I don't know. I think it sounds good. N55 is better of course, but I still like it.

I think is sounds awesome. Hearing this in person on an M3/4 comp is very very good. I think people underestimate the sound and feel of the S55. I drove my wife's F80 to test drive an N55 M2 just to make sure I didn't want that instead because of everyone's claims of the N55. Did not like it at all. Felt like a slightly better M235i but not special like the F80. A large part of that is engine sound/violence of the S55 which I cannot get enough of compared to the N55. I think a lot of people are going to be pleasantly surprised by how much they like the car/sound. I know I was when we got the F80.

Come mostly for the cartoon hate of the S55. You getting a M2? Oh! I just got a X3 M40i from Steve last month.

Steve is the man! Yeah, I decided to get on the M2C train as the M4 was not doing it for me anymore and I couldn't find an M3 spec that I liked so close to EOP. Steve has a list of like 20 for allocations so had to go to a dealer in TX to get one. Should be doing PCD in the winter time. Excited.

Agreed on the cartoonish hate. Need to sit in and drive an F80/2 to really appreciate the sheer violence and feel of that engine, it is intoxicating and hopefully will make the M2 that much better.

Agree that it does sound much better in this clip than others. Regardless of sound quality compared to the N55, is it just me or does this one sound louder/more aggressive compared to the outgoing M2 (stock vs. stock)?

It's not just you, it is, full stop IMO stock vs stock. The S55 is significantly more violent/aggressive/louder than the N55 stock vs stock. I'm telling you, driving an F80 with that engine/exhaust is a much different experience than the N55 M2. This M2C is going to be really really good sounding/feeling.

None when compared to the ZCP.

Love it. I smile every time I start up my MG 2018 M2, but this makes me feel pretty confident about the upcoming switch. Have my allocation all set up as long as the dumbass in the White House doesn't screw it up with a tariff...
