So how do you/your dad like the M2 in comparison to the Z4M coupe? I sold my m coupe 2 years ago and haven't found anything that I like enough to replace it, but the M2 has been intriguing me lately...


I will get him to post some impressions, but from what he has told me, the two are definitely comparable in spirit. Obviously the M2 sits higher and has a different sound, but both are more of the “back to basics approach”.

He loved the raspy and high revving nature of the S54, but he’s also getting used to having more torque down low. And he’s specifically mentioned how well the M2 goes around corners.

One thing I remember about the Z4MC is that it was always on, and dialed all the way up - the M2 can also behave that way (as a little monster), but it can also be driven slowly and easily as well. I know that’s one thing he also likes.

Not everyone has the integrity that you have. I know people whose parents gave up everything for them, and they still grew up to be jerks. You deserve all the credit you are getting.
Btw, your list of past and current vehicles is awesome. I came from a 135i, and hope to get a Cayman next, in the distant future
