I'm on the fence about transmissions. What do you mean the "throttle automatically engages as you release the clutch from a stop"? Is that something in BMW manuals? So, say I was stopped at a light, left foot on clutch, right foot on brake. If I let go of the clutch, and was slow getting my right foot on the throttle, the car would move forward and not stall?
Yes something like this. I believe they built-in the feature as a convenience thing for dealing with traffic. It would still stall if you let the clutch all the way out, but if you just take it to the bite point it will apply a degree of throttle. It feels unnatural however if you are used to performing the same function intuitively with your left leg and right as needed.

Donít let it be a deal breaker. Itís fine, just different. My F80 did the same thing. Overall the transmission is good and fits the nature of the car very well. The car isnít Ďpreciseí enough to order with an automatic, if that makes sense.

Great to hear the thoughts, was wondering about the exhaust and no one had written about it yet. My F80 is with the MPE so this was perfect.
Hoping there is more information on the MPE for the CS soon.
Also moving from a F80 with MPE to CS so would like to know early CS driver experiences with MPE

You will miss the MPE volume if you liked it in your F80. The CS needs a exhaust.

Congrats,color looks great.I finally saw a Misano Blue and a HS M2 CS this week.I preferred the Misano Blue.It suits the design better IMO.

The question everyone wants answered is does the 6MT gear shifter knob finally light up in an M2.

Awesome review! I have an 18 LCI M2 (n55) and I love it. But coming from an f80 it does feel underpowered. I am really thinking of upgrading to the cs but I'm considering just making my m2 into a more dedicated track car and go a little wild with the mods.

Yes I have a 2018 M2 as well. Very underpowered car. Hoping to get a CS as well. Hopefully allocations come out in September.

i am relatively new to BMW (spent many years in Audi S4's and RS4's before I knew better). Whenever people talk about how well the older BMW's handle (the E46 in particular) even compared to the newer cars it really makes me feel like I missed the boat.

I hated the way my base F80 handled. However, I love the way my CS F80 handles.

To hear you, a fellow CS owner, say it's still numb compared to the older BMW's confirms what I have always suspected. I spent my 20's driving AWD sh*tboxes when I should have made the move to BMW a decade earlier.

I made the move from Audi only when they stopped offering a manual.
