Great write-up! looks like a trip if a lifetime! Very impressive.

However, the base M2 is a true M car. A pure drivers car.

Wow, super write-up and amazing pics.

It sure brings back memories of my two BMW.ca MTours in 2016 & 2017.

BTW, any of you attending the BMW Canada M Festival next month at Mosport?

https://bmw.mfestival.ca/

We'll be flying over. So perhaps can see you all there.

First of all, Congrats on your car. Nice spec. Thanks for the posting the pics and details. This is exactly what I want to do, for my next BMW. It was also nice to get a Canadian's experience Nice plate by the way. Will have to look for it, while driving around Toronto... Lol Enjoy the car man !!

Thanks! Your trip looked just as exciting. You definitely went to more cultured (less car cultured?) places than I did, which Ill definitely be looking to explore on my next ED!

Good luck with the next few months. The wait for re-delivery is by far the WORST part of ED. Took 56 days for mine to make it stateside...

Any mod plans?
Thanks Exar Kun ! I really enjoyed the photos in yours as well. A lot more scenic than just the car :P

I had quite an extensive list of mods planned prior to my trip, but honestly, after driving it, there's not much that really needs tweaking. I really like the Euro look so Ill definitely be getting the front reflector deletes and swapping out the amber signal bulbs. The rear muffler will definitely be getting painted in a satin black. I have a BMS Clutch stop ready.

And then just full body Xpel Ultimate and Ceramic Pro, plus window tints.

Thats about all for this year before I store it for the winter.

Thanks afisherunc ! As much as I'd like to say this is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, I'm hoping Im fortunate enough to do it again in the future... with potentially a P-car
