M2 Competition revealed and announced by Evo magazine

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
6 page article (with photos of a Hockenheim silver car) in the latest issue of Evo magazine.

Not sure if any of the following is news, but these are things I picked out:

404bhp, 406lb ft.
Manual or DCT.
Weight up by 55kg due to engine cooling changes.
Steel track brakes available - 6 piston with 400mm discs front, 4 piston with 380mm discs rear.
M4 style Carbon strut brace.
Ball jointed suspension.
M sports seat with illuminated logo.
Basic price in UK 47,260 (compared to current price of 46,695), available from July.

So, seems like a bit of a bargain!

If the MSRP is actually only increasing by ~1%, it would seem anyone with a current M2 wanting to sell better act now. That's crazy.

That price view assuming the current M2 is offering less, which we are not sure at all about

All due respect, but there is no way in hell cost-cutting BMW will price the revamp M2 that cheap... However, if you're correct, I am heading to dealership right now to place an order, 'cause that's the bargain of the year. Please upload the article! Pretty please!

Why does there have to be a price jump?

The cost per unit production is dropping with each that they make. Especially when they have oversold by "50 percent " based on their own estimates.

The M2 Competition is essentially an iPhone " S ". or SE type model. It gets the better power unit ( battery /cpu) in the old chassis.


None of these new parts were DESIGNED for
The M2 aside from whatever work it took to route the cooling system and route the exhaust.



Mirrors - per @scott26 - derived from Upcoming X3M

Seats - straight from M4

Upgrade Brakes - 5 series

New Colors - yeah.

Seat stripes - ha !

S55 motor - straight from M3/M4



Did I get all the list of changes ?

Place your order now bro... ?

I guess you are waiting for the official news so that 6000 people all call their dealer and ask to get in line on the same day.

That makes sense.

I'm just saying if you are serious , and you want one, stop typing and pick up your phone and get on a list or place an order.

Even though I just got my LCI M2, it'd be awesome if the price increase for the M2C is that small. Who knows what options would have to be ticked on the M2C to get to the base equipment level of the Civic M2, but no matter what it'd at least indicate that BMW intends to keep this car "accessible."

I still have no intention of getting rid of my LCI M2 regardless of the price increase (or lack thereof) of the M2C...nor do I feel like being on a waiting list for another year or more. I love my car's old, crusty face, crummy seats, and gutless engine. Hell, mine's even gray on the outside to reflect just how old and outdated it is!

That easy huh? To bad it's not available yet and if I ask the dealership, they will feed me some BS over the phone. But thanks for your input, I am on my 5th new BMW, so I am aware how the process work.
