2020 M2 Competition to receive darkened tail lights

BMW Press Release:

BMW 2 Series Coupe, BMW 2 Series Convertible, BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo: fresh touches enhance sportiness and elegance.

Among the refreshing flourishes enriching the visual sportiness and elegance of the BMW 2 Series Coupe and BMW 2 Series Convertible are darkened rear lights, which will become part of standard specification in March 2019. The high-performance BMW M2 Competition will likewise come with darkened rear lights as standard. BMW 2 Series Coupe and BMW 2 Series Convertible customers ordering their car in Sport Line specification will find additional bi-colour 17- and 18-inch light-alloy wheels on the options list.

18-inch M light-alloy wheels in twin-spoke design, painted in matte Cerium Grey and with mixed-size tyres, will be offered as a new option for the BMW M240i Coupe, BMW M240i xDrive Coupe, BMW M240i Convertible and BMW M240i xDrive Convertible. The palette of exterior paint finishes for the particularly sporty six-cylinder BMW 2 Series models now also includes the new Long Beach Blue metallic variant, while the optional interior trim strips in smooth matte Carbon Fibre heighten the cabin's sporting allure.

All Sport Line model and M Sport model variants of the BMW 2 Series Coupe and BMW 2 Series Convertible come with a black kidney grille surround. And new to the options list for the interior is Dakota leather trim with exclusive stitching.

Dark rear lights will also be included in the standard specification for the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo from March 2019. Cars with the optional Adaptive LED Headlights also have black inserts for the headlight units, which the M Sport model will complement with a BMW kidney grille, exhaust tailpipe embellishers and exterior mirror caps (optional) in High-gloss Black. Added to which, Jet Black 18-inch M light-alloy wheels in star-spoke design and 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in twin-spoke design with Jet Black polished finish and mixed-size tyres are available for M Sport models as a new and exclusive option. In addition, the exterior colour shade Mineral White metallic can be specified for M Sport cars.

Shame if you got a 2019 M2c and you know, enjoyed it all this time. I mean to think if you only waited several more months you could have had tinted tail lights.

Looks pretty similar... I was hoping they'd come out with an actual dark tint version

What--the non functional vents, random scoops and cutouts in the bumper, grille that barely fits on the front end, and zero concave multi spoke wheels didn't give it away?

Definitely will be interesting to watch - maybe they will take a different approach, compared to VO or LBB....

I prefer the current lights. Darkened looks a bit cheap. I like how the current taillights have a bit of 3Dness to it opposed to just a dark shade. I am really glad I got a 2019 honestly.

I think the release also mentioned adaptive LEDs get black inserts. Wonder what that would look like.

Tinting tails is an all new low.

Anyone can tint the taillights with a simple wrap (if they must). I'm hoping that they start allowing the US cars to have true Euro adaptive headlights instead of the on and off dumbed down ones that we have now.
