I'm so fucking confused. The shadow edition comes with special wheels, otherwise it's as far as I can tell a black M2 with the regular black accents everyone puts on the car anyway? Why would would you swap the shadow edition wheels with something else? Why not just get a black M2 and get the kidney grilles, side gills, exhaust tips from M4 comp, and pick your wheels and call it a day?

Not watched the video, not too sure why I'd watch someone else order a car....maybe I'm getting older!

However if true, this. Not much point surely if you're swapping wheels??

Wheels and tips are all you need to get if you order your BSM correctly. Or just order it as comes, spend a couple hundred to change the fender gills and chrome rings around the grills...

Why film your negotiations? This is what I despise About social media everything has to be completely braggadocious that benefits one person only. Besides it will be soon his car will be obsolete.
Let's settle a common myth. They are not journalists. And should not be taken as such. And why do they have to soundtrack everything with hip hop or dubstep???

It's not about bragging, it's they have a need to constantly generate content so they have a checklist of things to do to generate content and going to the dealer to order/buy the car is one piece of content. It's all a formula, just like when a youtuber says they made a decision on a color or accessory but says everyone should guess what it is and it will be revealed in a future video. These youtubers are just following the script that generates them content. I find it very boring in the sense that I don't think they like or are really interested in any of the cars they buy or own, they just acquire them because they can run through the stock list of content videos they can make about it before they can sell it and buy another and do a repeat of all the videos they just made on the new car, then just repeat that.

Instead of replying to this post, how about you give us a little taste of the HKS M2 Comp?

Surely you have a picture at your disposal that would break the internet...

He IS just buying a black M2 with some MP mods, it's not a Shadow Edition.
He's just putting Shadow Edition in his title in an attempt to get more views. People need to stop feeding these hacks with Youtube views. These videos are a dime a dozen.
And 9 out of 10 always are annoying dutch douchebags making these types of vids.

The level of narcissism from these people is off the charts. It's truly sad. Maybe they weren't coddld enough as kids :

Because, resale will probably be better.

Apparently it's not even a Shadow Edition. He just calls it that I assume to generate youtube hits before he sells the car in four months.
