Blue/Black for me.

I think the gold can work with Black or White but not Blue or Silver

The stock M2 Sunset Orange with the gold rims would have looked great as well.

Weird, the wheels in the original photos looked much more silver that either of these options.

Not a huge fan of gold or black wheels.

We're gonna have to agree to disagree on that - I know this isn't an M2, but it's basically the right color and, at least for me, this really doesn't work. Not really a fan of the 2 different golds between the rims and the calipers either.

It looks better than a lot of the other combos, but yeah - meh. I wonder what the red calipers would do here.

I am still surprised they don't offer a silver wheel option. Is this the first time on a BMW model where you cannot?

Pretty sure all OP did was screenshot and post the various paint and wheel color combos from the BMW "configurator" - gold calipers is not an available option.

No chance yet, pics are from the website pointed as source which is a sort of configuration with only color and wheels as options :

I think AW with black wheels and red calipers and black with gold wheels and gold calipers works best. It would have been great to see a nice M specific red with either the black wheels/red calipers or the gold wheels/gold calipers combination.

I can't get over the fact it is a blue that is used on X2's and Z4's. Even though it gives a total different impression than on either of those cars, I have not seen the M2 CS live yet, so I am looking forward to what the sun does to it. On either the Z4 and X2, the color is so bleh in real life... There is no dept or special flake in the color like LBB or HS. It is just blue blue blue, like the smurfs.

Still, the car starts to grow on me, but I would never swap my M2C for it. Having bought that one at 66K EUR and knowing that this would cost me in excess off 100K EUR (without any discounts), I am like auch. That is 50% more, but the car is not 50% better.

The M2C is such a bargain now. The car is offered in so many markets with around 15% discount that you really wonder why anyone would opt for a M2 CS. You have to be a collector or completely mental to order one of these.

The CS, or any car will ultimately sell at its perceived value.

Like any other commodities in the world, it doesn't really take being 50% better to demand 50% more.

In the end, however hard a competition tries to be a CS, it will not be it and only end up costing more.

Perfectly said, those are my dilemma's arguments.

The only scenario I finally get a CS over a Comp (I might change my mind) is if they don't sell them for that ludicrous price tag and they start throwing discounts.

In my mind:
- Love this car, but it is not a 100k car.
- I've tested, is awesome (not the CS), but let's face it, the interior has some lack of premium quality (Have a Rover, not talking about options, just details like for example how armrest or doors slams, not mentioning how bad BMW handles the leather, after a few uses looks like a diaper)
- If pay it, pretty sure that won't be like the 1M which is still holding its price (will it?)
- can't justify to me to spend 45k moreover a comp. Plus, if willing to, now I have very cool parts to retrofit (and remaining budget)
- it's funny, is the car I want and for around 70k I think it's an excellent purchase, but for 100k I might be someone with a lack of perspective or limited budget (was that the best you could get for that money?)

I'm really not liking the gold wheels.

I guess I need to see them in person so I can decide my spec.

Not feeling the gold wheels on any of the colors really, but it looks terrible on the silver. Imagine how good the silver would look with those wheels in gunmetal or maybe even graphite.
