did a great job, we're very pleased with how it came out. Haven't done any mods, other than simple aesthetic stuff, so don't have any techie recommendations for our area yet.

Nobody has attempted a gathering yet, but we ought to give it a shot. There are at least 3 of us in Chandler/Gilbert, maybe more that I'm forgetting about.

Another new owner in Ahwatukee. 2018 LBB LCI DCT (wish it had a manual), love the car. I have already done a 1,000 mile trip to eastern Arizona and heading back again next weekend. I always go to the Scottsdale Cars and Coffee event with my dad and wife. Really fun, drool worthy event.

I will often do Canyon Lake early morning runs, or will head up to Prescott via 89A then back through Vulture Mine. I'd be game for a meetup sometime.

Where did you order yours from? I placed my order with Chapman on Camelback. Waiting for it to hit production...

Chapman in Chandler. I had originally ordered a white one that I backed out of because I wanted to switch to HS.

Nice! I've ordered a HS M2 as well. Maybe I'll see you around!

Parts Score in Scottsdale has done all my work from my old e92 M3 to my current M4 & e46. Great shop & genuine people. The owner Jason has a badass signal green M4 & the lead tech Ray has a supercharged E92.

Yes it's been waiting at the port now for almost a week. Was hoping it was going to get on the earlier ship, but I guess not.

Yes I do. I was looking into Detail Boss in Scottsdale earlier this year. I still have to get my truck done as well.

No I just looked into them earlier this year because they were the closest to me out of all that had the highest ratings I could find. Let me know who/if you find any place better!

It's supposed to arrive in Cali on the 23rd. Who knows when it will get delivered here.

AGD auto glass & tint is where I took my S4 and they did a pretty good job.
