Almost at 1200 miles with the M2C. This car is amazing, and I think I've shed the new car jitters and over-cautiousness (aka anal), and I'm loving this car. The weather gods have been extremely graceful for an early Spring (or lack of winter) here in DC and I've been able to enjoy my car quite a bit.

So, I'm thinking of scheduling my break-in service for Friday. I'll let you guys know if I feel any of the following:

Additional 50 HP
Louder exhaust noise
Better braking
Increased carbon fiber trim


On a serious note, how many of you dont let the dealer wash your M after service? Ordinarily I take the free wash, but this in the M. But then again, they washed it at delivery, right?

You get the service done yet? I got mine done at exactly 1000 miles, they'll do it early if you just schedule an appointment.

EDIT: You updated right as I typed out the above lol.

I didn't let the dealer wash my car, as typically they're obviously prone to scratches. Plus the less stupid teenagers hopping in the car the better.

Good timing. I'm home this week, weather is nice so I'll schedule it and then let her rip all weekend.

Good point about the teenager, I'll avoid it.

I always wash mine before the service and then say please don't wash it as you will make it dirty.

Also, I have a particular set of products that I use. I've seen in the past how deviating from your chosen products can result in the car looking "misty" and losing the incredible gloss I've worked to achieve.

Yes I fully admit I'm obsessive.

It must look good as they parked the car outside the showroom entry door last time. Bonus as it was in the shade.

If you care about swirls never let the dealer wash your car.

No, I'm not anal. The M2 just happened to turn 1200 as I pulled up for my break-in service

Yes, closest dealer to me. From a Service standpoint they've treated me very well for 18 years now. I bought my e46 from BMW Arlington, F10 from Silver Spring, and finally my M2 from Rockville. But Rockville serviced all the cars.

Not sure how long you've been in the area, but VOB used to operate from the now temporary service building. Then they built the showroom next door, and service down the street. Then literally within a few years they tore the new building down and are making the mega facility next door. They've been expanding fast

I called a couple of dealers who had the exact spec I wanted (HS, exec, DCT) and got a great deal so I jumped on it.

You will get your at the perfect time - Spring. So these days when the roads are not good to drive the M2, or when I'm not driving it, I watch every damn youtube video on the M2. I swear I've watched every one because now I'm getting M2 videos in different languages I've reached the end of the internet. You can do the same.

One thing is for certain, you will love the M2C. Its a blast!! I cant wait for the break in service

I would never let anyone wash my car.

When I picked up my MY20. BSM. It had never been touched by the dealer and I drove it home put it in my garage and PDI the car myself.

Right now the car has PPF over the front end- my car is currently sitting in my garage waiting for me do a paint correction. Giving my car was never touched by the dealer and I can tell the difference. Went over my paint with a high power LED light and find to behold BMW factory did an amazing job keep light scratches and spiderwebs off the paint.

I was very impressed to find how well the paint looks directly from BMW. So I'm only doing a light correction. But again I'm OCD on my cars.
