Luckily those guards can be easily removed / installed!

Mine are coming off too when I get my car, those fender arches are coming to the aussie market cars so there is a chance the US cars will have them too but I can not confirm ..

Wouldn't such springs be calibrated to the M3's or M4's weight? How about a part number? Would that be too much to ask?
they are hight ajustable so they will fit but they are not homologated by bmw for the m2 and probably voiding guarantee on kinematics
I guess it is just a matter of time before they get approved and released for the M2 CS I guess. I've waited for two whole years for this special car. I might just manage to wait a few additional months for the M Perfomance catalog.
I wouldn't hold my breath for that. They didn't do specific M spring for the F80/82 CS. In fact, all the F80/82/83 variants share the same MP spring despite of a significant weight difference among them. IMO the M2CS weighs close enough to adopt it.

One good example is that KW (the supplier of the suspension parts to BMW with F8X) already lists one Lowering Spring that fits across all variants of the M2/M3/M4.

No rush though...You won't "tolerate" stock height for too long...especially when it sits next to a lowered 1M everyday...

I wouldn't touch a thing. You'll just end up with this which is how most of the M2s on Instagram look to me.

Manual transmission gear lever height in combination with deleted armrest.

Another Spanish one surfaced last month (see here):

And to add insult to injury, that was already a 'correction' of a catastrophic first restoration:

Luckily it was on a copy.

Let the people do whatever they feel fitting to their vehicle.

Jesus was a mythical figure anyway and those paintings are merely just artistic interpretation of descriptions passed on. Not that much different from customizing your ride, to match your vision.

Sure. But the only reason I use Instagram is to use #m2cs tag.

What confronts me is often disturbing. It's Frankenstein. No. 1 is some guy in Canadia that could basically have dropped a turd on his car and it would have looked better and most certainly drive better. Plus a whole other collection of travesties. Then there are "classic shots" of the owners themselves looking back longingly at their gaffa taped hamster of a car.

These freak shows always use the #m2cs tag. I have no idea why. I have to wade through a lot of very unpleasant images to see one or two worthwhile gems.

It's like accidentally keying a search term into Google image search that presents images of something you can't un-see.

Ok. Rant over.

What is that seemingly gapping hole in the center console? That does not look finished?

Not sure how distribution is decided, no adjustable coilovers from factory, but you can but the MP HAS for EDC equipped cars.
