Interesting M2CS and Jaguar F-Type Comparison.

Here's a refreshing change from the usual CS/Cayman comparisons. Lovecars review with Tiff Needell.

That was an absolute delight to watch!

Tiff behind the wheel of that M2CS is poetry in motion, you can really tell he is having so much fun shredding those tyres.

Show's the enjoyment of a cars driving pleasure can sometimes be better than straight bonkers performance.

I absolutely love the Jag. 2 seater ruled it out for me a long time ago along with Aston Martin Vantage. The M2/C/CS are such a unique car. Small, great looking, but with great utility and an incredible drive. The only other (sort of) 4 seater is the 992 which I think is a great looking car but stupidly priced at $330k on road in Australia. I'd spend that on an Aston Martin but not a lower level brand like Porsche. For that money it needs to be very special. I think the CS is just as special as the 992 (maybe more) and it's half the price. No brainer.

The interior of the Jag is really nice. The leather is really thick and the stitching really sets it off. With that said I find that the interior is so nice that I worry about it getting damaged more than I'd like to admit. The leather on the passenger side in particular. Shoes rubbing all over the leather. I also find some of the buttons and material that covers the seat belt latch to be sub par. This is the other problem with really nice interiors you start to notice the "lesser" items more.

I'm looking forward to driving a car that's a step down in price point. Less concern about wear and tear.

Having owned an F Type, I have to say it was not the most practical (it's definitely 2nd, or 3rd car material), but always felt special.

Absolutely. It's my DD, but my wife drives the family car. But also note that my ftype is going away this week in preparation for the CS.

A question.

Which auto reviewers do you think have as much car control talent as Tiff Needle ?

Randy Pobst, Chris Harris ? (wasn't going to include Perry McCarthy) (I find Tiff Needle and Nico Rosberg-testing road cars, have similarity in taking car up to the limit)


The other thing, particularly the Jag F-Type, they look so m much better in person, I guess most cars do.

The F Type looks way better but can't live with it due to lack of back seats, which I can't stand, because I can't even recline my chair.

That video has me re-thinking my color selection!

I've been 100% blue but every time I see a black M3/M4/M whatever they look so good! This video confirmed it.

Black or blue.....

I flipped from blue to black. The BSM is the only color that constantly captured my ❤️. Even though I know it's going to be hell since it will be dirty all the time.

Blue hides dirt very well.

The blue is polarizing. If you think it looks good, then I'd get it. You'll be very happy. If you feel that you are trying to like it, then pass. You won't be happy.

Tiff's final thoughts on the M2 CS

Tiff's final thoughts on the M2 CS:

"I mean it's a rare car. It's going to be forever a rare car. And one I'm sure no one who buys it will be in any way disappointed."

"I'd really rather like one, to be honest. It's my sort of car."

Owned Jaguar in the past. Beautiful machines, nice sound system but not the most reliable.
