Although, I'm not him or know him, but could be completely wrong.

Also on his story this morning he is in it and it looks like the blue stitching kit orange:

Also says later that he wouldn't rather have any other BMW than an M2. And it looks like there may be a shot of the good which is BSM, but then again could be black trim reflecting on windshield so idk.

It has a lot of presence. I think it might be wider than a box truck!

I'm pretty sure he said he was getting one on the Collecting Cars podcast - probably to sit alongside his 1M

Yep he did and he said it's because he thinks it's the last great M car BMW will ever make. Although he still thinks the F80 is the most beautiful M car ever made.

He's had the 512 for a while :




But he confirmed a few months ago that he'd bought an M2C, and here's his BSM on gold 763m... double trouble you might say

He didn't say anything about it being 'the last great M car' on the Collecting Cars podcast. Did you hear him say that somewhere else? He discusses it on the March podcast with Edward Lovett for anyone who wants a listen. Starts talking about it at 34:25 minutes.



To paraphrase on the podcast he said it's basically a modern day Sierra Cosworth - 400HP, compact package, manual transmission. He wants to stop putting miles on his 1M, and he got a great deal on it. His co host asked if he will tune it, he said no as it's a lease. He also felt maybe in 3-4 years he won't be offered cars of this type, assuming he's referring to how good value the M2C is. Sounds like its going to be his daily driver.

As a bonus he also does 'whisky files' on his Instagram stories everyday - someone asked his 5 favourite M cars. E28 M5, E39 M5, E46 M3, F80 M3, E30 M3. odd he didn't mention the 1M but thats probably the whiskey taking.

I heard it on the smoking tire podcast when he was a guest IIRC.

Didn't need to link the collecting cars podcast as I already heard it (I listen to every new episode within a day of it coming out), and recall him saying what you note above.

I thought he bought a HS with 437M wheels and orange stitching awhile back. He posted it on his twitter.

Nope, that was a press car. He just bought a BSM on gold 763s within last few weeks.

Feb 19, he posted on his Twitter "There is still one very good looking BMW. The M2. I've decided to adopt one indefinitely." When asked which one he bought, he said HS, orange stitching, manual, and 437m wheels because the 788m were too heavy.

I love his Instagram stories. Cracks me up when I see him with blonde hair, barely awake sitting in his M2C, and he's like "What're we doing? Oh yeah, let's answer some questions."
