Working on x5 (40i) before years end because the Tax law changes in Illinois. This is the change ——Trade in credit will be capped at 10k:

So today if I trade in 100k car and buy 100k car I pay zero tax. If I try the same thing on January 1st the I would pay tax on 90k.

I live in Chicago so I pay 9.5% tax (state, county, Chicago)

I have a 2019 x4 that is worth 45k on trade not great considering it stickered at 63k but "niche car .... No one wants x4 etc etc etc """" . I've gotten quotes as low as 38k, 40k , 43k over the past two weeks.

I am risking losing out on some decent money if I wait for the CS and then the car is over my upper limit. Which it would mostly likely be.

My payoff is actually 49,380. So I would break even. I also have 4250 in rebates and 9.2 discount on a 2020.

My big problem is that there are pretty much just leftovers at this point. Cars with 22s that I don't like. Pretty late in the season for winter sets . Tire rack has one option today. Bad dealer lot builds.



Also tried my luck at m2 comp. seems like ok deal

So I may just sit on the x4 if I don't find a x5 I like within reasonable driving distance .

C'mon Poochie, that was my best troll attempt. Trying to pass time while my wife is slaving away on the computer. Trolling the forum while watching 90 day fiance. Audi speaking the truth https://www.bmwblog.com/2019/12/13/audi-design-boss-critical-of-bmw-sports-activity-coupes/

LoL.. Sorry, I came from from FWD cars like the Acura RSX Type S and the Mini JCW so when they're mention, they peak my interest in a nostalgic way.. Carry on..

The 2017 Honda Civic Type R 07:43.8 Ring lap time was quite an achievement. Deserves our respect. Performed by Honda, dry track with an optimum ambient temperature for the best tire and powertrain performance, full floating roll cage, removed infotainment and removed rear seats.

So far BMW M has not disclosed yet the official Nürburgring Nordschleife M2 CS lap time.

Some considerations:
  • FWIW: back in January 2016 a German source stated that already in 2015 BMW was testing an M2 pre-production car with the S55 engine (instead of the N55 engine) and that it lapped the Nürburgring Nordschleife "more than 8 seconds faster than the M4" (see here); remember that the Sport Auto M4 lap time was 07:52 (see list here);
  • M2 Competition lap time:
    • reference is usually made to the 07:52.36 lap time by Sport Auto (Horst von Saurma) in October 2018 (M-DCT M2 Competition - no manual) (see list here + full lap video here);
    • Sport Auto pinned the following comment under its video: "Hi guys, just one more information: The official lap time of BMW M testdriver Jörg Weidinger in the M2 Competition was 7.50 min";
  • during the closed room M2 CS preview event in Brussels (Sep 17), a BMW guy mentioned "about 10 seconds faster than the M2 Competition";
  • on the M2 CS release day (Nov 6), a Belgian YouTuber posted an M2 CS walkaround video (see here); he mentions (02:35-02:40) that the M2 CS laps the Nürburgring "8 seconds faster than the M2 Competition".
As 07:42 is the lap time of the first generation Porsche Cayman GT4 (981) (manual, of course - no PDK) clocked By Sport Auto (Christian Gebhardt) in 2015, I hope that the M2 CS manages to perform that lap time. I think that it's gonna be a close call (± 07:43).

BMW M lap times (source: here)
  • 7:27.88 = F82 M4 GTS
  • 7:35 (previously 7:38) = F80 M3 CS + F82 M4 CS
  • 7:38.92 = F90 M5
  • 7:4?.?? = F87 M2 CS
  • 7:48 = E92 M3 GTS
  • 7:50 = E46 M3 CSL
  • 7:52 = F82 M4
  • 7:52.36 = F87 M2 Competition
  • 7:54 = F10 M5 Competition
  • 7:58 = F87 M2
  • 8:05 = E92 M3
  • 8:07 = E52 Z8
  • 8:09 = E63 M6
  • 8:12 = E86 Z4 M Coupé
  • 8:13 = E60 M5
  • 8:15 = E82 1M
  • 8:22 = E46 M3
  • 8:22 = E36/8 M3
  • 8:35 = E36 M3
  • 8:50 = E30 M3

So is the consensus that at $79,999 it’s a sell out that you will have to be first in line for and at $83,600 (obviously total speculation price) it sits on dealer lots like the M4 CS?

The UK price is 75,320 GBP (bmwblog) so take out 20% VAT and convert to USD (at 1.325) its $79,839.

I see them advertising without destination charge at $79,950

This is obviously a forum where views and opinions are presented and discussed – and seldom agreed upon. Ultimately, I applaud anyone and everyone for getting what is best for THEM. So, my replies to your posts are not intended to be ‘right,’ rather, just an ongoing discussion regarding the topic at hand.

Are you looking to track you M2CS? I assume such to be the case given your consideration between a 911 S, 718 GT4 and M2CS?

You indicate the 911 S is too expensive at this time, and you are not interested in a GT4 because it is currently only available with a manual transmission. True, but the starting price of a new GT4 is $100K ($113K for 911 S), both significantly more than the projected $84K for the M2CS. The GT4 is comparable to the 911 S, but neither are comparable to the M2CS when it comes to price or performance.

You indicate you want something more powerful than a 718 CGTS. If you are a tracker, I am sure you realize there is far more to track times than ‘power.’ I am not going to go into comparison between the GTS and M2C regarding performance, track or otherwise. Two completely different cars, and I have my own opinion. What I will say about ‘power’ is that the M2C really doesn’t offer anything over the GTS when you take into consideration variables such as weight; the GTS weighs some 600-650 lbs less than the M2C.

So, as to the topic of this thread - and regarding ‘power’ - you reference wanting an M2CS. The best comparison is the M2C. The M2CS offers no significant weight-reduction compared to the M2C. Although the M2CS (444 hp) offers 39 hp more than the M2C (405 hp), they both offer the same torque (406 lb-ft). Again, with track reference, the 39 extra hp is nominal, and only ever really going to come into play during high speeds along straights. So, comparing the M2CS to the M2C, not sure where you are getting any significant power gains?

If you want a M2CS, that is awesome. I have zero problem whatsoever with anyone’s desire or preference toward any purchase they decide to make. All I am trying to say is (1) the M2CS is not comparable to the GT4 or 991 S in performance or price. (2) As per your interest in more ‘power,’ the M2CS offers no significant power gains over the M2C, nor the 718 CGTS in relative terms.

If your purchase interests do not revolve around tracking, then none of this means anything, power or otherwise. The M2C, M2CS, GT4, 911 S all offer more street power than any road can handle. It would simply come down to what you want and can afford. If you want an M2CS, go for it. I am sure it will be great!

///AVM
Thanks for your advice. I'm just looking for a fun and fast car. Not interested in tracking due to the danger involved. Looks like I'm getting a M2 CS if I can get an allocation. Eventually when I can afford it, probably a 911 or possibly a PDK GT4.
