Saw an M2 in the wild for the first time today! Anyone from BP?

I was driving on the North side of Indy on Michigan, making a right turn at an intersect when I notice a LBB M2 moving through the intersection on the opposite side of the road. Couldn't believe my eyes! First time I've ever seen one in person, and I must say that LBB looks outstanding in the sunlight. Pictures don't do it justice! Can't wait to take delivery in a few weeks.

Legend has it that there are a only a handful of M2s in Indiana. Any other hoosier M2 owners out there???

So glad I chose LBB. It's a head turner.

Saw 2 LBB's back to back days in the city and driving to NJ. First time I saw one I thought cool! The 2nd one I saw made me feel less special

Snow tires aren't the sexiest part of the car. Unfortunately, those of us who experience harsh winters have no other choice. It beats storing the car and not driving it for a few months. I shall be performing monster snow donut drifts in my work parking lot when the time comes

We expect videos. The ones with regular speed then slo-motion then back. Music is optional.

Thanks!

first one i've seen with winters!

I'm glad I got AW though. The dealer said that I probably own the only AW M2 in the entire metro area. (we only have two BMW dealerships in the entire metro and the other one is brand new and probably not getting allocations for the M2) The LB is wicked but I'm going to guess that 90% of the M2's will be that color

So what do you do when you are having a bad hair day? Hope you have at least 20% tint.

Hey man, don't laugh. I know it's not New England but the I-95 corridor is susceptible to nor easters that dump 1-3 feet of snow in a 24-36 hour time period just about every season. This will be my first RWD/snow tire car and I'll admit, I'm a bit nervous. I'm not one to sit inside until the roads are cleared.

Nice, lake effect snow. Speaking of which, have fun with the possible 2 feet today/tomorrow. Instill confidence in me and tell me you will be DD'ing your M2 during the winter.

Blizzaks. Or their near equivalent if they don't come in the M2 wheel sizes. But I don't plan on driving it a lot, as I will have a winter beater for a daily driver. This will be one of the nicest cars I ever had, and I plan on keeping it a long time, so I don't want to expose it to ice, sand and the chips and wear that comes with it.

Seriously though, if I wanted a high-performance car as a daily driver I would've bought a CLA 45 AMG or an Audi TT RS/RS3.

Best driving vehicle in the winter I ever had was my 2008 Evo X with Blizzaks. Nothing would stop that car and it was actually a ton fun to drive in snow and ice

The M2, not so much, but it will be workable, I assume. Fingers crossed. I'll pick up the car in early January so we shall see.

BTW, we'll only get 2-3".

Big problem with the cars you listed, they're not BMWs.

Blizzaks don't come in "M2" sizes but do come in M3 sizes which is what I got. I'm moving to Philly within the next month or so, I hope it's not too bad.
