The bigger brakes weigh 16kgs more than the blue ones: unsprung weight.

But hey, no worries.

I know, they are heavy, but I am also an ex-owner of M2 N55 and I wanted to have better brakes and there is no option to carbs.

Why do you say wait until mid 2019?

As far as I know when ordering M2C with the BBK in UK, you have to wait till spring '19 to collect it.

Overhere(Netherlands) and Germany it isn't(wasn't) even possible to order the BBK anymore. It's skipped from the optionslist since 10-2018(?)

@15:46 That orange sticker on J.A's right rear window, where can I get that ? Anybody?

Cheers

I placed the order in October 2018 in Spain and I have delivery date January 2019, although I think it is too optimistic.

My guess is that he didn't order the BMW BBK as he is just going to go to Motech Performance and get aftermarket brake pads, fluid and stainless steel lines.

My dealer told me that when I ordered my M2C recently I could have had the BBK and receive the car at the same time as without the BBK, but I held off as I am going to get some AP Racing BBK's

In his order video, that guy at the dealer said the option wasn't available at that time. You can find the video on his channel

Unlike most YouTube stars, his joy looks legitimate and not an act. Happy for him.

I've got a lot of time for Joe's videos - he's bang on the money with his reviews.
But I think I'd be getting a little board of the F interior by now given the number of M's and M Lites he's owned
