Don't worry about the exhaust. Its shape + some camo is a tell-tale sign that a diffuser is supposed to be mounted too.

Not to me. Take a look. The test mule mirror looks longer and more aerodynamic. Gatte's looks - aftermarket - sort of.

Great insights those pictures. Thanks!

Don't know about you, but I was never fan of the M3/M4 rear pipes, especially the big visible metal silent part that also appears now on new M2 mule. Otherwise except for mirors and hidden parts, M2 shape looks the same

I wonder if that's because the HKS car's mirror is folded up? It kind of looks that way to me...but I might be wrong.

How soon could I expect the M2 CS to be available for European Delivery?

Are there still incentives/discounts?

Glimpse of the all-new 788M Y-spoke wheels.

Though fuzzy spy shots, it looks as if we can add the 788M wheel design to the cool Y-spoke ///M wheels gallery featuring the 127M, 359M and 763M wheels (see here). And also looks like a wink to the 2er M Performance wheels (19" forged light alloy wheels - presented in Autumn 2013) painted all black that featured on the BMW GT6 Vision Concept (see here).

Thanks to forum fellow DGod for the heads up (M2 Competition + X3M spotted in Portugal at the Estoril race track).

They look they could be a modern interpretation of E46 M3 comp pack wheels.

That is definitely another look at Hockenheim Silver as well.

788M wheels in black look great with HS! Can't wait to see the full car.

Of course I also run Apex EC-7's in matte black as my track set and silver ZCP wheels as my street set on the e92 m3, y spoke affinity here!

I guess I am confused by the confusion

There was no comparison between white and orange in my post
I happen to like white and/or fire orange!
The post simply stated that 3 different women have said that for me, white is trying too hard, they have no opinion on orange because they havn't seen an M2 in orange...
My mid 20's secretary, my early 30's wife and my mom... in 3 different conversations
I didn't like hearing it either. I almost bought a white 17`AW with carbon fiber "package". I would have added front splitter, diffuser and carbon fiber roof to finish off the package.
They said I was trying to look like a just out of school lawyer buying his first car. Whilst my ancestors hail from eastern Europe, I was told I don't look eastern European enough to pull off the white. etc...
They are chicks, what do they know
I may be wrapping the M2 comp. Not digging any of these colors fully.

I wouldn't be so sure yet. I doubt BMW would change the body panel for a new mirror design, but you never know.
