Thanks for the info.

If you run your set of VINs through a public BMW VIN decoder and you decrease/increase the last numbers in a logical order, the following series of 16 USA-spec "M2 Competition" test mules shows up:

M2 Competition - USA (2U73) | F87 (MUE) | COUPE | LL (= LHD) | S55 | 3.0 | 302 kW (= 410 hp [metric] or 405 hp [mech]):

Couple of points to note when taking a closer look at those USA-spec VINs:

    • LCNZ = plain leather + orange contrast stitching (Leder Dakota/schw./kontr.orange)
    • MDB2 = perforated leather + blue contrast stitching (Led.dak.des.perf.schwarz/blau)
    • MDOE = perforated leather + orange contrast stitching (Led.dak.des.perf.schwarz/orange)
  • transmission:
    • manual transmission = stock
    • M-DCT = optional (option code 2MK)
  • wheels:
    • 437M black 19" wheels (base M2) = stock (code 2VZ)
    • 788M 19" forged lightweight wheels = optional (code 2QT or code 29U)
  • interior trim:
    • interior trim high gloss black with chrome trim finishers = stock (code 4LU)
    • interior trim finishers carbon fibre = optional (option code 4MC)

  • seats:
    • Sport Seats Front Driver/Passenger = stock (code 481)
    • M Sports Seat = optional (option code 712)

Wow - Pretty neat. They are all called "M2 - Competition (USA)". And they all have model year "K" in the VIN (= 2019). And one of those (a BSM) has orange stitching leather.

If you go one more - VB08883 - you get one in Hockenheim Silver - with a production date of 0001-01-01 (which I would guess means "in production"). Power = 302. Upholstery = "Led.dak.des.perf.schwarz/blau - MDB2", which is different than the current M2's "Leder Dakota/schwarz Kontr.blau - LCNL"

8882 has a production date of 9/21/2017.

Let the speculation and further sleuthing begin!

MDB2 is the option for perforated Leather with blue contrast stitching.

Well, it's at least a confirmation that BMW M is testing also 6MT and "M Sports Seat" (option code 712) inside an M2 car with S55 engine. No guarantee that it will make it to production, but reasonably quite likely.

If the seats inside the M4 CS got option code 712 (I don't know) and if the M4 CS is supposed to show the way for the M2 CS:

Could the sportseats actually be standard since a lot of the options that we see on the options list are indeed standard ??

Nice but I was hoping they would have stripped a lot of weight out of the car. Maybe the CSL if it gets made is the car I?m looking for.

Why do they call it the "M2 Competition - USA"?

Is it going to be a US only model?

Or is it going to be called the M2 CSL for the rest of the world?

Or, none of the above?

Pretty sure 2NH is not the code for ceramic brakes.

Ceramic b rakes are 2NK.

The prospect of a manual F87 with S55 and F80/2 CS goodies, makes me a happy man.

M sport brakes is a term used on a 340i, etc. I know the M2 already has steel/drilled oversized rotors...so maybe it's even bigger M5 rotors!!! Time will tell.

I'm guessing US vs Euro CS spec will differ slightly when coming off the production line? But I believe the CS and CSL are different...
CS = Competition
CSL = "GTS"

I would assume the option to upgrade to 6 piston carbon ceramic brakes (the gold calipers).

  • 2U71 = M2 Competition - EUR spec Lefthand Drive
  • 2U72 = M2 Competition - EUR spec Righthand Drive
  • 2U73 = M2 Competition - USA spec
So this car is gonna be available worldwide.

The leaked VINs refer to USA spec only.
