M2 in Florida?

Just wondering if anyone has a lead on any M2s at Florida dealers that might be available for a walk-around? I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm on a list and won't be ordering for a few more months, but would at least like to see one in person. Thanks!!

I think this kind of crap will die down once there are some M2s on the road and it is not such a new thing. I agree they are trying to milk the hype right now.

Went to see it. It is $80,888. A bargain! They told me the M2 is a "limited 2-year run" and "more limited than the 1M" and "only 1000 will be made" so that's why there is a markup. Then they tried to sell me the M4 competition pack since it is the same price. I just smiled and nodded. I know the real truth.

HOWEVER, the M2 is not any nicer in person than in pictures. I wasn't that impressed. It doesn't have as much presence as I want for my next car. Maybe it's the LBB (MG is my color). The interior is plain. BMW interiors just don't do it for me. I am realizing I'm luxury-performance more than performance-luxury. Pretty close to giving up my #1 spot for my MSRP M2.

I agree about the interior...definitely nothing to write home about compared to other marques.

But I'm surprised that you weren't impressed about the exterior. I just saw an AW dealer car last weekend, and thought it was great. I'm sure I'll like it in LBB even more when I get my car.

I love the M2 fenders in MG. I realized I can't buy a car for fenders. They weren't that bold or impressive on the LBB I saw today. The engine and M chassis is cool and I definitely want performance in my car. But I'm into the M2 fenders the most. Paying $60K for fenders is not smart!

Yep....I understand what you're saying. Gotta love the car, otherwise silly to buy it at any price

Sarasota BMW does indeed have a LBB M2 in the showroom. Or at least they did as of last weekend when I was there to get my car washed. It was there two weeks before that, too.

Hmm I wonder how much over MSRP they're asking for.

Since MG is the color you like the most in pics,why don't you wait until you actually see MG in person before you make your decision?You might really want the car after you see it in MG,even though you don't like the interior of the M2.

A forum member has a MG in Tampa but it's not possible for me to get there to see it before June 3, which is when I am pretty sure my allocation slot will be available to "finalize" since I'm #1 on the list. I'm a little disappointed after sitting in the LBB yesterday.

Sounds like you should...

This is NOT a luxury machine, it's a sports car.
It will ride firmly, it will be loud at times, and the Dct overrun is a bit childish ( but fun for the kid in you !).

Check out the M4. If it's not luxo enough then a sounds like Mercedes/Lexus might be worth checking out.

You don't want to spend 55k and sell in 3 weeks

I spoke with a salesman and he said it belongs to someone already...
