See my previous posts, I have pasted the main part of it but it is in French. Since we are talking about Belgium there is certainly a Duch version of it... but probably not an English one.


Here is a (not too bad) google translation:

Congratulations! You have been identified by a member of the BMW M community in Belgium or Luxembourg as being among the first to have the privilege to discover the latest model of the BMW M range in preview, 6 months before everyone!
LIMITED EDITION.
This unique model will be produced in a very limited edition and will offer you unparalleled driving pleasure. It features ultra-lightweight carbon fiber, a unique interior and equipment inspired by high-performance motor racing, as well as the typical M whirring to make the macadam vibrate at every race.

The M2C is a leased car though (with a purchase option at end of the leasing) ...preferred to lease that one since I was not sure that a turbo engine would be my cup of tea.
Cool that you kept both of your previous M3's. I owned my Z4M + M2 for two years besides each other and sold my Z4M at the end of last year. So that is my BMW M history for BMW....my other BMW's were all non M models (some of which I also still have / e46 325i wagon)

I did not receive this invite at this point (I also don't know if I have ever registered for BMW M League or something like that after my M2 delivery, because I did not care that much about it back then). But I got something better in my mail; the opportunity (from a close contact at BMW) to already say yes to a reservation of an M2 CS (deposit payable from 16 Sept). There will indeed be around 2.000 - 2.200 M2 CS with only 45 cars for Belgium.

It was a really friendly offer, but I'm not going to make a CS reservation. Selling my MY17 M2 on the used market and then paying that much more extra for the M2 CS is a bit too much money for me to spend on a BMW 2 Series (for my personal taste). Yes the M2 CS is probably going to be awesome and will hold its value rather well. But I buy cars to enjoy for now and not with the intent of future value or future sale. I also drive them as much as possible (the more miles, the better). So, if I would buy an M2 CS, then I have a really expensive M2 in my garage that I drive everyday and on track. If I never sell it (...which would probably be the case), then all this future value has no real meaning and it stays a 2 Series with a lot of money in it.

Gotta say, I'm pretty jealous. I always wanted to be invited to a special manufacturer unveiling.

So you got an early bird offer.

Early 2011, Belgium got allocated 41 or 45 out of 2700 scheduled 1M cars worldwide. The number of allocations was significantly increased around September 2011 to meet the unexpected strong demand (early 2011 through mid 2012: 6309 1M cars were produced).

Both pictures shown below were displayed during registration. The first one looks like the upper part of the M8 front seat.

For a start: check the information mentioned in the first post of the dedicated thread ("BMW M2 CS spy pics and videos").

Don't think so...maybe this M4 M heritage will also be there...but it's certainly the preview of the M2 CS. Otherwise I would not have got the personal invitation that I could already order/reserve a M2 CS

Did you preorder?
Any available bench racing specs?
Any mention of CSL or other special edition?
Any mention of new exclusive color?
When are dealerships supposed to start receiving info?
Do we have an official curb weight?
What stands out that the camo does a good job of covering?

Can you get me on whatever special list got you an invite😁

How has the adaptive suspension been tuned to warrant a transition from standard suspension or just using mperformance coilovers. Why add adaptive suspension?

M8 was already announced in China yesterday. We got to see the car fully inside and out. Funny secret in Europe and NA...

2 million before tax. To give context, it's close to the AMG GTR.

Then the whole room expecting the M2 CookieS unveil may experience a 'Sonny C. in distress' moment...
