Minneapolis M2's

Just curious if anyone on here lives in the Twin Cities area. Saw a brand new black M2 with MPE this weekend in Chanhassen. I'd love to talk with someone local about getting an M2 and your experience. Thanks!

Moved away from Mpls earlier this year but the only M2 I saw over the last few years was an LBB at Cars & Coffee. Might be able to talk to the guys at Imola to get some leads locally.

Mine is on a boat this week and happy to share my ordering experience. This is my 2nd car I've ordered from the same guy at the same dealership (BMW of Minnetonka). I've also got a good friend at Motorwerks so feel free to pit them against each other

Feel free to PM me or ask here.

@Mchoy - That LBB M2 at C&C is owned by the same guy who brings his 1M and the absolutely mint E30 M3. Hopefully you got to see those too!

Awesome, I may have seen your car in South Minneapolis near my house. I have not ordered one yet. If there's any chance of checking yours out sometime that would be awesome. Is yours a Dct or MT? I would be getting a 6MT but either way it would be great to check out the car in person.

Wow, congrats! I have heard good things about Minnetonka. When is yours due to arrive? What color and trans did you go with? I'll have to get the scoop on pricing you guys got.

Alpine White, DCT, and a bunch of the BMW carbon bits.

To be completely honest, I was planning on getting the 6MT (I love it in my current M235) but after borrowing an M3 for a day and getting a feel for DCT in traffic I really liked it. Plus the acceleration feels much more violent. I'll miss rowing gears, but I won't miss dealing with downtown traffic with a clutch and snow boots

Still haven't worked out final pricing yet, but I can let you know. Should be here the 3rd or 4th week of December.

Btw, my buddy at Motorwerks said they still have the Mineral Grey 2017 DCT if you want to see one in person and at least sit in it (can't drive it though because they are keeping the miles under the lease limit just in case). Let me know and I'll send you his info.

It will be interesting to see how much this Competition version with the S55 tacks on to the base price...

O yea, went with the tractor-spec yokohama iceguards on some 2 series knock-off rims. Looks a little cheap, but silver wheels hide the salt really well. If theres deep snow I won't trust other people so I'll take my beater, but thats maybe 10 days year at most.

Unlimited touchfree car wash down street. Its washed almost daily during winter months. No salt sitting on it for any extended period.

Yes! This! Holiday Washpass is worth every penny. I went there 3 times in one day last winter just because I could.

I actually had that for a few months and I found out they recycle the water in the wash until the spot free rinse. They obviously filter it and reuse it, but I never felt like it got my car that clean. Granted it's way better than letting salt sit on the car...
