Great video and thanks for sharing! This will be my first BMW and first new sports car. I went to a dealer last October and test drove a competition. I decided I was buying one but it was October and I was mid home purchase (buying a BMW wouldn't have made my banker very happy) Then 3 days after the test drive the LA auto show happened and they unveiled the CS. Based on the timeline of the delivery and my home purchases plus a garage addition the CS seemed a better option and I really liked the CS over the competition. One big factor was the wheels.. would have needed a set of wheels along with the comp purchase..aside from that I just like the CS more (hood, interior etc.). So I called my SA and put a deposit down on an allocation I was 3rd in line at the time.

I followed the news for a few months on allocations and when it started to appear things weren't changing for me in line position (the SA told me they were only getting one allocation) I tried calling other dealers to see if I could find a better spot in a line etc. I got second in line at an M dealer (they were supposed to get 2) They said they could guarantee me an allocation but wanted a 5k$ non refundable deposit they also needed 5k$ over MSRP (I fought and got signed paperwork stating it was at MSRP). In the end I figured worst case scenario I don't get an allocation and I'll just grab a comp at a discount and get wheels, hood etc etc.

I put my second deposit down March 10th (this was an allocation day and they thought cs may be coming through) Then Covid. Between that and having to get a special permit from the town to build my garage everything got delayed and the timing has just worked well aside from now taking delivery in probably December at least the garage will be done. The day allocations came through was the same day they broke ground on my garage and both were about a year in the making.

I just love it when a plan comes together! Enjoy your CS everyone, I know I will !!

Because it is the final form of my favourite car and if I didn't buy one I would kick myself forever.

I wanted something I could share special drives and car shows with the kids in. I wanted something I could throw an extra set of wheels in, drive across the country, do a track day or three, and drive back home in confident in knowing it would handle it well. I wanted something a little "special" that wouldn't catch too much attention on the street or at every gas station but other car nerds would get. I wanted something small, responsive, and quick. I wanted something in blue .

Was planning on adding a BMW in particular 1M to the garage so when a MSRP allocation for M2CS came up at local dealer I took it.

I didn't want the 1m to grow up with "only child syndrome."

and the person holding the spot before me dropped off the list.

It's the only new car under $100K that I just can't take my eyes off of. It just so happens that the name of this car starts with the same letter of the last car I really loved! ///M

I pulled the trigger on the M2 CS because, in the end, I just found the want was too strong. The heart wants what the heart wants, as they say, and I just couldn't stop thinking about it. I loved the OG M2 when it came out and figured BMW would make an M2 CS and/or M2 CSL at some point, so I started getting on dealer lists before said lists really ever existed. When the M2 CS finally debuted, I did have a couple of objections. First, the price. I was hoping the car would be introduced in the high 70's. But while a bit high, it is what it is and I decided that for a car that moved me emotionally as much as the M2 CS does that I didn't want to let that deter me. And to be honest, I'm not so sure that for what you get the M2 CS is expensive; rather, I think it's more that the M2 Competition is simply an incredible value. Second, while the exhaust sound improved, I still wasn't thrilled with the way it looked or sounded. But there are a few on the market I like very much and I look forward to upgrading soon after I take delivery. Everything else is pure positive and excitement. Styling-wise, the car is beyond stunning. I honestly can't think of a single BMW that I find more aesthetically appealing. I have not driven the car, obviously, but from the now many reviews available, the car's performance sounds to be more than considerable ... all with a proper 6-speed manual transmission and real back seats (if you think they're too small, you don't have the history with 911's I do : ). Finally, the M2 CS represents the end of an era and I expect it will go down in history as the best and most important of its generation. I am certainly excited to take delivery and drive the wheels off of my incoming example!
