Interesting... White dials with red needles on the instrument cluster? I thought it was confirmed red?

Tech manual describes the M2's turbo as "TwinScroll Turbo", whereas the BMW website says "M TwinPower Turbo" (http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...oom/index.html).

2017 BMW M2  [0.00]
24 lbs of interior sound deadening material removed compared to the 235i. Good, we'll be able to hear the N55, which is a great sounding motor, a lot better.

Please, no whining about the M2 being too loud for DDing.

Same thing. TwinPower is BMW's name for the single, twin scroll turbocharger used. Makes it sound more technical and what not.

I didn't know the gloss kidney grilles came standard (p. 10)? Thought those were a MPerformance add-on....

Also, does the chart on page 41 show the F87 wheelbase as being longer than the F80 wheelbase?

They're using "M TwinPower" for the E82 M and F80, right beside it. I know it's marketing, but they clearly didn't know what to put there when the manual was published.

They are talking about the middle of the grille. The m performance is all black not just the interior.

My N20 also says TwinPower turbo, it refers to both turbo and valve magics.

"A Gurney is an aerodynamic component and functions as a tear-off edge. The Gurney was so-called after a former Formula 1 driver. "

The Gurney flap increases the downforce of a wing while producing very little extra drag.
Maybe helps to reduce rear-end lift on trunk lids of street cars.

Dan Gurney is an American racing hero, the first of only three drivers to win races in F1, Indy Car, Sports Cars, and NASCAR. (The others being Mario Andretti and Juan Pablo Montoya.)

And he was the first driver (together with A.J. Foyt at Le Mans) to spray champagne on the winners' podium.

Just FYI.

The gloss black vertical "double bars" of the M grilled are standard, along with chrome kidney rings.
The M Performance grilles replace the chrome kidney rings with gloss black to match the bars.

And the F80 wheelbase in the chart is most likely a typo, as Artemis has posted.
Everything I've read about the M2's wheelbase indicates that it's about 5" shorter than the F80/F82.

So its actually going to have a 8000rpm display??

Every car I've seen so far has only had a 7000

I would assume this is the correct info. Interesting to see a last minute change.
