Another M2 review from Targa Tasmania - Best MG photo yet

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This is a second more detailed review from Targa Tasmania.

Best photo yet of MG M2 being driven in anger.

More love for the M2.

The BMW M2 is the most accomplished and best bang-for-your buck performance car on the market today.

That may seem like a big call, but we’ve now spent three solid days driving the BMW M2 at its limit through 19 stages of this year’s Targa Tasmania, and at a racetrack, and… it’s the truth.

There are only a few excellent high-end performance cars under the magic $100,000 mark. The Audi RS3 and Mercedes-AMG A45 are the two most obvious choices, and both have been extremely popular for plenty of reasons (read our comparison of the two here).

But, the BMW M2, which starts from $89,900 (before on-road costs), is a different beast altogether.

Rest of review @ http://www.caradvice.com.au/434143/2...arga-tasmania/

I've never been so happy to be apart of the MG group. I don't even have my car yet but May 5th can't come any sooner!

Solid and comprehensive review..thanks.

" Worse still, the Sport+ with traction control partially disabled, is the only way you will get access to the full-blown high-performance engine mapping, which in itself is also the only way you will get those consistent deep crackles from the exhaust on the overrun (as the Sport+ mode gives the engine more fuel to burn, or dump out of the exhaust). "

I didn't realise this...something learnt everyday

I think they got some of their facts wrong. "In that regard, the suspension (which is modified from an M235i convertible, for its lightweight componentry)". It has the same suspension as the M3/4: http://f87.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1214326

Note that the second pic has an aftermarket Ohlins shock...
