BMW M2 Car Cover

Is the BMW M2 OEM car cover available yet? If so, please share the BMW part number.

Also, what car cover would you suggest for indoor application.

Thanks for your help/suggestions.

Note: car will be stored inside a heated garage for winter and the car cover will only be used for indoor.

Perhaps the standard 2 series version will suffice bearing in mind wider wheel arches by about 1 inch each side but a small stretch should fit?

I highly doubt there would be an M2 specific car cover released by BMW though?

BMW made one for the 1M Coupe.

They probably will make one for the M2

Really, that's pretty cool, kinda surprised for such low volume but that's good then for the OP.

Low volume = big profit for BMW

They just order a batch of 500 from a sweatshop in China for a few Euro each, quadruple the price and then wait for the enthusiastic putters to open their wallets

Hi,

I can vouch for these people as I'm on my 4th set !

Would be interested to see what sort of deal you'd be able to get

I'd say there would be a possibility. They made one for the 1M and that was much lower production. I bought mine from the USA and bought back to the UK. I know it was certainly a lot cheaper then getting a customised one for 500.

To me this is a waste of money. I use an old sheet to cover my car in my garage and it works perfectly.

I have been talking to Specialised Covers, and they have offered you guys a discount of 35 pounds and a couponcode which you can include in your communication with them if you want to order a car cover.

If you are interested in a car cover, then I have a special discount for you guys available. Just drop me a direct message and I will share the code with you, which you can include in your order email to the sales team of Specialised Covers.

I hope this is something worthwhile for you guys. When my cover is ready, I will make photos of it and share them here.
