Picking up the M2 tomorrow!!

Post by petay135 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 10:28 pm

So tomorrow is the big day, travelling up to deepest Lancashire to pick up the M2, a double quick replacement for the ill fated M3 adventure :(

Pic's to follow and I will be modding extensively over the coming months.

Initial spec MG with HK, ES, HS, Icon Adaptives and a couple of other things. I have added some MP parts initially to personalise the car, carbon diffuser, carbon spoiler, extra carbon interior parts and the alcantara flat bottomed wheel. Also black grilles and side gills. Eibachs and 10mm spacers going on next weekend to get it looking less like an off roader and more like an M car - apologies to those that dislike spacers - it had to be done!

I will need to look at the performance in due course but probably be limited to a Fabspeed 200cell DP.

Fingers crossed all goes well!

Fantastic, interested to hear and see the difference in stance and ride with the Eibach. Not to sure 10mm spacers though but each to their own. I'll be fitting my 300cell HJS cat and wagner intercooler in the next of month or so. Hope it all goes well tomorrow...enjoy.

It will just be a 10mm spacer, when you drop the car it takes the wheels inboard a touch more so to get a more planted stance a modest spacer is needed. Will get som collection pics up tomorrow night, I am having the car prepped at the dealer by a local detailer so it is in the correct condition for the paint protection film which will be going on the car during Tuesday - front end sills and behind rear wheels.

Hey sorry no pics yet, I am going to get the ppf on the front tomorrow and on the way home from the dealer I caught a piece of wood, debris was all over the motorway so no chance to avoid, just very unlucky, have a small series of marks low down on the side of the front bumper so a bit gutted and don't feel like posting tonight. Going to get the detailer to try and wet sand off tomorrow so the ppf can still go on

Not having the best of luck with my cars at the moment :(
