Ohio M2 owners

I just put in an M2 deposit and I was hoping someone would let me SEE their car. Not drive it, but just see it, hear the exhaust, maybe ride along for a few minutes.

I just want to know if the year long wait is worth it.

Anyone in Ohio?

If you're close to the Indiana border, I could probably help you out.

I'm about 4 hrs away from cincy but if I go down to Indy to see my daughter at college in the next couple of weeks I'll let you know. There is a guy with a MG M2 in cincy, look in the what did you do thread. Hopefully you'll get to see both, I know AW doesnt make everyone cream their jeans but I think it looks awesome especially when I start adding cf parts. At least youll be able to see two colors.

If you simply want to see the car in Cincy go to Enthusiast Auto. They had a white one out front a month ago. You might get them to start it up but test drive is probably a no-go.

If you don't mind, let me know as well. I'll be around Cincy/Indy from 8/29-9/2 and still haven't heard this beast in person. My ED is 9/13, so close.

Wow didn't realize such a large contingent the Ohio area. I am in Columbus and next on the waiting list out of cinci. Have been saying I will get my allocation any day now since late July.

I did go check out the m2s at the enthusiast group and the guys there were pretty good once we got deeper into conversations. At the time I was considering buying one of theirs so that made a difference but they let me test drive the m2, m4, m5 without questions. The owner has an alpine white with multiple carbon fiber options which we liked. U may want to give them a buzz... I'm curious where u have ur deposit in cinci since there are only 2 dealers.

Exciting there is also another Columbus member. I had originally planned on AW but think I have switched it up to LBB.

I put my deposit at Northern. Have you been on their list for a while?

I'm at Sweeney as well... I put my deposit down in mid July but it was a spot that someone had gotten back in January that dropped out and I picked up. So it's as if this spot has been waiting since January. But like I said they keep saying any day now...

Haha. Well I still haven't gotten the allocation yet. Like I said... They keep saying any day but that's been for the last month so the fact I don't know when that will come is the more frustrating part. If they could tell me a better timeline it wouldn't be so bad even if it isn't now. Reading through the boards over the last 2 months I feel lucky to have found a spot in July that essentially had been waiting since Jan! That's 6 months of waiting I didn't have to do.

When are they saying u should get an allocation then?

Are you getting yours through one of the dealers here in cbus? When I called both in July both had quit taking names because the waiting list had gotten longer than 2 yrs worth of their expected supply.

They are saying one year to one and a half years. They are averaging 2 allocations per quarter according to them. However, I have heard from someone else that they got 4 allocations this entire year.
