I'm surprised this isn't up here yet. I'm sure the owner of the car is a forum member.

Awesome. Thanks for driving it out to the canyons to get a one take out there. I was wondering how long it would take for a Cali m2c owner to get Zack in the seat.

The new E46 so it'll have transmission issues, vanos failures and be notorious for squeaks and rattles? :

3 months and you still didn't take off the film on the M2 seat emblem? Be careful if you think it's preserving anything, I baked a similar film into a plastic part before and had to replace that part.

Yeah I actually emailed him a few months prior but he just got back to me. Probably was busy.

Bi Color. The front's may be a bit dirty since they get a ton of brake dust super quick.

Apparently these are black, but look just like your bi color. I'm confused???

Can we put the sunroof / helmet incompatibility myth to bed?

Yes, maybe true in some cars, but not this one. Last track day, my passenger was 6'2 and very comfortable with his head room. I am 6' and continue to have no problem at all.

Now for you hard core HPDE guys running cold air into your helmet, by all means don't get the sunroof!

so glad to hear more and more reviews are coming from true PistonHeads and BMW lovers. Also glad to know people are sharing their genuine thoughts on the car and coherence to many owners.

What road is that? Hrmmm

Good review. Looks like the owner was a bit sketched out from the driver going nuts in his M2C haha.

This one gets me. I just put my helmet on inside the car and I have PLENTY of room. I'm 6'1 with a sunroof.

The only reason I have an M4 is because the M2 wasn't available when I was ready to buy. I'm really thinking about this M2C now. Now that I'm moving to Colorado though I'm starting to wonder if it's time for me to spring for AWD.
