Question What did you do to your M2 today?

I thought I'd start up a thread similar to that on 1 addicts. Since I've now owned my car for a week a few of my first posts will be a little off on the date.

4/22/16 Picked up my M2 at the performance center in Spartanburg and proceeded to drive home over the next 2 days.

Got pulled over on the 1000 mile 2 day trek back. Take a close look at officer friendly. I was going to see if he would pose but thought that might be pushing my luck.

Also, installed my Burger downshift blocker after I got home. http://www.burgertuning.com/downshift_blocker_BMW.html

I dialed 800 831 1117, entered my production number and heard "your vehicle is at the port awaiting a shipping vessel."

Thanks so much, been a long ride, looking forward to seeing yours. Yeah, Denver weather is very weird... but the M2 handled it like a champ, I love this car.

I just sat around pissed that I still don't have my production number. Not nearly as much fun as you guys have been having. My time will come.

I blacked out my rear reflectors with 3M 1080p gloss black wrap. Don't have my Xpel scheduled for another 2 weeks. They just vacuumed the highways here, so hopefully I will survive until then...
