Your pic is beautiful, and looks like the quality image we have come to expect from Visual.

Thank you for sharing.

It's never too late...it's too soon. Use up your youth, you're only second-guessing the end.

I have said it before, and I will say it again, M2 owners are among the finest ‘caregivers’ of their vehicles I have ever come across.

Every photograph looks like the vehicle is fresh off the production line. Then, to boot, you have the likes of Visual and Driver who literally should be employed by BMW to manage and execute their vehicle photo-shoots. Photograph quality amazing.

Meanwhile, my 718 CGTS continues to beg me for a simple washing that it MIGHT before year’s end. I feel ashamed.

Thanks for the compliments.

I keep my cars excessively clean not only because I'm OCD and I like driving them more that way, but because I'm a photographer by trade, and I believe part of what sets me apart from many other photographers out there is that I'm ready (and willing) to head out for pictures at any time (especially those times when other guys won't go). Tornado warning? I'm headed out. -10 and snowy? I'm on it. 125 on the blacktop? Where's my gear? Fog? RUSH to the location. I mean, that's what makes my photo's special to me. And yeah, I spend most of my time with sunsets, but I do all the rest as well.

That is awesome Visual!

Keep the pics coming! I truly enjoy all the M2C pics, and the great deal of pride M2C owners demonstrate toward the appearance of their vehicles.

If for no other reason, I would not make a good M2C owner because I offer my vehicles little in the way of washing and detailing. I drive the piss out of them and, other than routine maintenance, that is about it.

Mounted some new wheels on my baby, along with the M Performance coilover kit. Once it stopped snowing I decided to take her downtown for a few glamour shots.

Somebody pimped the hell out of their M2C. Everything from wheels to carbon fiber everything. Looks amazing, and as though he/she ordered the entire iND catalogue! Cannot even imaging how much money was dumped into this ride?

So how the hell does this car end up for sale on a Chrysler lot in Nevada? What a shame!

Somebody is going to end up getting one hell of an M2C . . . oh, and for the record, I have never owned an M2C, nor been to Nevada.

Yes. I'm super pleased with how they look. I really wanted the BBS FI-R wheels, which are truly spectacular, but these were the next best thing (to my eye) and much, much less expensive.

I agree, they look fantastic!

They are certainly on my short list!
