I can only emphasize what acl26 mentioned above. The track is way better than Mission so you get much more for your money. Some people drive down the day off to save money on hotel costs, but I don't recommend that. The ridge is close to Olympia and there are several descent priced hotels in the area and a Casino about half way between Olympia and the ridge.

The TSS group is also a great group of guys, I was able to get people to do ride alongs as much or as little as I wanted when I first started.
Thanks

Congratulations on the awesome car! I'd be up for coming down, I get a lot of stuff sent to the US side anyways. When is your first meet?

Anybody here put a deposit down for the M2 CS?

I love that it comes with all the M performance carbon parts and 450hp, but I wonder if it's going to be like the M3/M4 CS and by the time it comes out its spec will be overshadowed by the next gen M2. It looks to me like every one of our dealers here has a CS at the moment and you can get them below MSRP.

I haven't seen a single M2C in town yet.
Yesterday I saw a blue 2017 (identical to mine but didn't look like it had MPE) on the highway in Coquitlam so we drove side by side for couple of kilometers

Vancouver Windshield Repair / Replacement

Does anyone know of a good shop that does windshield work on ICBC?

I got a "star burst" chip in mine while driving on the Coquihalla (a pickup truck a few cars ahead veered off onto the debris covered shoulder and kicked up a bunch of rocks).

I've taken my car to a few shops to see if they could attempt a repair but the damage is so close to the edge that they're afraid to try pressure filling it with resin because it will likely make it worse... 😓

Headlight Condensation - M2 Adaptive LED

I noticed for the first time yesterday, some condensation inside the headlights of my M2.

The car is less than 1-year in service so I'm guessing that replacements will be covered under the factory warranty... but I'm curious to know if anyone else has encountered this 🤔 seems strange to occur so soon.

FWIW, I insisted on getting adaptive headlights because the '97 E-Class I used to drive in the UK had something similar (but vertical axis only) and it made a big difference for night time driving - would highly recommend this option for anyone who enjoys curves in the dark 😇

I have used Broco? At Cambie and No 3 in Richmond, filled a small chip, happy with there work. Also had ICBC claims done there.

Thats not good. Hopefully just a change of the temp and a one off. Anyone else experiencing this?

Hi guy, excited to be picking up my 2017 LBB tomorrow. Bad timing for the snow though! What are you guys running as your winter setup? Thinking ahead to next winter. Are there meetups happening either from here, or a whatsapp group or a facebook group?

Nah, this should be the end of snow now.
I run 18x9 ET30 720form wheels with Blizzak WS80 (square setup). The whole setup was about $2200 including taxes.
I'm not aware of any regular meetups.
Don't know if the thursday evenings at Byrne crossing are still happening.

Woop! Fellow Golf R member now making a switch over to M2. I definitely remember that facebook group. We should start one for F87s!

If any of you are keen, I can add people to a group chat consisting of 60+ M2,M3 and M4 owners.

The Golf R was next on my list to test drive... but I didn't get past the M2 😂 seems like a nice beast though - more so if you consider value/$ spent. Aesthetically though, the lines of the Golf don't excite me nearly as much as the curves of the M2 🥰

Woah?! Is this a group of locals?
I've been a BMW driver for maybe 10-years but I'm new to "the scene" 🙂
