M2 Competition drifts on skid pad (World Cup promo video for Belgium Red Devils)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
HS looks grayish in this video.

Our Red Devils take on Brazil in the quarter-final of the World Cup 2018. The BMW M2 shows them how to drift through the Brazilian defense team.

That looks like Audi Nardo grey! If that's the HS, I'm happy with that. Looks a completely different colour to what we've already seen though.

Why do ppl say "in the wet"? Makes no sense. It's "in the water" if anything. Or are ppl trying to distinguish that it doesn't have to be water because water isn't the only thing that's wet?

Would you say "it's wet outside" or "there's water outside"?

'In the water' usually refers to a body of water like a lake/river - 'in the wet', is just colloquial for any kind of damp/wet condition ...

Looks like BMW really getting in the spirit of the world cup! Hopefully they will showcase an alpine white M2C, with a red cross, emblazoned 'ITS COMING HOME'

Being a German company I very much doubt it

That's your takeaway from the video?

I'll take the Germany World Cup car even though it didn't bring them any good luck apparently... jk

Joking aside, HS looks pretty good but those stickers might have better suited on a white or black car

I think it is time to cancel my order if my next car is going to support the Belgians...

We the Dutch don't agree with that at all...

Yeah, this is the thing with HS in different lighting the colour looks so different sometimes sliver sometimes a nardo grey look. So it be interesting to see this colour in person.

I still haven't decided on what colour I'll order yet it will either be HS or BSM.

I was between HS and LBB, but HS seems interesting enough to give it a go. If it was a standard ‘silver’ I’d consider it too run of the mill.

I'm tempted but then again I would like to wrap it to at some point, but i'd like to see both BSM and HS with the black M Performace wheels first (the 763m).

Lol I know what country the car represents and I'm closely following World Cup too. I meant this Belgium flag sticker would look better on a white or black car, and I liked the black M2C customized to represent German flag better:



However, without the stickers both black and HS are gorgeous colors and still can't decide which one to choose.

It didn't really look like this video to me in person. Maybe under lower / warmer light, dunno. This video really makes it look like Fashion Grey.

I can’t figure this color out. Looks grey here, looked silver in another thread, looks white in others.
