In this video is mentioned (02:35-02:40) that the M2 CS laps the Nürburgring Nordschleife 8 seconds faster than the M2 Competition.

If officially confirmed as accurate, this means a ± 7:44 lap time for the M2 CS.

BMW M lap times (source: here)
  • 7:27.88 = F82 M4 GTS
  • 7:38 = F80 M3 CS + F82 M4 CS
  • 7:38.92 = F90 M5
  • ±7:44 = F87 M2 CS
  • 7:48 = E92 M3 GTS
  • 7:50 = E46 M3 CSL
  • 7:52 = F82 M4
  • 7:52.36 = F87 M2 Competition
  • 7:54 = F10 M5 Competition
  • 7:58 = F87 M2
  • 8:05 = E92 M3
  • 8:07 = E52 Z8
  • 8:09 = E63 M6
  • 8:12 = E86 Z4 M Coupé
  • 8:13 = E60 M5
  • 8:15 = E82 1M
  • 8:22 = E46 M3
  • 8:22 = E36/8 M3
  • 8:35 = E36 M3
  • 8:50 = E30 M3

Wow. I really have to ask BMW to take my money.

There is literally no allocation available.

That startup did not sound very good. I’m a bit surprised but not really. N55 sounds way better.

I'm more interested in the enhanced driving dynamics than the sound. Speed, acceleration, handling, etc.

Sound is an important part of enjoying the car. The N55 sounds better from the outside for sure but from the inside of the car they don't sound too different.

Yup. Also Porsche used some 'dramatic' muzak and pep talk by Andreas Preuninger when introducing the 718 Cayman GT4 in motion at Goodwood Festival Of Speed (see here). It was the first time that Porsche disclosed the sound of the car. Several petrolheads (including myself) were suspicious about the heavy use of muzak: "Let us hear the damn thing". Dan Prosser (PistonHeads) in a later video about the muted sound of the 718 Cayman GT4 and 718 Spyder: "It's a bit like Tom Jones trying to sing through a ball gag, yuk" (see here at 14:29).

Heavy use of muzak in the M2 CS launch video kinda worries me about the M2 CS soundtrack.

I'm figuring the music and generally highly stylized approach to the video has more to do with ///Marketing than anything else.

Understanding that a major part of what makes the S55 sound bad is the separated 3cyl vs. 3 cyl design, I wonder if the the press release is being specific to say that the M2CS has a new "dual branch design" because that is going to make it sound better. In the F8X the CS tune and exhaust is considered to be the best sounding of the range.

Either way I'm not putting much stock in those cold start videos that were poorly done.

There are dozens of videos out there with sound bites of M2C exhaust notes so the sound should be no secret. That being said, the exhaust note can be enhanced quit a bit even on a stock car by adding a tune with GTS roar, custom burbles and exhaust valves open in Sport and Sport+ modes. It is next to impossible to judge exhaust note using a cheap microphone to record and then playing it back on a phone speaker.

I've listened to a couple M4cs at my dealership at cold and warm and it sounds amazing!!!

I just can't believe that the M2cs is going to really sound that bad???

I'm hoping it was just a bad video recording and that it will sound more like what we are all hoping for!

  • 8:35 = E36 M3
  • 8:50 = E30 M3
The E46 CSL was 32s faster than the E46

Another good reason to develop an M2 CSL

The M2 CS exhaust sounds like something is stifling its sound - and more than likely it's the Euro Gasoline particulate filters.

The US-spec version will have a different tone.

Beside the sound factor, it sucks that new, performance vehicles have to be so suppressed..

And also ironic that the US didn't also just abroad in neutering the exhaust, since they usually lead the pack, in tree-hugging, emissions regulations and after the VW scandal, few years ago..

Is this because it’s a pre production example ?

The underside of the m3cs looks ratchet compared to M2CS. Like a Middle school STEM my first carbon fiber experience class.

What is meant by new " dual branch exhaust system" ? How is this different from the MPE and stock M2C system?
