I've realized that the best way to get through these long waits is to keep yourself occupied with things that are out of reach.

Lately, I've been spending too much time looking at McLaren P1s and the sort.

That still does not tell me everything about the engine or exhaust or how the car drives or what else is available on the car or the price of the car and so many other things.

I guess it's the same whether you know a little or a lot unless you know everything.

Edit: It's actually harder when you know more than when you knew little.

Your countdown is already behind, because some cheesy magazine or a worker in the exhibit hall will sneak photos onto the Internet before the official embargo ends.

But are the grilles "stupid big"? That's what I have to know!

I am not sure I like the new design...I am sure the air intakes and bumper will look cool...but these X7 grilles?

Just afraid of them being too big...

How is it even possible that we haven't seen the full car more clearly yet?

It's amazing that hasn't happened!

That’s a dangerous game and I can personally guarantee you that our brethren will not be posting anything else anytime soon.

I am thinking they will only post something after it gets leaked somewhere else like the mirrors that were photographed on the test mule and then the close up of the mirror leaked right after.

Maybe they will post a better picture of the wheels since they were already photographed at the estoril circuit but since that picture is not very clear, they might not.

I am sure they understand that it’ll spoil the suspense and would want to save it for us till later.

Having taken delivery of my M2 MCI 6 weeks ago, this is pretty depressing.

However I can console myself in the fact that it'll be at least 5 months until the first deliveries take place.

As much as I would have loved the M2 Competition, and 12 months ago was determined that was what I was going to get, I just couldn't hold out much longer.

I took delivery of my M2 3 weeks ago. Love the car to bits. The Competition reveal is exciting but also telling of how consumerism lives and breaths in our current society. Like many others, I'm swayed by the latest and greatest but moving from an M2 to a M2 Competition would not be a big enough jump for me to justify taking on the depreciation (even with the M4 engine). I'd want a considerably different car after the M2.

Me too, I had my deposit down for months and was number 2, but "10k of list" for my M2 was a no brainer.
