I haven't seen a Sunset Orange one. In fact they have been making an X1 in that colour for two years now and I'm yet to see one besides mine.

It's beautiful in direct sunlight but kinda dull and brown looking in the shade.

Black is pain in the ass to keep clean but shows the curves really well.

just out of curiosity do most of you m2c owners drive a MT or DCT? How is it driving an MT in the snow?

Let me know if you are parting your car out before you sell. Those V3 Clubsports would be right up my alley.

Unfortunately I have already sold my car, with all mods included. It was my car in the Philippines.

Just a regular M2 owner with manual here but the low end torque is similar. Absolutely no problems in the snow (with 245/40/18 Blizzak WS80). A lot easier to drive than my old supercharged e46 with similar performance. The traction control is significantly better in the new car.

Hey all! Vancouver owner here. Already in the whatsapp and FB group.

I'm rocking Conti TS830P which are apparently a performance winter. Looking forward to see how it drives in the snow vs my previous cars (2012 MS3 on XICE3, and 1995 M3 Hankook Ipike(retired for rain/snow duty))

Next year i'm considering the new Conti VikingContact7s.

Same here. Kindly post meets here. I rarely use FB as well.

As to question on MT or DCT. My M2C is DCT, as so were my previous '16 & '17 M2's. I grew up driving MT since my 1st car, a '74 2002. When driving MT, I still heel-toe and double-clutching on roads & tracks. But I still prefer DCT. Just can't beat it when tracking.
